It was a cold January day but the inside of the MLRT looked awash in purples and silver. Stunning.
The guest of honor was a seasoned rider so we made horses out of Lucite for her tables and lit them dramatically. The sign in was a book of beautiful horse images. Escort cards were horse shoe and horse shaped cookies. The table numbers were horseshoes. We carried the theme to every last detail! It was one of our prettiest January events. The style was modern and clean with a dash of elegant.

I was thrilled to attend the Idea Factory this past week in Las Vegas. I got to rub elbows with Preston Bailey, Marcy Blum, David Tutera, Sean Low and a host of other Event Planners and Designers from all over the world. I came away inspired and excited , ready to leap into busy season with new energy. This video captures the excitement.

I fell in love with their Boston store on a visit last spring. Paper Source in Philly is celebrating their grand opening on Saturday March 5th, everyone should take a look at this wonderful store. It is eye candy. Makes me want to break out the scissors and glue.

This was one of my favorite “detail” weddings. The bride asked for an all  pearl  studded stephanotis bouquet that was simply stunning. The floral arrangements where bright gorgeous colors of pinks in silver or milky white vases. The ceremony was held indoors since the summer weather was a bit warm. We turned the banquet room into a beautiful ceremony area with cylinders of candles and lots of rose petals. Very romantic!
