December, 2012

My previous assistant was married at the beginning of the month. It was a sweet wedding with beautiful details. She wanted a winter wedding with no hint of Christmas as the wedding was held December 1st. Her  colors were creams with a touch of peach and winter gray green. Just perfect for the look. Birch containers were used for the cocktail hour. We created a really fun escort card table with a wooden rack the groom built. The escort cards, table numbers and cookies were winter white owls. The favor was an adorable beer cozy.

A wonderful Bat Mitzvah at Peche

This party came to use very last minute. We swooped in to help pull together the vision of the client and the caterer, Peachtree & Ward. I used the invitation as our quick inspiration. The envelope liner pattern and monogram were repeated in light patterns throughout the party. The client had a picture of hanging fringe that she just loved –so we made that happen in 2 different areas, adding a really cool vibe. We added some shimmer linens, minimal floral accents, furniture and pillows for a smart, modern look. The kids area was filled with rugs and bean bag chairs and one bean bag was Chloe’s sign in!
