Today’s feature is from the most chic birthday ever and this amazing backyard soirée got us envisioning a glam engagement party! Lindsay Lauren Events created a welcoming but utterly stylish table for friends and family to gather around, draped in our Paris Gold sequins and set with lots and lots of champagne! Many thanks to Rachel Capil Photography for capturing each gorgeous detail!
To create an effortlessly stylish look that blended high glamour with the laid back elegance of the backyard, Lindsay Lauren Events created one grand King’s table to bring guests together. Our matte gold sequin Paris Linen added some gorgeous glitter to the table, set with individual bottles of Veuve Clicquot at each seat. To make each guest feel truly honored, the hostess tucked hand lettered menus into each napkin, and gifted them with silver frames holding a photo of a significant moment shared.
Guests played croquet on the lawn, enjoying the decadent cheese display along with expertly paired wines before taking their seats for dinner. Champagne flowed for toast after toast, with a table set with our Art Deco-inspired Cleo Gold Linen to display the vintages on hand. Fraiche Catering treated everyone to an incredible meal to pair with their bubbly!
One of the best things about being in the special event industry are the amazing, creative connections that we’ve made – in the San Francisco Bay Area, and all around the world! The incredible Very Mary Inspired invited us to take part in her Sketchbook Series, a workshop for creative professionals; whether we were sending gorgeous linens for attendees to sketch or hosting a workshop in our showroom, we have loved being a part of her classes! Now she is taking the Sketchbook Series all around the country, and we are so excited to be going with her (at least, our linens are)! Next stop – Maui!
Tomorrow is the workshop in Maui, where Hawaiian event professionals will learn to bring their designs and concepts to life through incredible, creative sketches. Mary is touring the US after that, with stops in Sacramento, Atlanta, LA, and New York City! Check out upcoming cities and classes here!
We were delighted to be a part of The Sketchbook Series East Bay in a big way, by playing host to some of the Bay Area’s most talented event designers and florists in our newly refurbished showroom! True to the spirit of the class, Mary sketched a phenomenal dessert bar to inspire attendees, realizing her vision with Bay Area dessert and design specialists Honeycomb Events & Design. They turned each, intricate detail of her design into delicious reality with a modern, geometric display in a playful palette of aqua, yellow, and coral. A cheerful, patterned cake from The Whole Cake added a fun pop to the geometric inspired treats, asymmetrical backdrop, and hanging gem chandelier, while Soul Flower Design Studio provided truly gorgeous floral designs to accent the spread and our showroom. We picked up her palette with linens in soft shades of aqua, with our raw silk Faux de Soie Aqua and geometric Tetris Aqua Table Runners. We are so excited
We have something a little delightfully different to share today – at least when it comes to linens! The fabulous ladies at Walnut Creek bridal salon Kinsley James Couture got in touch with us when they needed some fabulous gold and champagne linens for their exclusive preview of the latest collection by Galia Lahav Haute Couture! This lovely event was just featured on Confetti Daydreams!
Galia Lahav’s latest collection celebrated Tales of the Jazz Age with romantic, glamorous gowns, so the ladies at Kinsley James pulled out all the stops for an Art Deco themed soiree to allow local brides to see the gowns in person. Petite Pomme Design had already decked out the salon with glittering gold decor for the holidays, which was a perfect fit for the theme. They tied everything together with our Lamour Cashmere linens for an elegant, champagne dessert table, and metallic Marrakesh Ivory and Gold linens on cocktail tables. Enchantment Floral provided gorgeous pink and berry arrangements in gold honeycomb vases to accent the tables with rich color!
We can’t leave out the gowns, of course! Galia Lahav is one of the go-do designers for vintage glam bridal style and her latest collection is no exception. The plunging backs make a gorgeous statement for a modern bride with a bombshell soul, especially when paired with intricate details and sparkling beadwork.
An industry known for throwing fabulous parties must go all out when it’s time to celebrate their own, right? This year’s San Francisco NACE Gala was no exception, with a glamorous Rococo theme that was the epitome of French chic. The Franciscan Room of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel was transformed into an opulent ballroom to allow some of the Bay Area’s top wedding and event professionals to celebrate the end of the season in style. We love being a part of such a thriving, creative community, especially the chance to collaborate with so many talented people!
This year’s gala was no exception, with Charmed Events Group behind the luxurious Rococo theme. The hotel’s cream on blue color scheme inspired our palette, with long tables of our Lamour Blue Light linens topped with floral table runners in Peony Ivory. Frances Lane provided place settings worthy of Marie Antoinette with carved ivory chargers and vintage glassware in pastel shades of pink and blue. Two of our favorite Bay Area floral designers, The Petal Company and Nicole Ha Designs, provided lush centerpieces of delicate pastel flowers accented with gold leaves. A blend of French inspired Louis chairs and clear ghost chairs from Blueprint Studios added a fun modern twist on the vintage theme!
Christmas came early to our inbox, with the shots of this year’s Casa Amore event! The showcase features work of the Preferred Professionals of Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery and their sister site, the Palm Event Center. Engaged couples planning a 2015 wedding at either of these Livermore Wine Valley venues get the chance to see our work first hand, along with some of the most talented event professionals in the Tri-Valley Area! We teamed up with the incredible Nicole Ha Designs to create stunning and unique vignettes to inspire Casa and Palm couples, and now we get to share them with engaged couples around the world! Many, many thanks to the Casa Real team for all of their hard work putting together this incredible showcase, along with our other partners, Fantasy Sound Event Services, Hartmann Studios and Cake Delight. Talented local photographers and Casa alums Tyler Vu Photography and Rhee Bevere Photography were on hand to capture every detail!
Part of the beauty of the Casa and Palm showcase, is the chance to show off more than just one table or small vignette. Our team set up in the Entrance Hall and the cozy Amber Room of Casa Real, while other groups utilized the Sun Garden and the Grand Ballroom. With so much space to play in, we had the chance to create a number of gorgeous looks to inspire couples, from our linens to the floral design, lighting, tabletop rentals, and delicious desserts. Nicole was the creative force behind our varied looks, from the botanical glam Sweetheart Table set with our Paris Gold sequin linens and a lush botanical runner of peonies, roses, and antlers, to the Chanel inspired mini-reception that aptly used our Coco Champagne linens! A monogrammed flower wall and crystal chandelier called attention to the Sweetheart Table, with fully set guest tables on either side. Things took a modern turn with another look showcasing black, ivory, and gold decor – our mosaic print Marrakesh set the tone for graphic, geometric decor and crisp neutral flower arrangements. There was even a modern glam wedding ceremony set up in front of the Amber Room’s elegant marble mantelpiece, set with dozens of ghost chairs and hung with Edison bulbs and iron chandeliers! We hope these gorgeous vignettes inspire our readers as much as the wonderful couples at Casa and Palm!
