Earlier this month Mayra and I decided to host a little dinner party. Because our guest list was a bit bigger than what either of us could manage at home, we turned to our home away from home: The Creative Edge tasting room. The food is always amazing, the service exquisite and, we’re there so often with clients we feel right at home.
I thought I would share a few images taken by the lovely Heather Waraska of our table top because, while simple, I did think it showcases how going with one clean idea can have big style impact without necessarily being overly expensive. A lot of times a rehearsal dinner locale may need a little sprucing up and, while you don’t want it to take away from the “main event” the next day, a look like this is elegant, while not overdone.
For our little dinner we decided to go all winter white. We selected a silver weave linen- which is kind of bleached burlap with silver threads. Since we were whipping up these flowers ourselves, and wanted to get the most out of our “monochromatic” look, we kept clusters of flowers together. It kept it simple to produce while also making a statement. White tulips, White Ranunculous, white hydrangea, baby’s breath and lamb’s ear. For an added detail, Laura Hooper was able to design these lovely menu cards that we placed at each guests setting. And, because we subscribe to the school of thought that assigned seating makes people feel special, we had Laura create some place cards as well. Hope you enjoy!
