SCOTT AND MICHELLE’S DECATUR HOUSE WEDDING

August 28, 2014

What a magical evening. A small intimate ceremony followed by a tasting dinner at Decatur House was the perfect Wedding celebration for Scott and Michelle. They are both foodies and having a culinary experience was one of the important things they wanted to incorporate into their special day. Jose Andres catered a four course tasting menu with wine pairings while the guests enjoyed live music from Bon Musique. Music and entertainment was another component they couldn’t live without. Kicking off the celebration with Scott’s daughters singing “Marry Me” by Train during the ceremony was the perfect personal touch. Later in the evening, guests enjoyed walking oyster shuckers, an illusionist and the night ended with the fabulous 19th Street Band.

Take a look into this romantic and intimate DC Wedding!

MIXED METALLICS

August 26, 2014

This post was inspired by the recent TLC Sunday Brunch series Jodi Moraru was featured in. If you haven’t yet see this coastal seaside tablescape and details, view it here!

Some of our clients often feel like they have to choose between silver and gold. We love to mix it up and give them the best of both worlds. For our Sunday Brunch series we layered a gold placemat with silver flatware. It comes as a surprise to some, but mixing metallics actually creates beautiful dimension and can be unexpected, in a good way!

Get inspired today to mix metallics….. silver, gold, bronze and sparkle!

SOPHIA’S VINTAGE CARNIVAL 1ST BIRTHDAY BASH

August 21, 2014

Sophia’s 1st Birthday was designed around this little girl’s bright and bubbly personality. Each and every element of this Vintage Carnival bash had a story to tell. Her love for animals and the color pink were evident in each of the customized details designed just for her. The perfect favors were created for each guest, with a custom placement and puppet chosen based on each kid’s personality.

Outdoors, the glamorous circus top tent was all about fun and entertainment, not just for the kids to enjoy but also the adults. Petite mushroom stools created the perfect setting for a magician and puppeteer performances. The circus tent was filled with bean bags, coloring books, bowling and sweet treats.

Occasion’s caterers created a fun mini steakhouse station for lunch. Perfect for a one year old’s birthday, the items were petite but also filling. The kids ate circus shaped chicken nuggets, mac and cheese in mason jars and had little milk jugs with fun straws. Sophia’s had 3 cakes which made for the perfect circus trio.
