Disney Wedding: The Lion King

Can you feel the love tonight

Straight out of the African savannah, this bride is looking to get closer to her roots. You can’t go wrong with this theme, when your whole philosophy in life is Hakuna Matata. A monochromatic look gives this design an elegant and timeless look. African patterns enriched on neutral colors make a strong statement. I especially appreciate the combination of straight lines with the Ikat pattern on the plates. Certainly unique! The bridesmaids will be super appreciative to wear an Alberta Ferretti dress that is loose-fitting, light, and fresh. More energy for the dance floor, right?

Looking for a memorable moment for your guests? How about integrating an exotic meat or two to your dinner menu? Ostrich or kudu come to mind.

Dear bride, we know you march to the beat of your own drum.  Now is time to have those two hearts BEAT as one, and enjoy your most glorious day!

Mood Board: Candy Corn Inspired Halloween Party

Halloween Mood Board: Candy Corn Inspired Halloween Party

In my last post I shared that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, but what I left out was that my favorite Halloween candy growing up was candy corn. I guess that when you are young and your palette has yet to develop simple flavors are the best. 🙂

In any case, in the spirit of Halloween I wanted to create a mood board inspired on my favorite childhood candy. Now let me share a secret with you, quite often I start with an idea that evolves into something completely different by the time I’m done. Most designers and artists will tell you the same. If you visit the complete Pinterest board here you will see that I pinned items for both styles before I decided to go with the more traditional look. I started with a modern style and the color palette I thought I wanted (orange, yellow and white) and ended up with a traditional style and a yellow, orange, silver, and black color palette. It wasn’t intentional, it is just where the tablecloth find took me. It was an instant attraction.

Except for the pillows, all of the items selected are rentals. I like to stay in the know of the new inventory that the different vendors bring, so exercises like this help me find new things. What I like about this design is that even though it has the candy corn colors it is still very elegant and it has a luxurious feel to it. Let’s party!
