Caylyn's Hollywood themed Bat Mitzvah

I love working with the young people. This Bat Mitzvah at Princess Anne Country Club was one of my favorites.
When her Coordinator, Pearl Taylor, introduced me to her, Caylyn knew that she wanted traditional Hollywood decor: Stars, clapboards, and the Hollywood letters. She also wanted royal blue and tie-dye. Her mom wanted some pink flowers somewhere and the royal toned down on the adult side of the room.
Here are images from David Schwartz Photography that capture what we came up with:

Holiday Party: Green / Gold / Copper

We recently created this space for a client's holiday party at the Founders Inn & Spa. We wanted to make the most of the space and not fight the colors and traditional look of the room. We chose complimentary colors of Moss Green, Antique Gold, and Copper.

Lighting washed the room in a warm glow. Blue Steel Pro Lighting added a gobo to the dance floor and the company's logo to the wall. Pinspotting highlights the floral arrangements.

Hydrangea, Roses, Orchids, ornaments, and branches blended with holiday greens for a modern twist on traditional florals and sat atop crinkle linens.

We used ornaments inside the vase and as table number holders. Napkins were done in an envelope fold.

Mercury look glass held small arrangements and ornaments for the cocktail hour. We used tones of silver and gold with silver crinkle linens.

Our clients loved the look that we created for them and we enjoyed doing it.
