As much as I like a timeless Black & White or monochromatic themed event, I am literally obsessed with Color. Even as an adult; spotting a rainbow in the sky, through the waterfall of the sprinklers, the flare of my wedding ring on the dashboard as I drive…a Rainbow just makes me smile from ear to ear.
Now imagine this palette on your table when dining with friends and family. When done properly, the playful blend of colors provoke your sensory system and leave a lasting impression in the hearts of everyone invited.
With my husband’s birthday coming up this week, I was inspired by the age old complexities of whiskey & cigars (two of his favorites).

Today, many grooms are taking to the runway (the aisle) with unique fashions that show guests that their “soon to be” spouse is not the only one with fashion sense.
Here are few examples of ways to add a little color and style to your special day.
Inspired by Shakespere’s comedy, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, this table is full of whimsy, love and the irresistible lure of the forest. Creating a night so magical, you will wake the next morning wondering if it was only a dream.

Gold has been and will continue to be a symbol of luxury and decadence. After all, they say heaven’s streets will be lined with it. The key is to find the balance between understated and gaudy. Antiqued or brushed gold mixed with a modern flare give a perfect symmetry that exudes opulence.
