Elegantly Whimsical!

Morning Mass...Luncheon Reception...Whimsical yet Elegant!

I was asked to be the coordinator and create the look for the reception. The colors are Navy Blue and light pink. The Bride and Groom love candy and they wanted to incorporate that into their theme. We selected Navy Blue Satin Table Squares for the round tables at the reception with Light Pink Linen Napkins. The dinnerware is all white and the glassware crystal. The centerpieces will be clear crystal bowls filled with different types of Salt Water Taffy (Pink, White and Blue), inserted will be pink and white pin wheels and silver willow...the perfect whimsical look...set upon a mirror surrounded by votive candles. The Candy bowls will be placed on a Candy Bar Table at the end of the reception and will be the favor for guests.
The programs are done in a Pale Pink Metallic with a Pearl Metallic inset. The whimsical design holds a clear rhinestone mimicking an engagement ring! The text pages are pearl Metallic with navy and pink text.

The Escort Cards are Pearl Metallic framed in Pale Pink Metallic mounted on Navy Metallic, the accent is the whimsical design with the clear rhinestone.

The Favor Box for the Candy bar is done in silver linen with a pale pink organza ribbon. The Pearl Metallic text block is framed in Navy and Pale Pink Metallic, accented with the whimsical design with the clear rhinestone.

The Table Names/Numbers are based on the flavor of the Taffy in the bowl for the centerpiece. The theme is carried out as with the Program, Escort Cards and Favor Boxes.

The Hotel Bags are Silver and continue to carry out the theme! I was asked to not only prepare the bag but to fill them...always fun to shop!!

Music will be provided by a combo of Piano, Cello and violin...the perfect compliment for a Bridal Luncheon Celebration!!

Pictures to come of the affair!

Baltimore Raven's Fans- Wedding Package

The Bride and Groom are Baltimore Ravens Fans...their colors are Metallic Black, Deep Purple and Gold. The Bride shared that she really liked the Damask was fun putting all this together for the perfect look of fun and elegance they were looking for.

They chose to go with a 6 x 6 folio...with that in mind...I went with a square theme throughout. The White Linen invitation is mounted on a Gold and Deep Purple frame with a Double Damask Design, accented with a clear rhinestone on the left side. The text is done in Black with the Names done in Deep Purple. The Reception, RSVP and Accommodation cards are done on a White Linen with the Damask Watermark in the Background. The text is done in Black and Deep Purple.

The Escort Cards have the damask design in the watermark in the background...the framing is done in gold and deep purple on a metallic black background. The table cards mimic the invitation and the accent rhinestone (amethyst, gold or clear) indicates the entree choice.

The Hotel Bags for guests are gold with the Metallic Black and Deep Purple frame...the text block reflects the Damask watermark in the background. The programs are 6 X 6; the cover is done in Black Metallic with the Deep Purple and Gold Frame around the text on White Linen, a white organza ribbon brings it all together.

The Save the Date Magnet sets the tone and gives the invited guests a glimpse of what the wedding will be like. The Magnet is framed in Deep Purple and Gold with a White Linen text block done in Black and Deep Purple text. An Accommodation Card is enclosed for guests to make their reservations in the Wedding Block ahead of time. The envelope is white linen with a black gold lining.

The wedding and reception are being held in Old Town Alexandria...we will be incorporating landmarks in the Washington DC/Alexandria area for the table names...Lots of Fun!
