Please be seated

I came across these photos today of a wedding we did several years back. The client asked us to “bring Maui stateside” in an elegant way. We did these long family style tables covered in a chartreuse green silk and used rich mahogany chairs to add some depth. The napkins were tied with raffia and a single orange orchid was placed in the middle. I think it’s such a lovely set up for a dinner party or a birthday… a different take on Tropical.

Loved the Bright Orange Orchids!

These small clusters of votives were along all the tables and mixed in with orchids… something like this is a great inexpensive option if you can’t spring for a bigger centerpiece.

Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
