Our design challenge...to create a tabletop display good enough to eat and with the help of our partners at Charm City Cakes that was not a difficult task. The inspiration for this design started here with this color palette--bright tangerine ("Tangerine Tango" being the Pantone Color of the Year!), teal and crisp white. I wanted to work in the ombre trend (which I am still loving) especially in florals, and create a modern gallery feel. So many brides are requesting a fresh twist on traditional design, incorporating plenty of special details for a very personalized event start to finish. 2012 is all about bold colors mixed with softer hues and taking risks to make each celebration one to remember.
I enlisted the help of the team at Fleur de Lis Florist to create (what I refer to as) "my ombre dream." To have seen these florals in person was breathtaking. The paper details including the framed sign (above), place cards and menus were crafted by the talented Carla David Design.
Want to look behind the scenes at pulling all this together? Peek here.
This is the sketch of the cake BEFORE the making of the masterpiece and we couldn't have been more delighted with the finished design. We added a little sequin trim to our cake stand and it was just the embellishment we needed to make this cake sing, sing, sing.
Many thanks to each of our talented vendor partners including:
Charm City Cakes, Carla David Design, Fleur de Lis Florist, Table Toppers, Gore Dean,
The House Downtown, Macy's, Pier 1 Imports, and the Tremont Plaza Hotel & Grand Historic Venue.
