A Red and Black Birthday

December 17th, 2012

What a fun time we had planning this birthday party for a client who we have grown to love through the years. When she came to us with the idea of surprising her boyfriend for one of his milestone birthdays, we were so excited to make her vision come to life. It was held at their residence which is surrounded by lush greenery and beautiful waterscapes so we focused our design on the outdoor areas bringing in gorgeous decor and florals that complimented the scenery. It was such a fun evening with great music, company, and delicious food from Tres LA. Most of all, the birthday boy enjoyed himself thanks to all the efforts of his girlfriend and everyone involved. Enjoy!

Winter Wonderland Inspirations

December 4th, 2012

This is my favorite time of year; not only is it happy and festive, but it's a great time for me to gather inspiration. I absolutely love all things white so this month my focus was winter wonderland. You can truly find inspiration in anything whether it's a store window, a piece of furniture, or a chandelier. These are a few things I love that we can pull elements from for the events we do.
Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!

  • #Repost @archdigest - #JacquesArpels was inspired by the clover shapes in architecture inspiring him to design his famous Alhambra collection, which is also our inspiration for one of our upcoming events! #inspirationeverywhere #designinspiration #eventdesign #alhambra #moorisharchitecture #vancleefarpels ・・・
Half a century ago, inspired by the decorative patterns Jacques Arpels observed on his travels, @vancleefarpels launched Alhambra—a clover-shaped gold medallion resembling a Moorish quatrefoil. “As an architectural element, it appears in almost every culture,” says Van Cleef & Arpels’s current president and CEO, Nicolas Bos. “In jewelry, it’s just as adaptable.” Today the French luxury brand remains captivated by the motif, having reimagined it in myriad styles and stones. This past May, to mark the Alhambra collection’s 50th anniversary, Van Cleef launched nine new pieces with a party at the 16th-century El Badi Palace in Marrakech. While celebrating with them, AD found a few more not-to-miss sights in Marrakech, including the  14th-century Islamic college Ben Youssef Madrasa pictured here.
