Mehndi Party with Kantha Patch Work Throw Pillows

November 13th, 2015

This client  booked us two months ago to do her wedding with four back-to-back events.  The first kick off event was to take place at bride's residence in Rancho Santa Fe.   Wheels started turning in motion and once we had a good idea about her themes and colors and after doing a site visit, the color palette was decided for each event. Because the client is in the high end garment business and supplies to high end boutiques in LA and has a huge manufacturing operation in India, we requested to have Kantha work throws and pillows in different colors for the first event.  Kantha work is a highly specialized art of patch work throws in vibrant colors and very distinctive of Rajasthan. On the day of the event, Nikki and Madiha arrived at 9 am and under their supervision, the living room at the house was cleared.  A beautiful traditional swing arrived from LA Laden with fresh flowers where our bride sat for her henna application. Dozens of Kantha work throws were laid on the floor with colorful pillows that were custom made in India for this occasion.  Special furniture and draping in lime green and purple were incorporated in the design. Outside by the pool, a casual vibe was created with a beautiful bar, and lanterns lining up the pool area. The buffet table had a beautiful Buddah and guests noshed on delicious appetizers and Indian fare from various regions of India. The DJ played upbeat Bollywood music and guests danced till late at night. Because the bride had a distinct idea of her henna and had chosen a very intricate pattern, it took eight hours to have the bride's henna completed with her taking breaks in between!  Close family members and friends got their henna as well.  It was a beautiful event saturated with a lot of color and still had elegance and charm about it.   Exquisite Events Mehndi Party Exquisite Events Mehndi Party Exquisite Events Mehndi Party Exquisite Events Mehndi Party Exquisite Events Mehndi Party Exquisite Events Mehndi Party Exquisite Events Mehndi Party Exquisite Events Mehndi Party Exquisite Events Mehndi Party Exquisite Events Mehndi Party Exquisite Events Mehndi Party Exquisite Events Mehndi Party Exquisite Events Mehndi Party Exquisite Events Mehndi Party   Thanks for all the help from our vendors:
