franciscan gardens open house // table design + styling

a few weeks ago i was asked to design and style 2 tables for an open house Franciscan Gardens was holding. the goal was to showcase some of their vendors, display their event space and let guests try some of the new treats 24 carrots was offering all based around a great gatsby theme. with the direction given, i knew i had to incorporate 3 main elements... pearls, feathers and antique silver accents. so here is a look into a few of the details beautifully captured by Anne Watson Photography.

here is the dessert table. i created calligraphy tent cards for each dessert displayed on gorgeous marbeled paper.

the backdrop was made up of single strings of pearls each with a feather at the bottom.

i also helped style, bring in some props, and incorporate a few touches of calligraphy on the favor table where they gifted guests with pretty little champagne coupes filled with champagne gelee.

you can see many more pictures here and even a video!
