Hello all! I hope that everyone in Melbourne is taking advantage of this gorgeous weather, and everyone else is simply enjoying that tomorrow will be Friday! Ah, blessed Friday. One thing I do miss about not working “for the man” (now that I am the man..well, woman), is Friday night drinks with colleagues. I actually really liked them (both the drinks and the colleagues), and it was something to top off the end of a long week and welcome in the weekend. Now, I’m more likely to be found in front of the computer, furiously typing away or scheduling some sort of project/post.
I can’t complaint of course, because I get to work with lovely couples like Sophie & Leigh, whose Engagement I am styling. Sophie came to me with a dilemma – her venue and her theme didn’t match in the slightest, and she wanted to know how we could maintain her theme but not have it clash with the surroundings. She’d be told by another stylist that it wasn’t possible, adn that she should change her theme to suit the venue – yikes! Could you imagine!? So, as I love a challenge, we set to discussing how we could work with her colour palette of classic White, Silver and Black, with a theme that incorporated bows, with the orange funk of Groove Train!
I’ve been busy sourcing glitter card, fabric, stands and all sorts of fabulous items to ensure that the Engagement showcases their style, including the knockout hit – 3 foot white latex balloons from Occasion By Design as the point of impact, to draw away the attention from the orange! I can’t wait to see the reaction to these. Sure, they gobble the helium, but the effect is absolutely worth it. In addition, there will be a fabulous dessert table, from the delicious Sweet Sugar Treats!
So, to begin, I made a Pinterest board of my thoughts and our discussions, and we’ve bounced from there. I’ll be busy crafting silver glitter candles, tulle poms, buntings and other bits and pieces in the lead up.
I’m looking forward to sharing their day with you in March!
