calling all creative

Saturday, July 26, 2008



So we just finished up a photo shoot for San Diego Style Weddings Magazine yesterday in which we were asked to do a concept and design for a table scape. It was so much fun!! I paired up with my mom from Twigg Botanicals who did the florals and we got to work!
One of my favorite details of the day...kind of a last minute idea to go with our favors
The linens that Wildflower had could not have been more perfect! We were so excited to find these! Everything they have is beautiful though..linens to inspire and hundreds of weddings waiting to happen!
We must have changed our concept at least 3 times...but were finally inspired by this tea canister with the beautiful elephant. Our concept quickly became titled "Tea in China". Sidenote: We learned that day from the very talented Haydee of Haydee's florals that an elephant with it's trunk up means good fortune. Isn't that so appropriate for a wedding theme too. I loved that! Unfortunately...I've already done a good fortune themed wedding...and this wedding quickly moved from China to somewhere in Bombay. It took on a much more Indian type feel and we have been left without a title!
So...this is where I'm enlisting all of your creative help and inner genius. We haven't come upon just the right name for our table and I was hoping you could help. As of now, we named it "Indian Ocean". Any other ideas? Something with Bombay perhaps, tea,tangerine or mandarin orange. Please.....anything that comes to mind. I would love to hear any and all ideas and hey it may just make it into the magazine. THANKS in advance and love to you all! I'll have the real professional pictures soon to share. Stay posted!!
