Inspired by the Viceroy Palm Springs

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to visit the Viceroy Palm Springs for the weekend. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see photos of the gorgeous property by the one and only Jose Villa! Today, though, I have a fun tablescape that some wonderful, creative vendors put together to show as an example of what could be done with the beautiful outdoor event space.

Kelsey from Alison Events and Danielle of Brown Paper Design were the creative minds behind this fun table. The Viceroy has a very mid-century modern look, with a color palette centered around whites and blacks with splashes of yellow. They thought it would be fun to play off that color scheme, but also add in some flirty, playful touches as well. From Danielle, We were really inspired by Kate Spade’s current campaign. There is something so fun and lighthearted, yet still very modern about her ad’s latel

y. We wanted to bring that feeling to the Viceroy and thought doing such a bright palette would be a bit unexpected bride’s looking at Viceroy. Sort of a weekend escape wedding. Gorgeous photos below by Jose Villa.

We had the cutest guest stop by! Another great thing about the Viceroy Palm Springs – they are a dog friendly hotel, so you can have your puppy there for your big day. :)

Such gorgeous + fun bouquets!

And what a creative idea for the place card table! From Danielle, because of the heat of Palm Springs- fabric flowers seemed like a really great way to bring in tons of saturated color without having to worry about things wilting in the heat. It was a lot of work to make those flowers, but I think it really added a nice tactile touch. And they are great memento’s of your wedding.
