Christmas is right around the corner and all the holiday festivities are in full swing! Are you feeling in the spirit? For those of you that love *that* feeling, but maybe aren’t so keen on traditional holiday color palettes, may we introduce this moody + luxe one!
Say hello to holiday hues and pretty pinks, rounded out by sumptuous accents and a dash of sparkle (for good measure). Let’s bring on the romance and enter in to this fabulous fête planned by Celebration Theory + captured in all its glamorous detail by Julia Winkler!
The Moody Florals
All those candles + all those florals!!
Have you ever seen red + pink look so chic and luxurious?
Liezl Kotze Floral Art completely transformed the space with the elegant use of florals.
Holy DUTCH BRAID! If you thought the florals were good…the hairstyles by Elizabeth Rae were just as iconic!
And then it was on to the tablescape! Though this space is bright + airy, the dark and moody details were carried through in the tabletop rentals from Ehire, cool and modern furniture from Sitting-Pretty Bespoke Events, and regal paper goods Fleur Design Studio crafted.
Seriously can’t get over that sort of ombré created with the melding of the pink and white florals, with just a touch of white.
Those hues!! Who else is crushing on this palette?
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention this shimmering gown. Helloooo, Lena Lisa masterpiece!
One word: STUNNING.
To top it all off, Blush Bespoke Bakery created this simple and striking confectionary delight.
How’s that for modern, moody + luxe holiday inspiration? Cheers to the team behind this editorial and wishing you guys a Merry Christmas!!
