Let’s face it: green is a color that never goes out of style. It’s especially evident as it occurs in plants + florals, a neutral backdrop that adds life to any design — we love it! So, because tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day and our very name is Green Wedding Shoes, we’ve got a fun little green design inspiration for you today!
Summer Newman Events and Lark Farnum Floral Design met up at the lovely Shade Hotel in Redondo Beach to create elegance and romance by way of a dramatic table design and a boho-inspired bride! The florals are certainly a main event and we’re loving all the minimal elements that rounded out the day.
SDK Photo & Design was on hand to capture it all…let’s have a look!
An Array of Green + White Florals
LOVE this overgrown floral trend! We got the scoop on this spread form floral designer, Pinky, of Lark Farnum Floral Design:
When it came to florals, I wanted to bring freshness and dimension to the traditional greenery garland by creating an installation of unique foliage and florals. Japanese Spirea and Camellia foliage served as a base for the installation. Using unripe Blackberries, Anthurium, Hellebores, Dahlias, Green Centered Ranunculus, Garden Roses, and Lisianthus brought depth and texture to the table. My goal was to make the romantic florals feel like they were growing out of the table and juxtapose with the modern table setting.
The Table Setting
Summer of Summer Newman Events set the table with a mix of modern + sophisticated elements:
I love incorporating cool prints and patterns in my designs, so when I saw La Tavola Fine Linen’s Polarize linen, I was immediately in love. With this bold linen, I decided to add simple and soft modern touches like La Tavola’s velvet sage napkins and vellum menus designed by Darla Marie Designs. The dinnerware provided by Soiree8 along with Vini’s Party Rentals’ champagne flutes created a minimalist foundation to build the design upon.
And Vanilla Bake Shop baked up a sweet finish for the day! This torn-edge, marbled cake is a modern take on the classic 3 tier and we’re loving it. Thanks to the entire talented team for sharing this fresh inspiration with us!
