The Belles' Book Launch Party: Books of Wonder

We were thrilled to work with author Dhonielle Clayton to plan a gorgeous and successful book launch party for her book, The Belles. Our party theme revolved around the setting of the book, New Orléans, and included aspects of the Marie Antoinette era. 

We worked with vendors to create a table full of elegant tea party desserts and went with a feminine color pallet of pinks. We also include various elements of flowers; paper flowers for the wall, fresh flowers in an elevated vase and flower designs on the desserts.

Family Tree Dinner Party

When I began working with my client on the family dinner she was planning to host at her Upper East Side apartment, I immediately thought the perfect theme would revolve around trees.

This dinner will be the first time her adoptive and biological family, and in-laws meet. I wanted it to be thoughtful and feel special for guests. A tree can symbolize many things, including family. A tree sprouts from a seed, grows roots and becomes firmly planted in its foundation, branches out, and creates a new fruit that gives life to the next generation. 

The elements I choose to represent this were acorns, rocks, LED tabletop trees, and magnolia branches.
