Can I say DREAMING?!

I mean really. I had the opportunity thanks to the amazing Adair Currie to design the lunch portion of the second day of the Academy. From dreaming up ideas to executing the design on the day of, the entire experience was a dream. 

Also, Mandee Matthews is the talented photographer who captured the gorgeous day!

I envisioned a garden inspired dining experience on the water filled with lush greenery. Blue was the perfect accent color to complete the design.

Working with LUXE Party Rentals, Emily Grace Designs and Michelle Perry was incredible! These people will rock your socks off. LUXE provided those gorgeous linens as well as the Wedgewood Napkins which just so happens to be my new favorite napkin color! They are also the people who supplied this absolutely flawless console table that held the luncheons table assignments. Emily's rental items are beyond gorgeous, you can thank her for the lovely Water Goblets as well as the Gold Flatware and Gold Chargers. Michelle is an incredible artist who hand created all of the Place Cards as well as the Menu Cards and Table Numbers. They are absolutely everything I could have dreamed of.

Each table featured a garden style centerpiece placed in gorgeous Gold Pedestal Vases provided by Emily Grace Designs. In addition to the centerpiece I hand lettered table runners that were filled with lyrics of love songs. To complete the look, I strung one single stem of trailing ivy to complete the garden look.

Epping Forest Yacht Club was the most gorgeous setting for this event and I am so honored to have been able to design the lunch in their gardens! I can't wait until I get to design there again!
