A Vibrant and Eclectic Springtime Reception Setting

Friday, March 21 2014

From a boho-glam affair to a safari-inspired retreat, the one-of-a-kind textiles from Designer Specialty Linens Luxe collection are a great start to building wedding decor. To inspire couples in the planning stages, eight wedding event designers and florists collaborated to create beautiful and unique tabletop decor based on these stunning linens and debuted their visions at Long Beach's newest reception venue,The Loft on Pine.

For the ladies from Sterling Engagements and Shawna Yamamoto Event Design, the Luxe Event was just one of many successful collaborations. The two have worked together numerous times in the past and knew that they wanted to push the boundaries with this design. To do so, they pulled inspiration from the "Ikat" linen which features a detailed pattern of blues, greens, and grey and from the elegant interior design of The Loft On Pine. "We pushed ourselves to embrace the rustic vintage space and incorporate a common bond of modern elements right with it!" described Alexandra of Sterling Engagements. "I loved [Ikat] for its detailed pattern and hue of colors...it was pushing me to go outside of my norm and dive into a not-so comfort zone."

From the linen-wrapped dark wood panels to the dramatic cascading floral displays, the tablescape came together flawlessly. Shawna designed arrangements that incorporated Parrot Tulips, Garden Roses, Hydrangea, and exquisite Japanese Ranunculu and kept with a yellow and blue color scheme. They used ghost chairs and acrylic cubes to add a modern twist and added a final hue of color with a bright blue glass. By thinking outside of the box, the talented ladies were able to create a glamorous avante-garde design that would tie in flawlessly with any outdoor springtime soiree.
