Eggplant, Fuchsia & Red: Wedding Events & Expos

Once again, January brings wedding expos and events.  The Brides Club Tacoma Wedding Expo came first.  I worked with American Party Place (they are a rental company) to design their booth.  We started with a base of purple and then wanted to introduce red into the color scheme.  When paired with white and black, purple and red is a crisp combination.  I had my designs ready and then, while I was flying home from the Elevate workshop, I thought we should add fuchsia into the mix and create a rich jeweled look.  Here is the result!

Flowers used: fuchsia peonies, red freedom roses, dark purple schwarzwalder mini calla lilies, pink heather (in the upper right centerpiece arrangement) and pink freesia (in the lower right chair detail).

The week after the expo brought the first ever wedding event at the Gig Harbor Golf Club (GHGC).  They recently completed a remodel on their facility and it looks great.  Steve from GHGC invited us along with Jonz Catering, Red Letter Events, Vivid Images Photography, Trendy Events, American Party Place, Adam’s DJ Service and Celebrity Cake Studio to come set up for an evening of champagne and tasting.  It was a fantastic evening meeting with brides, grooms and their families.  I also loved getting to know some of my fellow wedding professionals in a more intimate setting.

For this event the main color was eggplant, the lighting brought in shades of pink, purple and blue and for the flowers we used purple, burgundy and pink.  All the photos below are courtesy of Vivid Images Photography.  Thanks Kim!

Bottom Right: arrangement of white freesia, pink stock, burgundy snapdragons, purple tulips, burgundy cymbidium orchids and white hypericum berries in a glass cube.

It was a full week but I think one of the best things is meeting new brides and talking with them about their weddings.  I love my job!
