Design Ideas For Any Valentine’s Day Festivity!
We’re hopping on the bandwagon early to bring you some inspiration for your upcoming Valentine’s Day soiree- or quiet night at home with your boo. If you think the locale of the photos included in this blog looks familiar… it’s our very own warehouse! We transformed a spot in our warehouse into a loveable cocktail hour set-up. We could’ve done a traditional tablescape- but that felt a little old school for what we’re looking to achieve. We wanted to create a scene that would apply to a home-thrown party, or a corporate affair to celebrate staff members.
With a few little tricks up our sleeves, we incorporated our Hamptons bar & more into a look that Cupid would approve of! And hello (!) you can rock this look too! We scored the banners and hearts from the craft store- so there’s no excuse for not going all out this Valentine’s Day!
Side note… We really enjoyed eating the candy 🙂

Pantone Color Report Fall 2018
We get so giddy with the thought of Fall… Especially when us Floridians spend most of the year on the surface of the sun. Yes we’re being dramatic, but it’s also somewhat true. One of the things we love most about Fall are the color palettes, because at the base of every great design is a perfectly matched color scheme!
In this blog, we’re serving up some Fall color palette inspiration along with the intention behind each hue.
If you’ve been around the block, you know that each year Pantone releases their top picks for seasonal colors. This momentous occasion could definitely be considered the event industry’s NFL/NBA draft.
It’s so exciting to see what colors we may get to play with throughout the year, as they catch the eyes of our clients.
Institute Press characterized Pantone’s picks for Fall 2018 as: “Autumnal hues that evoke the feeling of leaves on the forest floor, rich plumage and twilight reveal a modern fall palette of deep and rich tones with outbursts of colorful surprise.” Now that sounds like a romance novel- so color us ready for a stroll through the forest.
While this doesn’t look like a “traditional Fall color palette” we love its opportunity for unique looks. After all, self-expression is always in style!
Red Pear: Deliciously deep red, whose luscious depth entices.
Valiant Poppy: Brave and outgoing red shade effusive in its allure.
Nebulas Blue: Reminiscent of twilight, a thoughtful, starry-eyed blue.
Ceylon Yellow: Savory and spicy yellow adds an exotic touch.
Martini Olive: Smooth, sophisticated and urbane green adds depth to the Fall/Winter 2018 palette.
Russet Orange: This forest floor orange speaks to earthen warmth.
Ultra Violet (Color of the year!): Inventive and imaginative Ultra Violet lights the way for what is yet to come.
Crocus Petal: A cultivated and refined hue adds a light and airy spring-like feeling demand.
Limelight: Animated and effervescent, a pungent yellow-green becomes the center of attention.
Quetzal Green (Our personal fav!): A deep elegant blue-green hue suggestive of rich plumage.
A Modern Bohemian [Rhapsody]
We’ve got modern bohemian vibes on the brain!
Recently, we took part in a modern bohemian wedding inspiration photoshoot at the gorgeous Art & History Museum- Maitland. This venue is jam-packed with old-world charm and Mayan Revival architecture from the 1940’s. Melanie Paige Events was inspired by the grounds, and transformed the Chapel and Courtyard space into a modern-boho dream!
Bohemian design meets acrylic details with this ceremony and reception set up. Our ghost chairs have a weightlessness to them, allowing the architecture to speak for itself, while creating a modern & cool effect. For the tablescape, our 8ft acrylic table kept things from appearing heavy as it was adorned with floral and geometric charger plates from Treasury Rentals. Our ghost chairs were transitioned from the ceremony space to the mock reception, keeping a consistent look.
To infinity and beyond!
We are absolutely in love with how our Infinity arch was transformed! While it’s beautiful on its own, we can’t help but be obsessed with the hanging pieces and statement floral.
And can we talk about the dress for a moment?! The fringe, wow. The crochet / lace detailing, WOW. Stunning!
Boho vibes aren’t all teepee’s and deserts. You can truly make this design style you’re own- especially being in Florida, where there are no deserts… obviously. We love the idea of mixing in modern details because it’s like you’re getting the best of both worlds! The key to a bohemian [rhapsody] is a care-free attitude and some fringe (which never hurt anyone!).
