grand opening party for wildflower linens

back in october, wildflower linens celebrated the grand opening of their new costa mesa showroom...when they asked me to sponsor a tablescape at the event, of course i said yes! they have some of the most fashion forward, innovative, couture linens in the event industry...not to mention they always are so fabulous to work with...

they chose the black and white damask linen for me and i got to create whatever i wanted for the i went with silver artichokes and candlesticks, along with black urns and vessels, packed full of white and cream florals (hydrangea, roses and tulips)...

all in all, the event was fab and i was honored to be involved! also, a big thanks to marisa holmes for the lovely photos and to carolyn chen for all her fantastic planning!
