Take a seat at the Queen’s Table! Whoever said weddings were the only affairs to be extravagantly glamorous, must not have celebrated a milestone birthday!
As a party girl, I dream in fabulous. And this stylized feast takes the cake. It only seems fitting that this luscious soiree found inspiration in our VERSAILLES Collection.
The menus and place cards designed as part of the Versailles Collection were set amongst the most fancy accoutrements. From the exquisite gold flatware, antique pink goblets and pretty plates from Cheri’s Vintage Table, plus the courtly chair ornaments from Nuage Designs, I felt transported back to those regal dinner parties believed to be hosted by the great Marie Antoinette herself.
Of course the overall beauty of this tabletop design is credited to the enchanting floral creations by Karen Tran and the coordination/styling by Susanne Duffy of Crown Weddings, two of my dearest friends and top talents in the business. I was over-the-moon to collaborate with these fine ladies to create an experience of a lifetime and be a part of this romantic result!
Karen Tran (pictured above) is an internationally recognized floral and event designer known for creating grand scale floral arrangements and teaching her craft in master classes around the world, entitled The Floral Experience. I have known Karen for years and continue to admire her eye for glamour and style while appreciating her esteemed talent. Her flowers are always bloomed to perfection, lush in arrangement and tailored to make a show-stopping impression, each and every time.
Susanne Duffy (above) of Crown Weddings is a wedding planner extraordinaire. Originally from North England, Susanne’s background is in luxury hospitality, having worked at the most esteemed Five Star hotels in London. With her exquisite attention to detail, charming British accent, dynamic personality, and impeccable style, Susanne’s events are always executed flawlessly and grace the pages of many publications and blogs nationwide.
The combination of Karen Tran’s enchanting floral designs styled with luxurious linens and lovely place settings made this one incredible Queen’s Table. From sunset to candlelight, this designer dinner party for thirty was the kind of night that dreams are made of.
Thank you to my incredibly talented friends for including me in this very Versailles soiree.
There are so many wonderful occasions in life to celebrate fabulously! I never miss an opportunity to go glamorous..and neither should you!
