Buongiorno! Today we have a group of events in prestigious locations around Florence and Venice.
All of the decor works beautifully to highlight the characteristics of each location, like the black and white marble windows of a Renaissance landmark reflected in the striped table linens, or the colors of the gorgeous frescoes echoed in the flowers. Chic lamps offer a modern twist, providing light in a space that restricts the use of candles, so as to not damage the priceless artwork. Olive trees fill a raw, brick-covered space, while sunset colored ranunculus and fresh herbs create a sense of warmth and the promise of spring.
Turning the tables on traditional art theory, where nature inspires art and architecture, this time it's architecture that inspires!
This next wedding is country-chic at its absolute best- pretty, intimate and relaxed. The location was Villa Pipistrelli in Montestigliano, near Siena. They wanted the style to be very natural, as if they had made the decorations from their own home and garden. Take a look...
Gorgeous, right? Make sure to click on the photo for a larger image and feel free to leave us your comments!
Ciao for now!
Buongiorno a tutti!
Apologies for not updating the blog in a timely fashion but we have been busy busy busy with all kinds of weddings and events! We would love to share a few highlights from the last few weeks that we think you all might enjoy, so have a look...
First up is a late-spring party in the pool area and garden of the Four Seasons Florence. We used english roses, bleeding hearts and sweet peas in lovely, cheerful pinks. The mint green pots added a splash of color and fresh touch. Our white lanterns surrounded the area and lit up the edge of the gorgeous pool.
Another event, again at the Four Seasons - a country-chic style welcome dinner. Using aromatic herbs, olive trees, seasonal fruit and tones of soft purples and lavenders, the decor was intimate, casual but elegant, and enhanced the Tuscan feel of the area.
Next up in a bit, a handful of chic weddings at a popular castle location overlooking Florence...
On March 27, 2012, we were invited by the house of Salvatore Ferragamo to create the floral decorations for a day of events at the Musee du Louvre in Paris. The famous Florentine company best known for their handcrafted leather shoes and bags (Mr. Ferragamo himself was the creator of many iconic shoes, including Dorothy's ruby slippers in the classic 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz"), is the sole sponsor of the new exhibition at the museum of Leonardo DaVinci's newly restored work "Saint Anne", which was the last painting he had completed. You can read more about the event and the painting here: The NYTimes | Ferragamo at the Louvre.
The luncheon at Café Richelieu.
We used a mix of pastel-colored spring flowers, adding warmth to the gorgeously dark, moody surroundings.
The gala dinner at the Café Mollien was decorated with vases of "Ferragamo Red" spring flowers and modern crystal accessories, bringing a bit of Italian-Chic to the historic French ambience.
The Tuscany Flowers van parked in the most elusive spot in the world!
One of many newspaper articles about the event.
See you again soon for another chic event!
