Burlesque Birthday

Today we bring you a whole lot of pink. No, not baby pink, sugary pink or cotton candy pink...none of that sweet stuff. We're talking bright, hot, shocking pink! 

Fuchsia...magenta....whatever you want to call it, it is quite a color. Mix it with sleek black and it's downright sexy. Add a pinch of black lace, a handful of glittering crystals, a truckload of ostrich feathers, strings of pretty pearls, and while you're at it, a couple of corseted courtesans, and you've got a birthday party that will please even the most stiff-lipped of guests. 

Burlesque is clearly having a moment, and we couldn't help but seize it. 
Boy, was this was one heck of a birthday party!







Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween to all of our readers! Today we bring you some fabulous ideas for non-traditional, elegant Halloween decor! Let's get started...

First off, it's not Halloween without pumpkins! We love using them all season long, mixed with rose hips, fall foliage and seasonal flowers. Candlelight is an absolute must for creating the right ambiance, so we used lots of votives and rusted bronze candelabras for this pretty autumnal table scape.




 ......

Next we have a gorgeous table using red flowers, crystal candelabras and juicy, blood-red fruit.






 Can't you see some seriously chic vampires feasting at this table? Probably not on the fruit, though....

This next series of images was taken at a private dinner in an ancient deconsecrated Tuscan church...using the original altar and pews as the table and seating....super spooky!

Add tons of candles, burgundy clematis trailing over everything like overgrown vines and juicy red pomegranates and you've got yourself a very "seance-ready" atmosphere!






......

Finally, a stunning table inspired by Miss Havisham, the wealthy spinster in Charles Dickens' Great Expectations. The bride had a very clear idea of the decor for her wedding, describing her vision as "a table that has been there for 100 years" and specifically citing the heiress' decaying mansion as inspiration.

This was not a "Halloween" wedding exactly, but the idea could certainly be used as a gorgeously ghostly banquette, don't you think? Especially with the touches of deep, blood red...









Have a frightfully fun Halloween everyone and stay safe!

Country Chic

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!
