Yesterday Southern Weddings Magazine featured our inspirational photo shoot. See our feature in Southern Weddings Magazine blog Here. The talented Aileen created a spectacular tabletop infused with the colors of desert flowers. She masterfully blended organic elements with touches of lush florals such as Hawaiian dendrobium and phalaenopsis orchids bursting from two trumpet vases. The interesting mix with date palm berries, lilies, and pin cushions created a tantalizing tabletop. I love her color pairing. Here is Aileen’s interpretation of her ‘Desert Oasis tablescape’:
We had this eye-catching apple green linen that I’ve always wanted to use. As soon as I saw pin cushions and kangaroo paws come into season, I saw an opportunity to have some fun with the variety of colors that they come in. My goal was to create a clean yet lush oasis with intriguing additions of eucalyptus pods and succulent blossoms. To give it a modern and textural feel, I used a white quartz runner and wrapped the vases with suede. Copious amounts of floating candles and orchids will give it a fabulous ambiance as the sun sets upon the desert. ~Aileen
Many many thanks to the wonderful Pam Scott for the stunning photographs.
