Happy Diwali

Diwali- A Festival of Lights!
Today we have on our blog Nathan to talk 
about one of the most cherished festivals in India. 

I come from a land with diverse culture, religion, languages, food, 
race and I am so Thankful for everything my culture has taught me. 
On the other side of the world at this very moment all my friends, 
family and relatives are celebrating the festival of lights-Diwali. 
Diwali is the triumph of good over evil. 
Family friends gather together to celebrate this 
joyous occasion by lighting lamps. 
Every single house has lamps lit and set of fireworks. 
When I was a kid my cousins would come over and we would play 
with fireworks all night long! Of course under adult supervision. 
When we get tired we would nibble on 
sweets ( good sugar rush to keep us going). 
We would play for 2 nights and its one festival we have a 
lot of fun. (2nd to Christmas....LOL)
A perfect way to put it is......Its Christmas with fireworks!!!
Since I cannot play with fireworks here I lit candles at ArtQuest 
and made a table top to reminisce my childhood.
I used pink linens which we call "Rani Pink" with 
Green Cymbediums, Yellow and Purple Calla lilies.

Angelica and Benjamin's Wedding!

This was a wedding that we designed for the 
wonderful couple with vibrant and rich fall colors.
Angelica's bouquet was full with orange roses, 
orange mokara orchids, and deep red roses embellished 
with jewels and black feathers. 
The vibrant fall colors resonated throughout the wedding. 
We had a wonderful time and we wish 
the wonderful couple an amazing life together.

Fashionable Witch

Of course costume, make up and creativity is 
what we look for at Halloween. 
So here we were inspired by WITCHES! 
This attire was put together with just two 
6 foot table linen and couple of pins. 
Paired with some red hot or hot pink shoes 
anyone would look awesome. 
Instead of going all black we tried to soften the look 
with soft pink roses and white phaleonopsis orchids. 
A simple table for your guest! 

And this is for you my Friend "Danny". 
I could style you in this attire or 
make you a look like an Indian Prince...
Hurry up and let me know ... Lots of Love.:-)

LeeAnn & Raymund's Wedding

This Blush Pink wedding of LeAnn and Raymund makes 
me want to incorporate all the blush tones more and more. 
LeeAnn carried a bouquet with blush pink roses, soft pink cymbediums, 
stephanotis and embellished with a broach. 
The Ceremony and Reception was at the Four Points by Sheraton 
and they exchanged vows under the gazebo draped with 
white fabric and lush white phaleonopsis orchids, 
blush pink roses, white hydrangea. The reception had a combination 
of centerpieces, tall centerpieces with blush pink roses, 
white hydrangea and hanging leis while the 
other tables had floating orchids and candles.
The Cake Riser was custom made with sheets of Bling. 
Amy Vargas from First Comes Love planned the wedding beautifully.

The scripps seaside forum is a beautiful location for weddings
with the ocean as the background, the beach,

Wedding on the Renown Hornblower

This was a simple wedding over the hornblower 
with the rich tones of purple and white. 
For the bouquet we used purple vanda orchids, 
stephanotis, white roses wrapped with a frilly ribbon 
and embellished with a beautiful broach . 
The ceremony was on the deck with purple lizianthus, lavender roses, 
white hydrangeas, and lavender fabric blowing with the wind. 
The reception had the similar concept on the boat 
with purple lizianthus, lavender roses, white hydrangeas. 
The hornblower is always a wonderful choice 
be it a wedding or just a fun party.
