Refined Social Events are known for their trend-setting events, Simply Smitten was no exception. The design team wanted to create a luxurious tropical vibe for this styled shoot. The focus was on clean lines of the glossy leaves as well as layering patterns & textures.
The Intricate Details
By adding rich cobalt blue with modern gold and marble the theme was to emulate a luxury cabana fit for an engagement party. The stunning intricate crockery added delicate details across the tablescape – a fantastic contrast against the leaf patterned table runner. Gold cutlery was the perfect finishing touches to a very instagrammable table setting.
The leaves were the main inspiration. They were suspended from the the walls to create a decorative back drop for the event. Napkins were wrapped with fresh Aspidistra leaves to Galax leaves adorned with calligraphy as name cards. The foliage was not only used for height and colour but to cast interesting shadows in the space from the overhead pinspots.
What they ate
Selmas Catering curated the menu to fit a Caribbean flare including cocktails. The perfect cuisine for an afternoon in the tropics. Canapés were circulated to welcome guests, as well as delicious food stations.
