We’re feeling blue — in the best possible way.
This wonderfully moody inspiration from Leslie Dawn Events — and photographed by Kristina Curtis Photography — has us entirely enchanted. From the incredible willow tree backdrop at Sleepy Ridge to a table runner for the stars, these darker tones are a total bright spot. And get excited. This is just the fabulous decor and cuisine of this editorial from our glossy pages! We’ll be sharing a closer look at the fab fashion at a Magazine Monday near you.
Star of the Show Make a statement. Everything here at Sleepy Ridge — from the wowza willow tree to the hanging stars to the fabulous florals — adds to the ambiance.
Love Letters Here’s something to write home about: that gorgeous gold lettering and those big, beautiful blue brush strokes. Divine.
Bright Idea Lanterns for vases? Pretty much the light of our life right now.
Delicious Decor Gorgeous food makes us giddy. These Culinary Crafts greens — with pears and candied walnuts — look almost too pretty to eat. (Almost.)
Name Plate This name card placement — complete with a sprightly sprig — is pure, simple elegance. Leslie Price, of Leslie Dawn Events, knows how to set the table to set the mood.
Sugar + Spice Being consistent with design elements — like carrying over the colors and brush strokes from the paper suite to the cake — ties the tiers of the event together beautifully.
All in the details The cliche bears repeating: The smallest touches make the most powerful impact — whether it’s exquisite sugar flowers or the most divine hair accessory. Our golden rule: Think small to go big.
Sweet Spread Nothing about this table from Culinary Crafts is “just” desserts.
Dessert Menu Petite Lemon Pudding Cakes with Berries; Petite Olive Oil and Wine Cakes with Sugared Violets and Fruit Crystals; Pistachio and Blackberry Macarons; Lavender and Rosemary Shortbread; Bete Noir with Amarina Gelato, Spun Sugar, Berry Coulis and Chocolate Drizzle.
