My goal with the Perfect Guest Shoot was to inspire fabulous event style no matter the type of party or the location. Taking cues from the attire and venues, I designed 3 very distinct celebrations that are full of beautiful but easy to adapt details.
Resort chic style is casual and breezy, but plenty chic.
Wet at W Atlanta – Midtown is a rooftop pool with views of the Atlanta skyline, private cabanas and chaise lounges. Being inspired by the outdoors and clear blue pool, I designed this space using greens, whites, and golds with pops of blues.
We continued the party into the Living Room Forbidden Garden where the luxe space seamlessly transitions from inside to the patio with a unique wrap around bar.
We created a backdrop using white and gold balloons with Monestera leaves for guests to snap photos in between fresh cocktails and delicious light fare.
This resort chic party would be perfect for an afternoon with friends that’s equal parts swank and relaxing.
Girls Night Cocktail Party
There’s nothing like a night out with your girls, dressed up with your favorite pair of heels. I wanted to design the ultimate girls night cocktail party with exciting colors, plenty of pattern, and unique accessories.
The magical ambiance of the W Atlanta Living Room gave us the perfect bohemian setting. Plush velvet seating in an intimate setting surrounded by collections of art, animals, and books gave plenty of eye candy.
My favorite element was the Hidden Lounge where we created a vibrant balloon display in shades of pink with pops of gold. I love creating surprises for guests at our events which make for unforgettable memories.
A Black Tie event always means the ultimate level of sophistication. The Overlook Foyer with W Atlanta Midtown’s statement gold cages as a backdrop created a whole mood for our tablescape.
We designed a dramatic estate table with a luxe black lace linen, ivory gold rim chargers, and lush white flowers. Deep shades of emerald extended from the table to our stunning guest in a couture Charbel Zoe Couture from Elite Pour La Vie.
Black Tie is usually reserved for special occasions but it’s nice to have a reason to go all out every once in awhile.
