{Styled Shoot} All that Glitters is Gold by Beautiful Beach Weddings

A few months ago I was speaking with one of my favourite clients Gillian of Crumbs of Comfort about a brief she was working on…Gold and Glamorous, think ‘The Great Gatsby’. So armed with the three G’s…Gold, Glamorous and Garden, this is what we came up with for paper styling.

Each butterfly is made from paper. The symbolistic meaning of the butterfly is new life, new beginning, perfect for the unity of a new life together as husband and wife. They loved the butterflies so much they were used on the cake, the dessert table and the chairs.

We took a different turn with the name place cards, instead creating a scroll to lay across the napkin and further dressed with the butterflies a little piece of whimsy which each guest can take home with them.

The gorgeous feature which unfolded was included in the Spring edition of Queensland Brides Magazine and they loved it so much, they repeated it again on their blog.

Meet the Stylist: Monique from {Darling Details}

I love a clever business name, so when I saw {Darling Details} cross my path, I had to investigate further and I wasn’t disappointed. Monique’s work definitely lives up to her ‘Darling’ Reputation and is just one of the many words I could use to describe her beautiful style.

When Monique sent through her responses, she told me her background was in Corporate Events, Conferences and Tourism. On moving to Adelaide, Monique set up {Darling Details} to full fill the love for creating a space that has Wow Factor (Yes, I can completely relate to this one)! Whilst these days Monique’s work isn’t fuelled by the corporate dream budgets (uh huh, I remember those days too), this certainly shows no boundaries to the  quality and professional execution of Monique’s oh so stylish events.

Describe your style in five words? Unique, fresh, diverse, clean lines, professional.

What has been your favourite theme/event to date? 

To date it would have to be my Great Gatsby inspired dessert table. I loved reading The Great Gatsby as a teenage girl which I know ignited my passion to create unique events for people to enjoy.

I had so much fun creating this table for a wedding expo.  I was inspired by the decadence of the roaring 1920’s so by using black feathers, pearls, lace and mirrors I was able to give the table a nostalgic  feel with a touch of glamour.

Where do you look for inspiration? People, places, fabric, colour, fashion, props, books, interiors, the list could go on.  Seriously, inspiration is around us everywhere we look, it’s how we interpret inspiration that creates style.

Name one of your all time favourite event décor elements? What is that makes this element so fabulous?

Paper! Paper is such a budget friendly resource that can instantly create a look. From gorgeous invitations and printables to paper fans, garlands, backdrops, props and unique DIY’s.  Paper is so versatile you can cut it, roll it, staple it, shape it, colour it, print it, design it. Love paper!

What is your number one piece of advice for planning an event? 

Don’t forget the toolbox! Hehe, I did this once and boy did I regret not having my fishing wire, scissors, 3M hooks etc at my fingertips.  Let’s just say I learnt my lesson the hard way.

Top Wedding Trends of 2013 – Mint

We have recently had a lot of custom requests for mint flavoured paperware…including garlands, notelets and tags…and why not? According to colourwheelpro.com, the colour green symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility: perfect ingredients for a wedding or baby shower.
As such, we recently made and listed in store our mint ombre sweetheart garland and it took off like a rocket, with a treasury within 12 hours on etsy and then this lovely inclusion on the 3D-Memoirs oh so sexy blog…

Look to 3D Memoirs as a source of inspiration and ideas related to beautiful and creative event decor for a variety of events, especially DIY events…and for lots of event styling eye candy…
