Sneak Peak: Inspiration Wonderlandia

 I previously posted that I was invited to design a wedding tablescape for the Hostess With The Mostess Launch Party that was on Friday Night in San Diego at the Hotel Solomar on the rooftop.
 The only perameters were that it had to be int the theme of Wonderlandia and had to use shade of the colors red, orange, and green with accents of yellow, black or white.
 So I decided to go very bright & cheery with the color scheme using magenta pink, bright orange, bright yellow, and bright green against all white containers including tea pots, tea cups & saucers, and water pitchers.
 La Tavola sponsored the event by letting us use their linens to I chose the Tuscany Limestone for a neutral palette to allow the bright colors to really pop off the table. And I used the Tuscany Crush color for the napkins and chair pads to add a little bit of pop.
 Peony & Plum, my go to florist, took my ideas and inspiration board and once again exceeded my expectations and gave me a lot to work with. And Blue Magpie Invitations made all the paper goodies including the invitation, menu cards, drink me signs & table name.
 We used orange & magenta dahlias, yellow billy balls, green mini hydrangea, magenta garden roses, yellow parrot tulips, orange ranunculus, and green trick carnations (the round balls of what looks like grass).
We also had to use the "Drink Me" from Alice in Wonderland and I went very summery with it giving each table setting an Izze in a color that matched the linen napkin perfectly. I can't wait to show you the images the photographer took, these ones are from my iPhone. : )

LOVE the bold, bright florals you chose! Extra fabulous against all the white!
