When Cindy Celis of Luxe Linens asked me to create a holiday table for her Beverly Hills Showroom, I knew I wanted to create something festive, dramatic and fit for a king and queen. Well I am British so I knew I had to add the dramatic flair to the table. There are so many choices for gorgeous linens at Luxe and so many different ways to go to create opulence and glamorous.
We chose the red velvet Giana linen and gold napkins to bring in the holiday glam. I had chosen the Giana for a wedding recently and fell in love so I was delighted to create around this stunning linen.
Borrowed Blu provided all the chargers, china, flatware and glassware. I chose elegance in picking out each item to design the table. I wanted opulence and beauty with every item.
Butterfly Florals provided the perfect holiday centerpieces and gold candlesticks with red tapered candles. Butterfly knows how much I love her drama when it comes to design so I did not have to tell her what to design except I was going with red and gold and she worked her magic.
Copper Willows designed the menus and escort cards. Jill Velez always knocks it out of the park when it comes to calligraphy.
Of course every elegant holiday table has to have the most elegant of crystal to drink the finest wines and champagne. Borrowed Blu has such an inventory of the best glassware, and I chose the perfect stemware to go with the table.
Thank you to all the vendors that provided the best of everything in creating Holiday Splendor. And especially thank you to Loreen Sarkis of http://www.sarkisphotography.com for capturing my vision.
