The Knot Party

We were honored to be selected to provide the decor for the Knot Vendor appreciation party held at the Pierhouse, Long Branch.

The theme was Mediterranean Elegance. Using blue and white to mimic the sea, columns draped with dendrobium orchid chains rose up from the table sheltering our sea goddess. White hydrangeas spilled out of large shells and accents of moss balls and sea glass added to the decor. Low centerpieces of blue hydrangeas in white urns and blue hydrangeas with sea grass and shell balls were placed on the cocktail tables that faced the ocean. A lounge area was created, blue and white lanterns hung by the window and fish in glass cylinders added more fun!

Our work is featured in the Knot New Jersey Magazine for spring and fall 2008. See our press page for more pictures and details.

Meeting Preston Bailey

We had the wonderful opportunity to not only meet Preston Bailey but also take a workshop with him! Jill and I flew out to Louisville, Kentucky and attended 2 full days of workshops on creative planning for weddings and special events. Preston was the guest speaker, we were very inspired! Preston Bailey has designed the most incredible weddings for Joan River's daughter, Donald Trump, Matt Lauer, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas! We had the chance to get a picture with him; he is so very nice and so accommodating!

To top it all off, he signed our copy of his book, Fantasy Weddings!
Love his work and will see him any chance we get!
