Wedding design is a favorite area of interest for us floral & event designers, so our participation in the New York Wedding Event yesterday at the Metropolitan Pavilion became the highlight of a great week. This was our first year participating in the annual bridal show, which showcases the talent of the city’s top florists, caterers, photographers, bridal fashion designers, planners, etc.
The basis of our table design centered around new and vintage tableware, transparent and opaque glass, as well as peach, white & gray color palatte we've been wanting to incorporate into floral design for some time now.The overall table arrangements featured five types of flowers in peach and white. The three handkerchief glass vases – courtesy of Steuben Glass for In Bloom New York – paired beautifully with the vintage, ruffled milk glass containers. We decided on a pure peach arrangement of long-stemmed French tulips and Juliet garden roses for the central arrangement. The medium-size glass handkerchief vase contained white peonies, sweet peas and lisianthus. To the right, a low milk glass hobnail bowl displayed the perfect marriage of peach sweet peas and Juliet garden roses.For the place settings, we used clear glass for chargers and also found vintage milk glass plates on top of which we set fragrant gardenias. We loved the wavy transparency of the Venetian stemware, and found additional cohesion by adding the clear & milk glass candlesticks.Here we are (Roshy Naini and Parker Voss) enjoying our final design before the Pavilion doors opened at 5pm.We always have such a great experience working with New York Weddings, and are grateful for the many new brides, vendors and friends we met last night!
