Inspiration to Creation: Parisian Circus (Pt. 3)

6.25.2010

We have walked you through the design boards, all of the whimsical signage and graphics, the custom ABC circus invitations , and showcased Part I (the Pastel Parisian Patisserie) & Part II (the surrounding decor) of our Parisian Circus Soiree… Today we present the finale!

Lush tabletops of anemones, peonies, and ranunculus, resembling the Parisian gardens of the Champs-Élysees were set atop round ice blue Russian linens with caps emulating couture clown collars.

Black and white canopy striped napkins were layered with blush pink velvet ribbon and the tables were framed with transparent crystal Victoria ghost chairs.

Playing off of the baby ‘shower’, vintage umbrellas and Parisian parasols hovered over tables with strings of dripping crystals that refracted the blue uplighting and resembled raindrops.

A mixologist served sweet tea and strawberry drinks with pink flags that said ‘baby love, ooh my baby love’ from a bar covered with candelabras topped with blushing pink peonies.

Silver elephants balanced upon oversized floral balls white ceramic elephants guarded Evian bottles emblazoned with a Christian Lacroix print that were the guests take home gifts.

The entire evening had that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ that can only be expressed in the French language of love, and guests exclaimed that they felt truly transported to another place!”
