Bridal Show at the W this Weekend

February 29, 2012



Come see us at the W Hotel on Sunday March 4!


 We will be at the Engaged in Washington Event from 3 – 7 PM.

 Rick has been working with Mariam of the W to create an amazing experience for all attendees.  Along with Jen at SoCo Events and our friends at A Vista Events, Digital Lightning, Party Rental, Nuage Designs, Neiman Marcus and Eli Turner Photography, our team has put together a fabulous look.  In addition, Jen and the Engaged crew have assembled superb vendors to cater to every bride’s needs.

You must check it out – not only is the W Hotel an incredible site, but Rick has gone over the top in his design for this event.  Think mid-century retro like you’ve never seen it before … and think “green” with his recyclable ceremony décor.  We are sure you’ll be wowed!  Be sure to stay for great food, drink and dancing – Mariam has booked a great band for the occasion from FYI Entertainment – sure to get you revved for your big day.

 We look forward to seeing you there!

Modern Dining Combo

February 28, 2012

We are all accustomed to seeing matching chairs around tables but how about mixing them up? Try mixing different chair styles and colors or second hand finds and designs to create a nice dining atmosphere in your house. By picking different types of chairs or stools and benches for a table you will give it a more personal feel and eclectic look.

Scarlet Home Decor

February 14, 2012

Happy Valentine’s Day!

So, of course we can’t let this opportunity to talk about decorating with red slip by
without a mention now, can we?

Whether it’s used to put a room on high alert with a bright shade of scarlet or to envelop visitors with a cozy, warm glow, red is the
color choice if you want to make a statement. Full of power and passion, it’s not a color for the faint of heart, but when thoughtfully used, whether
on a wall or floral accent, it can make a room come alive.

Welcome to Candy Land

February 10, 2012

You don’t have to travel to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory to indulge in delightful treats like cupcakes and chocolate fountains. Just take a trip through the creative minds of team Amaryllis. We turned the W Hotel into Candy Land. Each station was themed around the birthday girl’s favorite sweets. Special thanks to Eli Turner for capturing this sugar filled event.

Valentine’s Day Floral

February 9, 2012
Roses are red, violets are blue, love is in the air and all I can think about is you. The day of love is around the corner, and three things come to mind, chocolate, romance, and flowers. You can’t go wrong with chocolate; you create your own romance. But leave the flowers to the professionals. Here are a few traditional and unique arrangements for that special someone.

“Faberge Egg” Themed Bat Mitzvah

February 7, 2012


 This weekend we teamed up with our friends at Charles Levine Caterers & Events.  We had a marvelous time designing custom made Faberge eggs and topiaries for a lovely Bat Mitzvah in Baltimore.  The girl of honor had the wonderful idea of making donations to the Humane Society in lieu of gifts, so we created a floral poodle for the “gift” table. Check out the before and after pictures below.
