With a name like Lilly Rose, the first thought that comes to mind is flowers. However, this event was a Bat Mitzvah celebration, not a wedding and we wanted a youthful look to the event. Our client was inspired by images from a magazine spread and together we began our design plan by selecting linens and accessories such as elegant chargers, colorful chairs, beaded napkin wraps and hand crafted centerpieces. We decided to go more sophisticated for the adult tables and more playful for the teen tables while keeping Lilly’s favorite colors, pink and orange, in mind. Think Garden Party meets Lorax. For this event, in particular, a lot of intricate detail went into many different aspects of the decorating. Tally will tell you, the handmade paper-flower centerpieces were not easy!
After we had a better understanding of the direction we were going to go in in terms of decor, the next step was to create a custom logo for the event. Heidi made great use of her time at Jury Duty by doodling the day away and coming up with Lilly Rose’s logo. Keeping Lilly’s favorite colors and her name sake flowers in mind, she was able to create a logo that was fun, yet sophisticated.
After the rough sketch of the logo was approved, Heidi and her team completed the logo and began to design personalized paper accents including the menu, place cards and table names. The many items that inspired our decor, can be found on our Pinterest board ‘Garden Party’. In addition, we coordinated with the Four Seasons Baltimore to incorporate Lilly’s logo and theme into different food-and-beverage elements such as drink cards and imprinted cocktail napkins.
The personal touches we added to Lilly’s event made the celebration unique and memorable. There were countless tiny details that added up to create a one of a kind event as distinctive as Lilly Rose. Guests were greeted by a work of art Sign-In Board featuring Lilly painted into Claude Monet’s 1899 work, “The Japanese Bridge”. Once seated, adult guests were welcomed with a menu and an elegant floral beaded napkin ring, while teens had a more playful polka dotted butterfly napkin wrap. These individual details, along with our custom gobo lighting accents, brought energy to the event and Lilly’s theme to life!Silber Photography and Innovative Party Planners Lighting: Excel Lighting Caterer and Venue: Four Seasons Baltimore, Grand Ballroom Flowers: Flowers & Fancies Rentals: Select Events and Party Rental Ltd.
