Woodland Forest Table with Francoise Weeks +
KT Merry for Flutter Magazine Issue 6

June 25


Also in the current issue of Flutter is this woodland tabletop I styled with the work of the amazing floral designer Francoise Weeks as part of Florabundance‘s design days. Shot in the incredible fern garden at Lotusland, I knew the second I say this enormous stag fern that this would be the perfect for Francoise‘s woodland inspired arrangements. I styled the table with simple taupe linen from Porch, driftwood benches from Elan Event Rentals, and teak chargers also from Elan. Valerie Rice of Eat Drink Garden made a simple pea salad, crostini, and cumquat drink to compliment the table design. In lieu of a traditional printed menu, Rebekah Miles painted on oversized tropical leaves. I love how this table turned out. And you can check out the full spread in Flutter Mag issue 6.

How stunning and unique are these peacock blue shoes with purple suede accent? These were a part of the limited edition Jimmy Choo “Icon” collection, and I can see why.

Editorial: Old World Elegance Wedding Ideas

January 28

I’m absolutely smitten with this old world elegance editorial photographed by KT Merry and styled by Style Serendipity and shot on location in Ireland. How awesome are these Irish wolfhounds with their garland collars?

Castle Leslie is a fully functioning hotel and wedding location. I would seriously die and go to heaven if I got to a design a wedding here.

In keeping with the old world vibe, invitations were printed on pretty handkerchiefs, crown book marks served as favors, and lace up shoes from BHLDN captured the timeless feel.

A delicately beaded Jenny Packman gown added to the elegant feel…

Soft blooms such as peonies, roses, veronica, and astilbe made up the bride’s bouquet.

An elegant scroll nailed to an ivy covered tree serves as seating chart.

The ivy covered walls of the castle makes a beautiful background for the dinner table draped with a garland over lace and accented with velvet details.

Thanks KT for sharing this beautiful editorial!
