From Inspiration to Reality: The Board
March 17, 2010

You guys are going to DIE when you see today's From Inspiration to Reality feature. I was literally speechless when I discovered what the incredible team led by Viola at chewing the cud, along with Atelier Joya Event Design and Flora, Stacy McCain Event Planning, Photography by Blonde Tulip and the most insane fashions by Amy Kuschel and KAutum (full vendor list below) did exclusively for your viewing and devouring pleasure. But before we get to the design, here is the board that Annie designed that inspired it all!

Black and White Christmas

This board caught our eye because of its unique and dramatic contrast. In one breath there is the whimsy created by soft layers of tulle in the wedding dress and the full, lush floral arrangements. In a second breath, there is a strong graphic element shown by the sleek silhouettes displayed on the plates and the cake. We thought it’d be fun to play with these stark contrasts and create an event on the interplay of these elements.
