Pink & Gold Dinner Party + Get The Look
May 7, 2014
If I'm ever in need of a pick me up of the pretty variety, I know I can count on Anouschka Rokebrand and Avenue Lifestyle. And though everything they touch is absolutely lovely, I have to admit they've outdone themselves on this one. I'm now, more than ever, inspired to host an elegant dinner party, dripping in pinks and golds. And if it's half as lovely as the gallery, I'll consider it a massive success!

From Holly, the stylist... When Anouschka asked me to style a table for her first ever photography workshop, I instantly knew which direction we would be going for: feminine, fresh and timeless with a touch of glam - the very look that Anouschka so beautifully embodies as a pro wedding photographer. I began with choosing a colour palette of blush pink, creams, deep berry tones and a hint of brassy gold.

For her workshop, she teamed up with several fantastic vendors, many of which provided the pretties I would be working with on the day. Lucky Penny Paperie sent over the most gorgeous stationary, Helene Millot Furnishings provided the tableware {was I in heaven sorting through her collections and selecting which items I'd be using for the workshops!}, Don Florito florists created the florals and Sugarlips Cakes provided a picture perfect cake. I wanted to create a look that seamlessly and stylishly weaved all these elements together on one beautiful table.

I wanted the overall look to be glam without being over the top, so had two loosely arranged, whimsical floral centerpieces made, beside which clusters of antique brass candlesticks with delicate stems added a touch of drama. Natural elements were subtly thrown in to keep the look casually elegant. I created personal honeypot favors for each setting (I loved that the miniature jars came with a brass colored lid!) finishing them off with a piece of blush colored ribbon and twine. Balancing on the rim of each champagne glass was a blueberry and blackberry skewer. With soft blush and cream tones as the base palette, I thought some deep blackberry tones would kick the look up a notch, while elements of gold will infuse that glam look that I know Anouschka loves. I had such fun creating this inspirational bridal table, not to mention seeing all those talented photographers devour it with their lenses!

From Anouschka, the photographer... When I started planning this shoot for our workshop I knew instantly I wanted Holly to style it for us. She gets what I want in a heartbeat! I created a moodboard for her and I'm absolutely blown away by how she translated my wishes into reality.

We had an amazing team of vendors on board and each of them did such a terrific job! I love the tones in this shoot which match our branding and style perfectly.
