Fiesta Dinner

Last month we had the pleasure of designing an intimate fiesta dinner at a private residence in Silverlake. Custom papel picado banners mixed with paper lanterns set the stage for an intimate dinner for four. Fresh produce was the decor focal point to bring vibrant color and a lush aesthetic to the setting. For a modern twist, color glassed and a pinstripe runner were set along the center for a bit of contrast. To anchor the table tropical arrangements of palm leaves, protea and spectabilis ginger were loosely arranged and set at either ends of the table. Custom menus with watercolor cacti motifs were set at each place setting with a jalapeño detail picked from the Client’s own garden. Most fun of all, a beverage and snack table was set adjacent to the dinner table to welcome guests with assorted appetizers and obligatory tequila shots!

Wedding Cake Fruit Decor

Since flowers typically make up the bulk of wedding decor, we love the idea of mixing things up with simple fresh produce to accent the wedding cake. A great way to add color and texture, there is something that looks extra yummy about a cake overflowing with fresh fruits and berries.

Artist Spotlight: Irving Penn Food Photography

While American photographer Irving Penn is likely most famous for his fashion photography, his still lifes and food photography are every bit as inspiring and memorable. Among one of the first photographers to set his subjects against stark backgrounds of grey or white, Penn’s modernist still lifes are striking in their simplicity and crispness. Creating carefully styled assemblages of food and objects, Penn explores line, shape, volume and color, turning even the most basic and mundane items into stunning works of art.
