On Leap Day we took part in Utterly Engaged’s Design Challenge for their Leap Year Remix Party, which was held at Pandora on Green in Pasadena, California. We teamed up with Amy, of Bride & Bloom Flowers, and Carson & Kathleen, of Itty Bitty Party Committee. The design challenge was sponsored by Shelter Box, who send relief boxes to countries who have suffered from natural disaster. The rules for this year’s design challenge were to create a sweet heart table which blended the cultures of two countries that Shelter Box has helped. Our team chose to do Japan & Turkey…which led to Japurkey!
The sweetheart table is a large focus of any reception. We knew we wanted to use very vibrant jewel-toned colors, but give it a soft whimsical touch to bring the whole look together. We decided to create an intimate table for two inside a soft tent of sheer white curtains. Two vintage suitcases awaited the bride & groom at the end of the table with custom luggage tags that we designed. They were tags with “Destination Japurkey” printed on them. Of course the bride’s suitcase was the bigger one!
We also created delicate name cards for the bride & groom’s place settings. Each plate was set with two pieces of Mochi (a Japanese dessert) & lime green chopsticks. Yummy. A menu card was displayed on the corner of the table.
Our table was published in Utterly Engaged Issue No. 20. Be sure to take a look. We’re already getting excited for next year’s event!
