La Dolce Vita Blog : Gift Guide

Paloma Contreras' La Dolce Vita blog has been on my daily go to inspiration list for years.  She's a talented interior designer with just perfect taste on all levels.  I pretty much follow her fav lists exactly and refer anyone looking for gift inspiration right to her holiday gift guides.  Every time I think I should expand my wardrobe beyond black and white I'm reminded why I love it. Note #'s 1-4 and 11-14 above!   Here's what I've been craving from this year's "for her" list.

Autumn Literary Gala

I am a big fan of a simple and clean palette and anything with gold and wooden accents so when this event theme evolved into all of the above we enjoyed crafting every minute. Since the building where the event is typically held was under construction we used that as our inspiration and incorporated the actual blueprints into the theme, blueprint blue became the event design base.  Textures and subtle modern pattern were woven throughout and lots of cozy throws were on hand for guests as the night got chilly.  I always enjoy branding an event.  Pillows were made with the event logo, all signage was custom made and waiters wore canvas construction aprons with the event logo embroidered on each one.  Above are some of the getting ready photos that we normally don't even get a chance to take!  Got a few of the team setting up this time.

We carried the blue print theme into custom made wraps for the candles above.  Guests were led into the party by La Vie En Rose and Upbeat Elegant French Jazz Band and settled into play games set at each coffee table.  Just like home at our house!  It was one of the last truly gorgeous evenings of the fall.

Sarah and Evan's Gorgeous Garden Wedding

Photography by: John DeFiora Photography

Sarah and Evan's June wedding was a true collaboration.  We enjoyed every minute from the days and days spent on the hunt for the perfect pinks to the signature drink tastings and tree pruning consults.  A year of fun details all led up to a perfect day at Sarah's childhood home in New Jersey surrounded by her parents fanciful perennial garden, brother Brandon doing the ceremonial honors.  We had an amazing team throughout!  Special thanks to Dahlia Florals for all the extras :-) Gary Giberson at Sustainable Fare, our caterer who almost never does a private event unless it's really special, Sperry Tents New Jersey who stayed on call the whole week, John DeFiora who kept us all laughing and camera ready, Eddie Bruce Orchestra who kept the the dance floor full
 Wildflour Bakery for all the gluten-free treats, Little Black Dress Paperie for every custom piece of paper we dreamed up, Lucid Lens Films, and Cosmo Bleu

Perfume Theme Wedding Shower

Once we got our perfume theme for Sarah's wedding shower it wasn't hard to come up Coco Chanel accessories for the selfie station, a make your own perfume table to create favors for guests to go home with.  We collaborated with @prettyposhdesign for the gorgeous centerpieces. #‎showerthemes‬ ‪#‎newjerseyweddings‬ ‪#‎bridalshower‬‪#‎newjerseyweddingplanner‬ ‪#‎perfumetheme‬ ‪#‎dworkinlove‬ #chanel
