Marvelous Bat & Bar Mitzvah’s

Not only do the details matter on every single wedding big or small but on each event, each celebration, each bat or bar mitzvah these details are what make the space and design come together as a whole. Each light, wire, ribbon, crystal and each petal.. they all hold a critical role in creating and recreating spaces, transforming these unique spaces into a themed event. These bat and bar mitzvahs below were held at E Lounge in Cherry Hill, The National Museum of American Jewish History and The Franklin Institute respectively.


Creativity unleashes and these events unfold to a new level. As our pictures show just a taste of what our team can create.. creativity is endless.  Often working with many props.. flowers find a fun way to be incorporated. Linens, lighting and lounge furniture are crucial to creating an ambiance.


Whether crystals and glam or science and baseball, each party is unique and amazing.


Are you planning a bat or bar mitzvah in or around Philadelphia? Call or email us today! We would love to meet with you and your daughter or son in our studio. Let the fun begin with us and your decor! 

Because We Love Texture!

Tis’ the season! As we gear up for an exciting and busy time in our studio we are receiving local, fresh product that we just can’t get enough of! The colors seem brighter, the textures more ruffled, the stems longer.. Oh how we love Spring time! We’re playing around with our studio camera.. so bear us. But seriously the detail and clarity..

 

A Center City Celebration

Center City District has celebrated 25 years of holding this annual fundraiser. On May 5th, Center City District held their fundraising event at City Hall, Dilworth Plaza.

Center City District initiates programs to help improve the quality of life, competitiveness and prosperity of Center City Philadelphia. With the introduction and launch of Center City District Foundation, they are seeking to enhance public spaces and create signature parks while improving the existing Center City District managed parks. This foundation provides a range of job opportunities and focuses on professionalism and building success for the CCD. This event is also highlighting the 60th Anniversary of the Central Philadelphia Development Corporation. What a party!!

We were so pleased to be able to be a part of this event.. 80 centerpieces? No problem! Our decor brought color and texture to these tables. Accented with pink, green, blue and purple chiavari chairs and crisp white, textured linens for Gala Cloths, these tables came to life!

Our studio is located in Center City.. just steps away from Dilworth Plaza. We love our city of brotherly love and all our community has to offer. Often purchasing locally grown blooms, we were ecstatic to help support Center City District for this event.

This event was catered by Brulee who kept in theme of bringing bright pops of color to their plates. Philip Gabriel Photography captured the unique glow and ambiance of this event. We can’t get enough of his shots! The angles, the colors, the lighting.. He must have had a blast behind that lens!

Supporting our city is what it’s all about. Using local vendors and product can help our community prosper and grow. In the words of Mother Teresa; “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”

The Logan Engagement

Last week we received a phone call from a gentleman who uses our services often. He wanted to really impress and blow away a special person. He requested we fill his suite at newly renovated The Logan Hotel in Philadelphia, with fresh flowers, bouquets, petals and votives.

Adrienne over at The Logan Hotel was nice enough to take her time and show me the space of which we were working with. The plan; cover every flat area with flowers!! Five minutes of her time and I was able to snap some photos for visual inspiration. The ideas took off as we carefully planned arrangements full of lush floral including roses, hydrangea, orchids, ranunculus, dusty miller, oh my!!

I inquired on the occasion and he assured me, “it could be an occasion.” It sure was, as we learned after his stay that she said YES! He personally called to thank our team and to let us know the fabulous news. We’ve been part of their love story  so far and we hope we can be part of the next chapters’ to come! Congratulations again!
