Hospitality for Growing...

At the Embassy Suites Hotel - Perimeter of Atlanta, a most inviting and spectacular hospitality suite for "Grow with Zo" was decorated by a group of the Bat Mitzvah girl's mom's friends! Everyone needs friends like these! The suite decor included everything the mom and Bat Mitzvah girl would have provided if they themselves had created the decor and amenities!

Check out the rustic modern ambiance that was the decor theme of the weekend of celebrations!

See the cute pictures of Zoe growing up hanging on the tree!

An amazing artist, Kim Nicholson, created a banner that fit the room perfectly.
The room's candy bar featured candy representing the perfect color palette selected for the weekend's events!

Check out a close-up photo of the candy bar!

A fresh fruit snack was provided! Check out all of the perfect touches on each crate!

An additional personalized detail was that every one who came to the hospitality suite had an opportunity to take photos of the weekend so that
memories could be enjoyed after the celebrations were over.

This family is lucky to have such amazing friends!

Rustic Modern Flare at CBT!

A Bat Mitzvah was celebrated with a color theme inspired by and borrowed from Anthropologie. Mom, a creative "repurposer" and "recycler" even planned "girl parties" the year preceding the event where some of the decorations for the Bat Mitzvah celebration were made. Trees that were cut down in the neighborhood, as well as poster boards, and painted plastic water bottles were given a new purpose as centerpieces and flowers. A vibrant color theme with an earthy, rustic style delighted the Bat Mitzvah girl, her family and guests. Mom worked closely with us on all the details!

From the colorful cutlery, to the kippot, to the tablecloths - everything  matched.

Artfully arranged, colorful kippot await the guests!

For the Shabbat dinner decor, check out how the Bat Mitzvah girl and her mom's involvement showcased their creative talents with the white painted stems from cut-down trees and delicate flowers made from recycled plastic bottles! The Bat Mitzvah decor featured a great way to reuse things.

 Check out the picture below to see the water bottle flower centerpieces up close.

A very good friend of the family catered delicious food  for the celebration events held at CBT throughout the Bat Mitzvah weekend! 

Check out the flowers that flanked both sides of the bimah! Made out of ripped poster board, the flowers gave the room a festive feeling and popped with color!

Check out the close up photo of the flowers! It is amazing what a little imagination can create!

Check out the green flowers found in the photos below! They circled the shulchan table in the middle of the sanctuary giving the planters a decorative touch!

Beach Club Wedding

At the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club a friend from high school was married!
The beach setting offered an incredible rustic, nautical ambiance and theme!
Although my business Bluming Creativity, did not plan this wedding, I attended as a guest and enjoyed the festivities, details, and decor so much I want my blog followers and future event clients to get inspired by my photos and memories of a truly beautiful wedding!

To locate the guests' places at tables for the wedding meal, a nautical, beach-themed list provided the information! The beach club ambiance permeated every decor detail!

Wedding Overlooking Water in Florida!

At the Grove Isle Hotel and Spa in Coconut Grove

My mom and dad attended an amazing wedding in Miami, Florida. Although I did not plan or have anything to do with this event, I offer some highlights as inspiration to my blog followers and potential clients. We all learn from each other with shared ideas.

Check out the photo of the signs that the ring bearers carried as they walked down the aisle preceding the bride. The bride's Korean background encouraged me to check out Korean wedding customs because I thought that perhaps the ring bearer signs are traditional in Korean weddings. Although not a Korean wedding ritual, what a cute added touch to the bride's traditional entrance!

Featured in the photo found below is a mirror more than 4 feet tall. The guests and family names and reserved table numbers were written in pen for a seating chart on the mirror. Lanterns placed on the table illuminated the area.

With only railing and dividers separating wedding family and guests from the water, warm breezes brought the fragrance of the ocean that permeated the area where the reception was held. Check out the flower arrangements and elegant table settings that enhanced the sea-side decorated ambiance!

Multiple exotic flowers and plants grouped together make up the table centerpieces!

Twinkling candles, raffia chargers, rectangular and round tables beckoned the wedding guests and family to the reception celebrating the marriage of loved ones!

An exquisite, yet simple addition of flowing fabric added to the magical, sea-side ambiance in the wedding reception area!

With a view of a sailboat, the ocean waves gently flowing and the colors of sunset, the wedding cake display table is perfectly positioned. The wedding cake with green leaf garnish and the bride's orchid bouquet in front is further proof of attention to every detail that the Grove Isle Hotel and Spa provided for this wedding celebration.
