A Spring Soiree

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

In our opinion, the best kind of celebration is one that kicks off summer! Held at a stunning private residence, this soiree celebrated the end of spring and focused on everything floral.

In the home’s kitchen, Will Gilson of Puritan and Company prepared delicious hors d’oeuvres while guests interacted with the celebrity chef.  Bright, spring florals decorated tables and corners throughout the residence and patio, adding the perfect punch of color to the sleek space.  Guests could enjoy fresh cocktails like Aperol Spritz and Fresh Squeezed Margaritas while lounging on the patio’s soft seating brought in specifically for the celebration!

Once guests had their fill of tasty bites, they were invited outside to enjoy a three course dinner al fresco. The temperature controlled, clear top tent was set atop level oak flooring and accented with overhead twinkling string lights.  Decor within the tent was industrial chic.  Long zinc tables and black wooden cross back chairs at each place setting were complimented by angular glassware and a simple natural hemstitch napkin. Grey tweed runners lined the tables and were topped by stunning white orchids and flickering votives on glass pedestals.  Neutral air plants and micro orchids filled the cubic terrariums.  A top notch dinner of Wagyu beef and scallops tantalized guests’ palettes, before they retreated back into the home for colorful macaroons, coffee, and cordials.  We can’t imagine a more perfect way to say “goodbye” spring and “hello” summer!
