The Individualist Bride: Reception Ideas
The true individualist will go out of her way to create a wedding that bears her own unique signature. For her bouquet, tulips in a deep shade of coral pink are wrapped tightly with chiffon, then punctuated with intense chartreuse button mums. A mother-of-pearl cuff accents the pink tones and adds the perfect unexpected touch. The color palette is repeated in an invitation by Saima Says Design and wrapped neatly with a striking black ribbon that lends a crisp, modern finish.
This bride’s sometimes capricious, yet sophisticated sense of style compels her to find just the right favor for her guests. Chocolates are far too commonplace for the individualist—caviar in tins that reflect her color scheme are more in line with her sensibilities. The adorable little mother-of-pearl spoon in a velvet pouch will make tasting the Swanson Vineyards Farmed California Osetra a pleasure.
Kate Spade’s Library Lane china is the finishing touch for this place setting. Silver edging and rich coral stripes offer an artist’s touch that appeals to this extraordinary bride.
A Fanciful Display of Cupcakes is a grand finale for the individualist, who wants her cake to taste as good as it looks. A mix of decadent chocolate with white chocolate raspberry buttercream icing literally melts in your mouth. Carmen Emerson-Bass decorated each cupcake with whimsical fondant circles in pink and green in keeping with the original color scheme. The unique display is decorated with pretty papers cut in circles to mimic the cupcake tops. The unexpected tower of confections will undoubtedly be a focal point at the reception, and guests will appreciate the opportunity to indulge at will.
