New Blog Series~ Haute Design Inspiration~ Orange County Wedding Coordinator and Designer

Haute Design Inspiration

A Good Affair is not only passionate about planning impeccable weddings but we LOVE creating fabulous design for all of our client’s events! In the spirit of this passion we are launching a new series on the blog all about just that- Haute Design Inspiration.

To kick this off we want to share one of the hottest trends for 2011~ Metallics! Everything looks good in metallics: cars, shoes, purses, dresses, the list goes on. So what better than a wedding to use this regal palette. You might not think that you can mix metallics but if done the right way it is very chic. So often brides and grooms pick silver or gold as an accent for color palette but why not mix them together or add pewter, copper, ect. to it.

We enjoyed the Wedding Luncheon at The Special Event Show in Phoenix at the beginning of the year. The theme was In Love With Metallics. We want to share them with you to help you visualize this awesome trend and get inspired.

Take a look:

Every row of tables was designed with a different metallic palette- this would be awesome for your event to create a different feel throughout the reception and keep you away from the “uniform” look.

To further the look- use different arrangements on the tables- for larger weddings you could have 3 or 4 looks that you repeat throughout the room. You can take it a step further and use different china and silver with each “look” too (FYI- this will require a large budget).

Bronze Beauty

And the always Fabulous Silver.


Here are a couple amazing floral design shots for some inspiration for any event! I just love these vases that the florists used- I actually have a white quilted vase like the ones above and I get a ton of compliments on it.


We hope that you enjoy this inspiration- stay tuned for more to come on our exciting new series, enjoy!
