This year we were given the opportunity to participate in the Inspiration Gallery at the Wonderful Wedding Show. For our table we decided to tie in a subtle ballet theme which we titled “En Pointe”.
We used Planned Perfectly’s tutu linen wrapped around the table and toped in a silver sequin overlay. White chivari chairs were decorated in white ribbon with sprigs of silver babies breath.
McDiarmid Flowers arranged blooms of soft pink and purple ruffled flowers such as peonies, roses, lisianthus, hydrangea, and spray roses in a tall white vase, to create a soft feminine look. The base of the vase was surrounded by smaller arrangements in delicate glass vases. We added in lots of candle light for sparkle and stings of pearls for elegance.
The stationery designed by Robin Egg Blue Design furthered our ballet theme. Individual menus listed the different meal courses as acts, set off by a lovely floral graphic and glitter. All the place cards were names of famous dancers such as Mikhail Baryshnikov.
We had so much fun designing this table, hopefully one day we can design a wedding with a similar feel!

This year for the Wonderful Wedding Show we wanted to create a booth that was inspiring, on trend, cohesive and interactive.
We worked with a colour palette of white and gold, two colours that many of our clients have asked for this year. Planned Perfectly backdroped our booth in gold linen adding in strips of white fabric for extra drama. The tables were dressed in a textured white linen which contrasted nicely against the gold chivari chairs.
For the flowers we wanted something over the top but still classic and traditional. Phalaenopsis orchids worked perfectly for this look, nestled into a base of ivory and very soft pink roses. To incorporate gold McDiarmid Flowers appliquéd the vase with gold fabric (a trick she learnt working with Preston Bailey’s team last spring!). To add an interactive component McDiarmid Flowers designed Two hand held bouquets for future brides to pick up and hold.
One of my favourite parts of our booth were the hanging chandeliers we borrowed from our friends The Christmas Light Guys. They added the perfect amount of elegance and sparkle… and were worth all the effort to hang!
Thanks so much Jeremy Hiebert Photography for taking such pretty photos of our booth.
Thanks to all the vendors who helped pull this look together:
