red roses for christmas : lindsay flanagan photography : holiday party

roses are red... and the only flower we used for this holiday party spectacular!  each season i am honored to plan and design a holiday party for clients in their home surrounded by wonderful friends and family.  the night is special, the mood is joyous and the food... the music... the decor, FAB-U-LOUS.  together we spend the better of 12 months playing with idea's for food, favors, design, music just to name a few elements, and in that one evening it all comes together.  all the images for the evening here are from lindsay,

red roses, silver sequin linen, holiday party

amazing custom silver sequin linen's from table toppers 

sequin linen's sparkled through-out the house.  simple, slim gold faux bois vases filled with red roses added a pop of color to the cocktail tables.

i tend to live by the phrase "less is more"(don't get me wrong... i love beautiful things, just less of the selection and more of the thing i love).  when designing for client's or couple's it's very important to always hear their idea's, as well as their desires regarding their floral decor.  for our client's party, lush-indulgence is always in the under laying theme... how i interpret that idea is what changes every year.  heartfelt donations the "the make a wish foundation" in all their guests names as their favor is one beautiful way our client's interpret indulging... which i soo love!  candles and red roses is just another way i imagine lush :o)  we filled the whole foyer with tall cylinder vases with floating candles... with lush red rose petals everywhere.  it was magic!

no party is complete without a champagne bar that serves only perrier & veuve!

joe fish oysters

yummy!!  flat breads & oysters by joe fish's amazing executive chef, jay duffley were just one of many passed hors d'ourves.  each year jay has a great task of creating a beautiful menu with seasonal fare that i enjoy helping with almost as much as designing the party.

 a very special thank you to all our amazing vendors that make this such a special & intimate evening.  i can't wait to share all the yummy details from this year's party!!  

happily... merrily... joyfully...
