{ Jasmine & Thibault } A winter wedding in Venice

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Hello lovelies!

This is my first post as a mum. It took me quite a while to get back on track…so many things to do…but today I’m here with a little wedding that we organised last winter…stunning colours and flowers! Enjoy the view of these photos by Peggy Pigot at Maison Pestea and stay tuned, another one will be live soon!

Jasmine and Thibault got married in Venice last December in a foggy and romantic day.
We helped them with the planning of the full wedding, including their civil ceremony at Palazzo Cavalli, and it was a great feast of joy, love and colours!

Jasmine chose a red, pink, purple and gold palette for her baroque-vintage wedding. This was applied to all the decorations from the seasonal flowers of her bouquet, which stood up against her dark brown fur, to the stationery, chairs and pom poms at the venue.

Originally from Bordeaux, they chose Venice because they wanted to have a ‘different’ wedding – four days to spend with their family and closest friends in a beautiful setting. So when they found that there was a direct flight from Bordeaux to Venice they thought it was the right place for them…so after four months of preparation, a lot of calls and a taste dinner delivered to Bordeaux by courrier they got married!

The hardest part for us? It was to find their dinner glasses..Jasmine didn’t want standard glasses but some old looking decorated china glasses that we eventually ordered from France after a very long research! All fun!!

Sabine & Dieter: An Intimate Autumn Wedding in Venice

Thursday, November 14th, 2013

Hello girls!

I hope you are doing well!
We are nearly at the end of the wedding season…then a bit of rest for both me and Sylvie. The past ones have been really busy months with the wedding affairs and, for myself, with my private life getting ready to become a mum! My bump is growing quite quickly and we will soon have a little girl (provisionally called “Cocca”) screaming and keeping us asleep!

A part from this, today I would like to share some photos of this intimate Austrian wedding in Venice that we did a few weeks ago. I love the warm brown, cream and gold colours which make this wedding a real Autumnal feast!

We had a lot of fun working with Sabine and Dieter and organise their civil wedding in Venice in less that two months!

Thank you Serena and Francesco at Wedding City for sharing these romantic photos!

Spring red & white wedding in Padua

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Hi ladies,

You can tell we have not disappeared! We have been simply surrounded by lovely couples lately! A lot of love, great fun…and work!

This is one the spring weddings we organised in Veneto, more precisely in Padua…red and white details everywhere for Stephanie and Aldric who were looking for a countryside wedding in Italy.

They contacted us because they wanted a full wedding package which also included the floral design. We came up with the idea of using red carnation and a little touch of roses for the bride’s bouquet which had a nice ruffled pom pom shape – this is a very unusual flower to use for wedding bouquets in Italy, but it perfectly matched the theme of the deco inspired by paper pom poms and lanterns.

We also arranged a little welcome table with simple white hydrangeas in water bottles covered with lace. We use the welcome table against an old decadent water coloured wall which became a sort of table plan with stationery and a few pom poms around…

Finally a few details of the ceremony area, where we used again simple little vases with sprigs of hydrangea…
For the tables we thought to work using the same two types of flowers (carnations and hydrange) and play with different shapes of containers such as candy bowls, cake trays and bell jars in different sizes…

Vitage bronze colour stationery and wild flowers

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Hellooo everyone!

How are you doing today?
I’ve been thinking what to show you for this month’s new feature “Our creations” and then I decided to use some photos that some of you probably have already seen in a few blogs now.

This is one of the most amazing weddings we have ever organised! A wonderful couple who was a please to work with and a great wedding party full of emotions and history.
We were so lucky to contribute in the design and decoration of the wedding theme.

The bride wanted a vintage theme (my eyes were sparkling when I knew that!) which also put together the element of the journey (which was both their journey from Australia to Italy, but also the journey of discovery of their past – their family roots are Italian).
We also wanted to incorporate the colours of the bride’s dress and shoes which were bronze and gold…and then we thought a touch of black would have given a nice contrasting effect…this is the result…

We selected some nice vintage fonts for the menu, as well as some ’20s inspired frames to decorate the top and the bottom of it. To make it more personalised we also added an old little map of Italy (very old since the Trentino Alto Adige region was still part of the Austrian empire!!) and some handmade airplanes made by Engelise at Almost Amsterdam!

These are some pics of the flower arrangements for the tables together with the table numbers which were in line with the rest of the stationery.

A county fair theme birthday party in Veneto

Friday, January 18th, 2013

Hello ladies,

How are you today?

We’ve got something really nice for you this morning, some inspiration ideas that move away from the crazy weddings world to jump back to our children young ages… our birthday parties…

A few months ago, I got the chance to meet Laura who was looking for some great inspiration for her son Giulio’s 5th birthday party! Her main words: LOTS OF COLOURS! A nice location with a great garden in the Veneto countryside, outside games, nice accessories, gifts for the kids…easy peasy!

I naturally thought of a county fair birthday theme, in a red and blue colour scheme, with the vintage touch we like. We organized the party in this beautiful countryside location not far from Pordenone on a sunny Sunday afternoon…

The great success of the day!? My red and blue candy floss machine! All kids simply loved it!!!

Here you are with a few shots of the candy bar we created for Giulio as well as a few pics of the party set up! Thanks to Sara Scian for the yummy and beautiful cake!

Enjoy!

Red and white breakfast…

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Hi ladies,

How are you all doing?
The weather is so lovely which I hope you have plenty of things planned to enjoy the sun! We are planning to go to Cambridge tomorrow, so I hope the sunshine will resist for another day.
Yesterday I went to the presentation of a new Christmas flower collection and they gave me some “left overs” which I thought to use to create a little centrepiece for the lounge table…I bought some extra white carnations and some red roses and here you go…this is the result…a nice colourful table for this morning breakfast (I’ve also cooked some eggs and bacon!).
what do you think?
I love the little bowls – I bought them in a vintage shop in London last week end and they are by Green Gate Copenaghen.

DIY polka red tags…

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Hi girls,

Thanks God it’s Friday! Relax finally after a week I spent mostly in Venice to meet with lovey brides and grooms to be!
Here I am with part II of my Troussepinette polka dot red theme christening! Remember I used a both funny and elegant scrapbooking paper from Karen Marie Klip Design to realize my paper origami windmills?

Since there was a lot of paper left after I used it for my windmills baptism invitations, and red polka dots baptism party decoration you’ll see pretty soon, well I used it as well to make the tags I would have used on the sweet and candy bar I was preparing…

Madeleines, Macarons, Maya, Merci,… So many “M” in here! Here you are with my baptism polka dots tags…. What do you reckon?

DIY polka dots christening invitations

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Hi girls,

Maya’s christening is now over! I can’t even say how much I’ve worked over the past weeks! Feel some kind of exausted really, and guesss I need a rest…

But well, I spent such a good time preparing and organizing every little detail of the red and white theme christening decorations I wanted to give her!

Everything started when I came across WOP photographies website last year! I’m a regular visitor of their blog, and I was simply fascinated when I read through the few posts written by Stephanie regarding her daughter’s christening

Here I am today with my red and white invitations liberally inspired from WOP… Enjoy!

I love the windmills! I guess it recalls somehow the shape of a modern cross! It’s some kind of less official, but doesn’t loose any meaning to the real sense of the christening really…

Keep tuned, as the second part is about to come…

Vintage tins for diy centrepiece ideas

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Hi girls,
The week end is almost over and I have to say that it was a creative one for me!
I’m trying to come up with some nice ideas for a wedding theme in the colours of turquoise and pink…not an easy one! So I decided to use a wonderful tea tin I found in a Christmas hamper last year, which is dedicated to the Queen’s Jubilee and has got a lot of turquoise…
So I went to a florist shop with my little tin and I asked her for some suggestions on which flowers I should use and here we go…some lovely pink and white carnations…I love it! It would be perfect as a centrepiece on small tables with some other turquoise and pink touches (in the napckins as well as in the glasses)…What do you think?

DIY Christmas at home

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Hello lovely ladies!

I’ve just come back from Italy where I spent some amazing Christmas holiday! I’m a bit sad but happy to go back to my little house too!
On Christmas day I organised a big fat Italian dinner at mine (there were 13 of us!) and had fun with my sister and MrB to arrange the decorations for our table – my mum wanted to remain the queen of the kitchen, so no way she let us cook something!

We went for a traditional red themed table, using a long red runner on a white table cloth, paper tissues in white and red colours, red glasses and white plates from my mum’s wedding!
The flowers part was the most difficult one. I got some inspiration from the Christmas design to order photos by Interflora and tried to personalised them with something simpler…so we went for pine brunches (from my garden), two white roses, a few cinamon sticks and coloured ribbons using a jam jar. We used the same type of vase, but smaller, for the candles, which we decorated with some pine brunches again.

My sister was the creative behind the menus, the best thing! I managed to make two heart shaped holders out of some old wire…
