Color Me Beautiful: Confetti Toss Exit Inspiration!

Comments: 1

4

Confetti is one of those age-old details that remind us of carefree, summer days spent as children celebrating life’s joys.

Now, confetti can be as sophisticated as gold sequins in a monogrammed velvet pouch and as fun as rainbow-hued bits of flying paper sending a sweet bride and groom off! It’s a great alternative to sparklers!

While florals usually take center stage, we are also inspired by leafy, long, delicate branches.  Olive branches or flowering pear, living plants or golden imitations, branches can be lovely decor element that adds an organic and romantic feel to any wedding.

Charleston Wedding Inspiration: Pearls

There’s nothing more classic than a strand of perfectly polished pearls adorning a bride’s neck.  We love the way brides are modernizing the single strand by layering, knotting, and slinging them around the back of their gowns.

Easton Events Named TOP 10 Most Influential Wedding Designer by The Knot Magazine

Comments: 0

Lynn Easton Andrews was named as one of the top 10 most influential wedding/event designers by The Knot Magazine and her work as a tastemaker is highlighted in the summer issue of The Knot.

The Knot also paid us a huge compliment by making Pippin Hill Farm, co-owned by Lynn and Hubby, Dean Andrews, the first “on location” site for a two day shoot and additionally coming on location to interview Lynn for the Knot Live TV.

The first day was a fashion shoot with the always wonderful Eric Kelley and the next day Jen Fariello worked her normal magic on a styled shoot by Lynn and her team at Easton Events with florals by Southern Blooms. The printed suite by Rock Paper Scissors was “killer” good. Thanks to all of our wonderful vendors for helping us pull together all of the details.

Read more about the photo shoot and video interview and be sure to check out Lynn’s interview on The Knot Live.

Charleston Wedding Inspiration: Eyelet

Eyelet, lace’s pretty sister, has been steadily making a comeback on runways, in gowns, and in tabletop decor.  Eyelet details bring such a dainty, ladylike quality to any wedding. We love it in pure white or in spring’s colors of the moment: pastels.

A Charleston Spring Brunch featured in The Local Palate

I was thrilled to be asked by The Local Palate to be a contributor for the April Issue. Not only do I love this publication, but I am a bit enchanted with the topic at hand – how to host a spring brunch.  I love gathering my nearest and dearest for lingering afternoons full of laughter and stories. I find the trick to a successful brunch is setting a lovely and cozy table paired with a heart warming menu and a festive spring cocktail.

We especially enjoyed developing this story at our boutique hotel in Charleston, S.C.,  Zero George. I recommend picking up a copy of the magazine as it is full of fresh southern food trends and “in the know” regional recommendations.

More of the story and some of my entertaining tips are shared below… Cheers to the first official day of Spring!

Charleston Wedding Inspiration: White Florals

Comments: 0

Sometimes it’s best to return to what is simple, what is pure.  And elegant white blooms can do no wrong in our opinion.  With an all-white bouquet or table arrangement, it’s the perfect opportunity to showcase various textures and greenery.  Whether you’re adding in lots of color elsewhere or keeping your palette all ivory, white florals are just gorgeous.
