Lotus Inspired Tablescape

Hello Readers!

For those who have been checking my blog religiously for new entries, I apologize for the lack of updates! I've been very very busy booking weddings for 2010, and working on ideas for my upcoming projects.
Anyways, for those of you who have been following my blog, you know how I feel about cultural weddings. I love how couples reflect their cultural values and also incorporate different cultural details into their weddings. It really does add that special touch to make a wedding that much more meaningful. I simply adore them!

This season I feel like there have been A LOT of vintage, and rustic inspired dessert bars and tablescapes. I've seen so many pictures of beautiful designs out in the blog world. However, I haven't seen many Asian inspired tablescapes or dessert bars. While talking to one of my clients I was inspired to do a LOTUS INSPIRED tablescape with a French twist! :) I have decided to collaborate with some of my favorite vendors to do a photoshoot for this new idea! I am so excited to share with you guys what we have come up with. It is definitely something new, creative, and stylish. Yet very meaningful. To be honest I am more nervous about the photoshoot rather than my upcoming weddings!

While looking around online for inspiration, I stumbled upon this blog called Lotus Haus. You must check out her blog for Asian inspired theme weddings, parties, showers, floral inspirations, or any products related to the Asian culture. Here are some pictures I saved on my desktop from her blog.




I'm crossing my fingers that we can pull off this look sometime in end of November or early December so please continue to visit the blog for updates.

Speaking of culture infused ideas, here are some killer fusion/couture hanbok images designed by Mehee Kim. She was the designer for Grey’s Anatomy star Sandra Oh back in 2008 SAG Awards.
Enjoy!
