the cream part 1 / photos by marble rye & moi

April 4, 2013

cream1a

finally i am post images from the cream event! it was quite the experience. i was surrounded by amazingly talented folks from all over town and felt so lucky to be amongst them! i met so many wonderful folks that i hope to work with lots in the future. thank you to everyone that came out!

below are couple shots of my table. the problem with doing your table and several other projects is that it leaves little energy to document so my apologies if my images aren’t up to par! we poured our hearts into this display – it was loaded with moss, orchids, succulents, floral notes and surprises all along the way. we designed a sweet heart table that was suited for a romantic pair. at the plate of the bride and groom was a tiny miniature nude that pulled a thread tied to a mica gilded wishbone (real!) in the center of their settings. the idea suggesting that the two would break the bone and wish for the best on their upcoming adventure as a team. throughout the table dressings there were many more scenes to encounter… such as honeymoons in the van with the pets, a glitter dance party in one of the vintage glass / brass trinket boxes, a woman painting a male nude, a lady flying a kite with her dog companion and much more… we were so lucky we got to use a gorgeous table and bench from found rentals and two sexy bertoia chairs from yeah! rentals to complete our look.
hopefully we can score some other shots of our table from elsewhere but in the mean time this serves as a little insight on our display at the cream event…

one of the best parts of the event was collaborating with the talented jessica of bramble workshop to create this tablescape for the delicious urban palate display. they are such an incredible group of folks at this catering company – warm and friendly, up for creative challenges and best of all make the yummiest treats in town. jessica is responsible for the lovely box designs and the background and my handy work is all the florals. we did 6 lovely arrangements for their table along with garnish dressings and sweet boutineers to pin on to their handsome staff.

another collaboration was this planted tipi (tepee, teepee…) for bash, please. this tipi was covered from head to toe in succulents, ferns, moss and love. it took a small crew of patient ladies with a passion for plants to install this beauty. i am quite pleased with the end result of this project but i have some ideas for a more sustainable planted tipi in the works! this one inspired me so much and was such a blast to build i kinda think i want to do my first test garden tipi for my dog…
tipi!

and my last collaboration with miss jess was this backdrop for smilebooth…. it was super silky soft. at one point in the process of making it i was convinced that i should put the strips of fabric on everything as decoration, including myself as a scarf. i think that is the side effect that happens when you spend hours upon hours starring and cutting  gold shiny metallic fabric…

a big thank you to my friend and photographer melissa at marble rye for most of the images on this post (and on my site!) of this event.

last week i had the great privilege of participating in the la mart‘s artisan showcase on the 11th floor. i didn’t invite my usual company considering it was set up for wholesale ordering but i had to share the experience! my fellow artisans – some i knew before and some are now new friends – were such an creative and rad bunch. please be sure to check out their sites and consider them when buying your next gifts… you won’t be disappointed.

another must see… a dear friend opened up an awesome new space on the 11th floor of the mart called collective field. inside their offices they feature some  amazing projects by talents such as nancy stella soto, joshua nathanson, emilie halpern and more…
so yeah i was surrounded by beauty. life ain’t bad. and of course hannah dog  got to join the fun.
