La Fete’s Annual Christmas Tea 2014
When the weather starts to change in the fall, we begin dreaming up new ideas for how we will design our annual Christmas Tea. We find ourselves looking forward to this wonderful Christmas Season all year. This is a tradition we have continued since Kaitlin was around 6 years old, but over the past few years we have changed the way we do them. Five years ago we thought- “Why not turn this into a photo shoot opportunity?” So we started by decorating an elegant table & inviting our closest friends in the event industry. We love this chance to treat these wonderful ladies to an afternoon that completely pampers them. We share our highlights from the year, along with goals we have for next year, and reflect on the ways that God has blessed our lives.
We always love any chance to design something completely different than a wedding & this time we were excited to work with such a rich color palette. We were shopping in Palm Desert and found these fun silver taper candleholders shaped like antlers and right away we knew we wanted to create something rustic, but still glamourous, moody and romantic. We chose the stunning Velvet linen in Wine from La Tavola along with Topaz Burgundy napkins and chair pads to keep the monochromatic look we were going for! We also adorned this insanely gorgeous chandelier with fresh sprigs of magnolia- Sending a special thank you to Lani from LBPS!! We always enjoy picking up fresh flowers and greens from Florabundance and arranging the flowers ourselves-This is one of our favorite parts! Thank you to Town and Country Event Rentals for supplying their rustic x-back chairs along with some of the lovely china & glassware!
We are so incredibly thankful for these gorgeous photos from Melissa Musgrove Photography– You always capture our Christmas Tea with such elegance and the group shot of all of us warms our heart! Thank you again!
