Our Design at the Luxe Linen Launch Event at Vibiana

Last year we were completely blown away by the beauty that took place at the Luxe Linen Launch event at Vibiana located in downtown Los Angeles. So its safe to say that when we were asked to design a space featuring one of Luxe Linen’s new tablecloths- we were thrilled and honored to be a part of such a fabulous event!

We began designing our display with Camellia Floral Design and we were thrilled to be using a color palette that we don’t often get to work with. Inspired by an alfresco dinner set in a romantic backyard of a Montecito estate- Revelry Event Designers assembled this stunning large wooden arbor where we suspended large chandeliers with soft wood beads & romantic peach colored chiffon drapery. Then Camille added her whimsical flowers in a way that looked as if they were growing throughout the space. Party Pleasers provided layers of seagrass rugs and their unique terra cotta and copper place settings to add the perfect finishing touches.

We’d like to extend an extra special thank you to the fabulous team of professionals who made this vision come to life! This includes: Camellia Floral Design, Revelry Event Design, Luxe Linens, Party Pleasers, Calligraphy Katrina, High Voltage Lighting, Vibiana, Rayce PR, Natura Macrame, and Brian Leahy for the absolutely gorgeous images of our design. We were beyond thrilled to be included in this fabulous event and were incredibly overwhelmed by the large attendance & sweet compliments about our design. Luxe Linen – Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of this magical evening.

Here is the beautiful video of the full event put together by Lin & Jirsa:

Rustic Barn Rehearsal Dinner

When we began planning the wedding for our clients Alex and Alyssa, we started by touring their property and listening to their vision. Then we ventured down into the barn… It was truly love at first site, and we knew we needed to throw Alex and Alyssa a rustic barn themed rehearsal dinner. Some spaces just speak to you, and this was one of them. Complete with 3 giant wrought iron chandeliers running down the center of the barn and stunning corrals & fixtures- we were dying to dress this place up! We introduced the clients to these darling distressed farm tables at Town & Country then chose a fun “bandana” patterned table runner from La Tavola. And to top it all off- Mindy Rice added so much cheer to the tables with her eclectic mix of sunflowers & rusty lanterns.

Each place setting was finished with a mini cowbell tied around the napkin (which the guests could ring throughout the evening) and these fabulous copper handled flatware from Town & Country Event Rentals!

Thanksgiving Decorations!

One of our favorite places to shop for holiday decor is Pottery Barn.  They always have the most wonderful selection of thanksgiving decorations that are so inspiring! So today I put together a little sampling of the way we LOVE to decorate our home and to share some tips on how to set a beautiful thanksgiving table!

I also wanted to share a Thanksgiving turkey stuffing recipe we stumbled upon last year that we absolutely love:

Ingredients

  • 1 pound mild bulk breakfast sausage
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups sliced leeks, white and pale green parts only, cleaned well (about 2 large leeks)
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, cored and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped celery with leaves
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 cup dried cranberries, rehydrated in boiling water for 15 minutes and drained
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage leaves
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 6 cups boxed bread cubes (croutons)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 to 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Saute the sausage in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat until cooked through, crumbling coarsely with the back of a spoon, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage and drippings to a large bowl. Melt the butter in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the leeks, apples, celery and poultry seasoning to the skillet and saute until the leeks are soft, about 8 minutes. Mix in the drained cranberries, sage and rosemary. Add the mixture to the sausage, then mix in the croutons and parsley. Next add the chicken stock a little at a time until the stuffing is very moist. Be sure not to overdo it; it shouldn’t be mushy. Season with salt and pepper. Place in a casserole dish. (The stuffing can be made to this point 2 days before Thanksgiving, refrigerated.)

Bake in a 14-inch oval or 9 by 13-inch rectangular casserole dish and place, uncovered, in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes, until the top is crispy and the center piping hot. Remove and serve immediately.

*Cook’s Note: If stuffing a turkey, the stuffing must be cold before being placed in the bird.
