rsz_expressionary-events-style-unveiled-2013-0051

Carmen of Expressionary Events coordinated this gorgeous photo shoot at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel. The photo shoot was featured on Style Unveiled and we are thrilled! Carmen took the nonliteral approach with the Stars and Stripes theme and what a perfect color choice! Just happened to be the Pantone “color of the year,”Radiant Orchid!” Everything was captured beautifully by D. Park Photography and the cinematographer was provided from Motivity Films. At the altar Shawna Yamamoto Design’s incorporated our candy jars with her stunning floral design. Superfine Bakery provided the cake that is on our candy and dessert table and what a beautiful cake it was. Linens were from Glow Concepts Fine Linens , chairs were from Classic Party Rentals. The lovely bride’s dress was provided by Rmine Bespoke. Her hair and make-up was skillfully done by Design Visage, and jewelry from Always Ari. What a gorgeous styled shoot that all these awesome vendors made possible.

SPRING GARDEN LUNCHEON WITH SOFT SORBETS

FD24_opt
After meeting with Kellie at FormDecor, we fell in love with this teal vintage cabinet and knew it would be the inspiration for our colorful shoot. These colors would be beautiful for a birthday celebration, spring garden luncheon, a baby shower, or a brunch with your lovely ladies. This feminine set up was softened by the gorgeous back drop and linens provided by Glow Concepts – Fine Linens. The design of the custom invitations and paper products by Paper Crew complimented our candy and dessert set up perfectly. The adorable flower arrangements were designed by Romance Etc. Sweet treats for this look were by Sweet and Saucy Shop . Can we say YUM?! We’d like to give a HUGE shout out to Lauren Avila Photography who did an awesome job on these images. We hope our photo shoot inspires you for your festivities but don’t forget that we can take all this out of your hands and style your dessert table for you!

PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES! ALL ABOARD THE TRANSPORTATION PARTY!

FD81_opt
We are so excited to post this wonderful boyhood shoot we styled with you! The planes, trains and automobiles theme took off in a fun direction. With the right mix of industrial and a few vintage pieces worked in, from the amazing FormDecor, we arrived at our party destination!
Chanda from Paper Crew designed the wonderful invitations and labels for all of the candy and desserts! We thought this look would work for a Baby Shower, the red wingback chair would make a great mother-to-be chair, a Birthday Party or even a Bar Mitzvah! The ever so talented Lauren Avila from Lauren Avila Photography furnished us with these gorgeous photos and the delicious desserts we selected for our transportation theme were from Sweet and Saucy Shop!

A PINK AND GREY WEDDING WITH CHEVRONS, BLINK AND A TON OF LOVE AT HOTEL MAYA!

View More: http://gallery.pass.us/olivaresAll of the weddings or events we design and set up for out clients are very special to us but Crystal and Danny’s wedding at Hotel Maya was something extra special. We had met Crystal about 6 months prior to her wedding and she was so sweet with a smile that lights up a room! Then we met Danny! You could feel the love they had for each other and we loved his involvement in the design of their candy and dessert table! During the planning of their wedding, Crystal had multiple losses in her family, one was her mother! I know their were times when she thought,”How could they plan such a celebration with so much sadness!” With the rest of their families and friends support, they made it to their wedding day and what a magical day it was! We are so thrilled we could be a part of this celebration of love for Crystal and Danny! We are so happy for them and  what a perfect Valentine’s Day post to feature!

HOLIDAY CANDY AND DESSERTS WITH MID CENTURY MODERN FURNISHINGS AND METALLICS

We were so thrilled to have the opportunity to do a photo shoot at FormDecor! They welcomed us with open arms and were so gracious! We wanted to showcase their fabulous rental furnishings, mixed with our styled candy and dessert set up. What an amazing combination it turned out to be. We fell in love with this dresser during a walk through and knew we had to use it for our metallic set up. We styled the shoot to focus on how a set up in your own home, on a smaller scale, can be stunning with some rental pieces to create some added drama. The design could easily transition into a larger holiday bash at your favorite venue! It was so hard to pick from all the amazing furniture and accessories that FromDecor has to offer but we thought these antique gold side tables worked perfect for our set up. FormDecor is the perfect place for Mid Century Modern Furniture Rentals any event, small or large. It was a wonderful day! Thank You to all the vendors for their hard work and participation! Photography by Lauren Avila Photography, stunning custom paper products by Paper Crew, backdrop and linens by Glow Concepts – Fine Linens, floral design by Romance Etc., desserts by Sweet and Saucy and yours truly.

BRIGHT FUN BABY SHOWER CANDY BUFFET WITH CHEVRON AND POLKA DOT PRINTS

We are so happy to share these photo’s with you of this baby shower for our special friend Jamie Sanchez! We are so excited, she is having a baby boy and we can’t wait to babysit baby Joshua. The mother-to-be had decorated the nursery so darling, that her sister Melissa and I decided to carry the chevron theme, orange, grey, aqua and chartreuse colors over to the baby shower. She requested a brunchy kind of lunch with mimosa’s, tea sandwiches and a candy and dessert buffet. We went with the Wine Down Lounge at The Sky Room in Long Beach. Lauren from Lauren Avila Photography came through with amazing shots as usual. We provided the backdrop and the decor for the venues desserts. Melissa and I worked on banners and centerpieces. The invitations where a perfect match to the chalkboard signs they use to list their wines. They have their own vineyard and their wines are amazing! We had a great day and can’t wait for Joshua’s arrival!
