I have been attending The Cream Event since the very beginning, so when I was asked to participate I was immediately excited and knew I would have to create something amazing since vendors and brides attend in order to be inspired. When I was told that the theme would be whites and creams, there was another level of concern since I am someone who LOVES color. I knew it would be a challenge, but luckily I was able to pair up with my friend Danielle. Danielle, from Brown Paper Design, and I have been working together for years and our events are some of my favorites. She is one of the most creative people I know, so I was confident we would come up with something special. She recently launched a new company called The Plant Library and wanted to showcase it at The Cream. She asked if I would be ok with using plants as opposed to flowers and suggested I go to a nearby nursery to immerse myself in the plant world. I headed over and took a million photos and by the time I was done, I knew what we would do! I came up with the idea of Cuba during prohibition – it seemed like we would be able to do something tropical and it would be a good backdrop for plants. Cuba has a rich history and background in the rum trade so I figured it would work perfectly for this event. We had many calls and meetings and I think we came up with something pretty unique. We had rustic vintage pieces from Found, a custom runner and draped backdrop, plus some textural tabletop items sourced from all over. We ended up having a lovely, artisanal look and I adore all of the green (of course)!
