BEHIND THE SCENES: Table Design Photo Shoot!

Last month Remember This Day had the wonderful opportunity to be the event designer/art director for a local photoshoot at the simply stunning Bellevue Hall Mansion, that has been submitted to some amazing wedding/event publications!!  Not only was this a fun day with awesome vendors contributing their time, talent and services/products... but it also allowed us to showcase Remember This Day's ability to put together a cohesive tablescape design in just a week's notice!!  Amazing what you can do by knowing the right vendors to call!

MUCH thanks to the fabulous Kate's Lens Photography who chose to include *US* as their event designer, and to Flowers by Mary Elizabeth for providing the beautiful floral arrangements!!  Also, SAS Cupcakes donated their delicious and decadent cupcakes for our displays... and we coordinated linens with our favorite vendor, Gala!

These are just a few images (that we didn't submit for publication)... so keep your eyes posted in the coming months for a full showcase of Remember This Day's event design and art direction for this beautiful photoshoot, as well as being published in some prestigious magazines! 

Here is a "Behind the Scenes" look at Remember This Day hard at work!!

We really wanted to incorporate modern elements alongside vintage pieces.  Bellevue Hall is jam-packed with character, so with this table design we went with a French Blue floor length linen with a loose lace overlay that dropped to the floor, with coordinating French Blue napkins.  We highlighted the metallic trends that are soooo hot this season with antique silverware and other silver pieces and a POP of color with the flowers!
One of my favorite setups of the day was this one- in the Parlor!!  The pink walls went really well with this ivory, green and blush-colored floral linen with coordinating blush napkins.  We accented the gold thread and embroidery in the linen with gold serving pieces.  I just love this rustic floral arrangement, too! 
This next setup I love... goes to show you how elegant (and inexpensive, actually!) a tall centerpiece full of simple baby's breath!!  We also incorporated some of our own rental pieces into this design, as well as our stationery (table number, in this instance).   
The wood paneling in the Bellevue's "Library" room is just amazing.  I wanted to show a bit of an "Old World" feel in this design because of all the dark wood and ornate mirrors!

And last but definitely not least... is my assistant Art Director for the day... my son!! :-)  He was quite helpful!!

I am so excited to be able to share these few "behind the scenes" images... and trust me, you WILL want to see the rest of them once we're able to share them with you!!!  I'm just over the moon about how perfect everything came out!!  Stay tuned....
