Nothing makes us happier than a repeat client! When Marina called for us to work together again for her adorable son’s Baptism we were thrilled! We loved working with her for her daughter’s elegant and girly Seashells and Pearls event a few years back and couldn’t wait to hear what she had in mind for her little guy Teddy! Everything came together nicely for a kite and pinwheel filled celebration this past July.
We kicked off the event with custom crisp white and blue invitations with kite detail, the color palette would be used throughout the event as well as the kites. We love the chance to create custom invitations on events we are working on, this keeps the whole design esthetic consistent from the start.
Shakou Sushi opened it’s latest location in Park Ridge and we are obsessed! The room layout and decor is phenomenal and the food is delicious! For the event, we worked with the team at Shakou to create longer tables for sitting and utilized the booths as well. In the back private room, the buffet was set up for easy access and we created a fun backdrop for the dessert table. The backdrop included a fun scenic moment with a custom kite and puffy white clouds. On the dessert table we kept the dessert risers in a clean and neutral color palette of glass, white and sand colored. In the front of the restaurant, a long banquet style table was covered in white paper for kids to draw and enjoy throughout the event.
All the kites and pinwheels were hand made by Angie in different blue and white prints and along with the fresh white hydrangeas, created a very fresh and summer atmosphere throughout the restaurant. Lots of candles were used throughout the room and we kept the design very narrow as to not obstruct the dining experience.
For the head table the large custom kite was hung from a tall fresh green fixture and down the center of the table we had continuous candles and florals in coordinating vessels.
We wish baby Teddy and his wonderful & beautiful family Congratulations on his special day! Marina, it was a pleasure working with you again:) Have a great weekend everyone!
