Pretty in Pastels, Mia and Dan 25.05.13

We met Mia and Dan just under a year and half before their May 25th, 2013 wedding, we knew from the minute we met that we were the perfect fit to create their ultimate day. It was to be filled with pretty spring blooms in soft pastels, layers and levels of florals, complemented with regal gold and elegant silver accents, overall...The Epitome of Romance, Beauty and Glamour! In tune with all things that we adore, we loved every gorgeous minute!

We are so thrilled to have the opportunity to relive Mia and Dan's breathtaking wedding day and share it with you, through the stunning images captured by Gillian Williamson of Ikonica. We hope that you love it as much as we do!

Mia and Dan, we wish you eternal bliss, love and happiness xo

A TABLESETTING FOR ALL

Hello Everyone! 

The beautiful weather we've had as of late is definitely a warm welcome to our 2013 Wedding Season! Before we are whisked away into the busy months ahead, we would love to share more of our Gorgeous tablesettings with you, from the One King West Open House we were apart of back in January! 

 Enjoy!

Inspired by the West Coast sun of San Francisco and Gorgeous Vineyards of Nappa Valley, Succulents and Blooms in hues of Ivory, Purple, Lilac/Lavender and Grey undertones are complemented with Silver vessels and Textured linen.

 

Sparkling White, like the Flecks of Snow on a Winter's day, this tablesetting offers Presence and Scale, with layers of Luscious White Florals, White Sequin Linen and Glass and Silver accents. 

The Delicate and Soft colour palette with Gold accents and Beautiful Lace complements, lends a Romantic and Vintage nuance to this Classic and Elegant tablescape...the Epitome of Romance! And, one of our most requested and popular style.

Dramatic, Alluring and Seductive... This tablescape evokes a sense of Mystery, an aura of Dark Romance - Enthralled by the Beauty of Pink Blooms, layered Pink Baby's Breath, Feathers and Black Lace...Inspired by a literary classic, the Beautiful words from 'The Great Gatsby', translates into this intimate soirée setting!

Vibrant, Golden Sun-kissed Florals -These Beauties, paired with Sleek and Contemporary Plexi Candelabras, accented with Textural Petal place settings and Sparkling Black Sequin linens offers Masculine subtleties, while inviting you to a Sophisticated and Modern Dining Extravaganza!...

Right from the canvas of a Romantic still life painting, with a Bright and Vibrant colour palette, our Peach-toned Amaryllis and Sumptuous Purple complements with touches of Green, highlights the Sparkling Aubergine Sequins linen!

Inspired by the serenity and scenery of the Muskoka's...Our Lush White Florals with touches of Green, highlight the carved Mango Wood vessels and Coral coloured linen... A little something different!

Kevin's very own creation! Stylistically different than our other work, this centerpiece although much more simple, still has our Fuscia touch!      Pomanders of Sumptuous Purple toned florals set in Modern stemmed glass vases... Clean, Colourful and Funky.

The pièce de résistance...The Glamorous, Extravagant and ever so Romantic head table setting. A feast of beauty - with layers of Texture, highlighted with Glints of Sparkle and warmed by Full and Luscious Blooms in a Monochromatic colour palette. A Grand and Magnificent tablescape, fit for a truly unforgettable evening!

WELCOME 2013!

Happy 2013 and a Very Warm and Big Hello to All!

It has been a little while since our last post... Between weddings and events, time sometimes escapes us as we nimbly design in our Studio, with what sometimes looks like a wonderland brimming with flowers.

We have been so fortunate to have had such a wonderful and busy 2012, filled with Love, Laughter, all things Beautiful and of course, the honour of having gracious clients with whom we shared a snippet of their special and memorable day! 

To kick-start the New Year, we had the pleasure of creating Magnificent and Inspiring tablescapes for the Open House at One King West in Toronto. Working alongside with some of the great professional staff at One King West, our Fuscia Team offered a dreamscape of ideas and table settings for all attendees.

There is truly nothing like a sea of Beautiful Colourful Blooms to Brighten up cold winter’s day. 

 

 A table fit for a Glamorous dining affair, captured by the talented Corina, of CORINA V PHOTOGRAPHY, showcases Sumptuous and Delicious hues of Fuscia, Pink and Red Florals atop Sparkling Gold Linen from HAVE A SEAT.  Drama and Grandeur resonates with the Bold touch of Black Crystal Candlesticks and Vessels, perfect for the Grand Banking Hall at ONE KING WEST... Shall we dine?

Hello

Welcome 2012...We’re back .....on the Blog Scene. We have been busy, designing up a storm of Wedding Florals and Décor for all our Fabulous 2011 clients. Each and every Wedding and Event, a Stunning Success, and a Floral and Décor Extravaganza…from Pristine all White Weddings, to Romantic Neutrals to Vibrant and Rich colour Palettes and Flowers. We had the pleasure of decorating the most Exquisite Venues, Spaces and Hotels in and out of Toronto, a few mentionables, The Ritz Carlton Hotel, Lake Joe Resort in Muskoka,, The Fermenting Cellar, Kevins all time favourite ...The Liberty Grand, and many, many more. We followed our Mantra of Go Big or Go Home and by our Thank you Notes and Sentiments, we did not disappoint. We were Enveloped in our Passion (and many times a studio full of flowers) of providing High Style, Impeccable Quality, Design and Service to all.

I would like to begin with our most recent event the Wedluxe Show at The Ritz Carlton Hotel, it was a Spectacular success with 1800 guests visting throughout the day to Experience the Epitome of Luxury, a Feast of Eye Candy and the most Stellar Services in the Wedding Industry.

We were in the company of a Spectacular Roster of Wedding Industry Colleagues and that Toronto has to offer, I have to say that everyone went all out and Brought It!!!!

Our display table was a reflection of Fuscia, it had Movement, Scale and Purpose. We had a quasi Ombre effect starting with Whites, graduating into Shades of Blush and Pink and building from either side to a Crescendo in the Center of the Table, of an Explosion of Fuscia!!!! We used Ultra Chic Vessels in matt Textural Whites fused with Shiny Chrome with the Focal Pias De Resistance, a cut Mirrored stand in the middle. It embodied, Definition Fuscia, unequivocally.

Please forgive me for the iphone pic taken above, obviously lacking the Romance, Light Infused and Detailed images captured by the fabulous Corina, as shown in the First Image and Below.

We also Decorated Small Vignettes of our Wedluxe Photo Shoots, named Kate Spade and Champagne, Carats and Crystal , come to life, best shown on the Wedluxe website in their blog section and of course in the magazine itself. You may also see more pictures of our tablescape on Wedluxe, in the Editors Blog, with coverage of the Show in its entirety.

I wanted to show the full tablescape to boasts the Stunning Sequin Linens and Lace Chair Slips.  Can you say,  to die for? its like the table is adorn in an Exquisite Evening Gown!!! We had the honour to display a sampling for the Linen Closet's Debut at The Wedluxe Show, of Luxerious Linens and Chair Slips from their Sparkle and Lace Collection. Stay tuned for the whole Fashion Inspired Collections, opening in April of 2012.

We were also tickled pink with the Gorgeous Designs by the ultra talented Deborah Lau, from PALETERRA Custom Correspondants, who completed our table, with Beyond Breathtaking Menus , Placecards and our Table Number, which was notably Table no. 1.

In addition we created Floral Arrangements for Torontos Top Wedding Planners Booths,

Cynthia Martyn  Wedding Planner and Stylist Extraordinaire, of Cynthia Martyn High Style Events' booth in shades of Corals, with a Hint of Pink (Cynthia's signature colour in which we share and adore) and Red, displayed in a Crystal Pedstal Vase on a Mirrored Base and on the Console a Mirrored rectangular vase. TheHighlight flowers were a Delicious combination of Fragrant Garden Roses, Amaryllis and Hydrangea.

provided Floral Arrangements for.... 

Platinum Events Group, shown here, the Fabulous Cindy Johnson, Principal Planner and Stylist and Gabriella Castillo, her equally fabulous assistant. We arranged a clean yet Luxe arrangement with all White Phalenopsis Orchids in an Ultra Chic (reflective, I think, of Cindy's tastes as a Stylist)White Textural Vase and a Floral Oblique on a Platinum stand for the coffee table.

Purple was the "it" colour for 2010 and this wedding shows it with passion and a cool modern vibe.... 

held at one of the most architecturally stunning venues in the city, The Art Gallery of Toronto . The couple Karen and Dave , were referred to us in the best way possible, through a friends wedding that we decorated two years ago. We have had such a blast working with both couples, stay tuned for another to come in 2011....back to Karen and Dave, they are a young, vibrant, modern and stylish couple who knew the feeling of what they sought as an overall vision, I won't mention which one over the other, nor a certain nickname that ensued, needless to say we had alot of fun along the way! The theme revolved into a clean, modern urban chic lounge style wedding, which complimented Karen and Dave's style perfectly.

without further adu,

 

I am so in love with Karens spectacular bouquet to this day (its on my fb profile as we speak), in shades of purple... from Lavender to Amethyst, to Eggplant, the flowers included Roses, Calla lilies and breathtaking, beyond gorgeous Phalenopsis and Vanda Orchids! Laura Jane rocked it out by capturing each flower perfectly!

 

Karen and her girls....are the stage, the bouquets merely players ( did I just bust out a quasi Shakesphere quote?) or shall I say accents to the beauty of the bride and her maids in this image.....you will notice the tones and shades of the flowers are ever previlent, this is the art and magic of a professional photographer!

 

wait for it.....wait for it....

 

Voila! a glamorous line up all of the bouquets in their entirety.... and minutes before they sashay .....up the aisle (as some call it the runway) for the ceremony

 

The Ceremony, surrounded by a circle of family and friends in Walkers Court, how Beautiful, Heartfelt and Endearing ...Love is in the air!......adorn with vignettes of leaning and submersed bouquets on all four corners of the alter space.....

 

The Exquisite Cake ..... a masterpiece in itself!

 

The Head Table, embellished with Bling and Crystal elements, not to mention a Fabulous Array of Purple Orchids, Calla lilies and Roses....

 

The Centerpieces, the epitome of a cool, trendy, lounge vibe with uplit Purple Dendrobium Orchids, Decorative Silver wiring and Bling candles! Artsy, Clean and Modern with a Glamorous nuance!
