“Being a girly girl at heart, I love nothing more than the feminine side of dressing.
This dress, by Keepsake, inspired the floral motif throughout the party decor.” – Jenny
SETTING THE SCENE
The party was held at the historic Lombardi House in Hollywood. The newly remodeled digs offer up four private suites, a charming refurbished barn, and a gorgeous garden fit for fancy alfresco dining.
Spruce up any space with a decorative tapestry or fabric. We sourced our floral print from downtown LA’s fashion district where one can get lost in a textile frenzy.
Tabletop Trends to Try
• Ribbon-wrapped candles
• Sheer cotton linens that allow the textures of the table to shine through
• Pretty place settings from the Ark, Flowerwild’s new rental company that’s launching this year!
Personalized Place Settings
“Each of my girlfriends love fashion as much as I do so tying in my love for gold jewelry is something I knew they would appreciate. I incorporated these darling personalized nameplate bracelets by Junghwa into each place setting by clasping it around the napkins.” – Jenny
#FASHIONTOTABLE for #FLUTTERMAGAZINE
Guests were welcomed with sparkling French 75s.
This signature sip is a piece of cake for any hostess to shake up.
3 tbsp Gin, ¼ cup champagne/sparkling wine, 1 ½ tbsp fresh lemon juice, 1 tbsp simple syrup, 1 lemon, 1 ice cube, 1 sugar cube
In a cocktail shaker combine gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Add ice and shake. Strain into a glass and top with champagne. Curl a lemon peel and garnish your drink with a twist!
La Vie En Fashion
Jenny is well-seasoned in all things Paris. It was a no-brainer to put a French twist into her family-style menu that included delectable small bites, assorted tartines and mini desserts.
Couture (Ice Cream) Cake
“Raspberry filling inside of a cake has always been my absolute favorite guilty pleasure! We called on Whoa Nelly Catering to create a dessert incorporating this, but with an updated element.
I love the new trend of naked cakes so this was a great creative twist that I was excited to present my guests with. Best part… it’s an ice cream cake!” – Jenny
