Just the thought of Paris evokes feelings of romance. Ok, I am a romantic too. As one of my favorite poets Kahlil Gibran would say "Speak to us of Love.' 'When love beckons to you follow him." I am so excited, I just finished some research about Parisian Weddings. Oh Paris the city of love. Even the language sounds like love. I know I am rambling, no.. no.. I am blogging. Well, this is how it all came about. I was doing a tablescape and of course I needed to (1) either buy everything again or (2) go to the warehouse of some of my nearest and dearest friends. My dear collegue and friend Tuesdi of Soiree Events,Etc lent me her Eiffel Tower.She had recently done a super job with it in designing a "Girls Night Out Theme" in a tablescape for ISES ( International Special Events Society). I absouletly loved it. So I thought I will give it a new twist. I love boas. They are sooo soft and you can design so many things with them. So I wrapped the tower with ribbons and boas. Add some lights and some bling OH LA LA! Now I don't have a picture yet but as soon as I do, I will post it. Hopefully, you can picture this in your mind. Black table linnen with a silvergray runner with this Eiffel Tower which I believe was about 26 inches high. The lights were left on the tower with the boa and ribbon threaded through it. Always go for the bling. The lights reflected the ribbon and the boas. In the middle of the tower a few more lights were added with roses. The effect was unique and different. Now if you are solid in tradition, maybe this is not for you, and all roses would be a better bet. But if you are planning a Parisian Themed Wedding, why not the Eiffel Tower. Go for the bling! Ballard designs http://www.ballarddesigns.com/ carries some really cool mini Eiffel Towers which you could easily add to your tablescape or could be used as a favor.
But if you feeling very eclectic- try the black wedding gown or a black and white version. The little black dress took a whole new meaning and is reported as the wedding dress of choice by couture designers like Max Chaoul. I am so French inspired tonight ~ When planning your wedding or event, always let your personality shine with alittle dazzle, and alittle glam. Add a little tradition with a little glam.
