How much does this cost?

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

This past weekend I was a guest at the Thomas Fogarty Winery Open House. It’s a spectacular venue nestled up off of Skyline Road. What I loved about this event was the education component that Ellie Warner and her team of designers added. Wedding planner Janece Shellooe of Every Elegant Detail and floral designer Amy Burke of Amy Burke Designs put together three tablescapes to showcase the different levels and price points of design. Rentals were provided by Hartmann Studios and paper design by Rachel Hanson.

It’s often very inspiring to see beautiful tabletop photos but often difficult to determine the price and complexity that may be involved in creating them. This was a great way to compare and contrast three designs side to side.

Can you guess the cost for each 8-person table? (Scroll down slowly. I’ve listed the answers under each photo)

Rentals: $70

Floral: $70

Paper Design: $40

Total: $180

Rentals: $225

Floral: $85

Paper Design: $100

Total: $410

Rentals: $285

Floral: $620

Paper Design: $130

Total: $1,035

Rehearsal Dinner – Josselyn & Matt

Friday, February 12th, 2010

A tale of two coasts. Josselyn grew up in the bay area looking west while Matt’s home was in Cape Cod looking east. The goal was to bring the feeling of the two coasts together without being too overbearingly nautical or “beachy.” Calming colors of slate blue, light blue, sandy tan and crisp white were the main colors of the event. Tables were covered in “timeless ticking” wedgewood linens and decorated with vases of sand, sea shells, whispy sea grass as well as vintage boat lanterns. Accent tables were draped in “sundance” linen, reminiscent of quilted beach blankets.

Guests watched the beautiful sunset behind the Golden Gate Bridge while dining on delicious New England Clam Chowder (a special request from the mother-of-the-groom).

Here are a few photos as captured by Jasmine Wang. Enjoy! -K.
