Behind the Scenes – Pantone Emerald and White Wedding Inspiration Part I

Emerald, the punchy, saturated, sophisticated Pantone Color of the Year and our muse for a shoot project to celebrate my most recent pattern collaboration with the team at Envelopments®!  So to follow up last year’s watercolor pattern named Trellis, I joined forces with the talented crew at Envelopments® to create another watercolor pattern launched this past February.  Fiore, is a modern, whimisical spin on a classic Florentine pattern.  Fiore is the dishy, detailed and fresh follow up to last year’s feminine, flowery Trellis.

So I gathered a team of creatives to paint, shoot, film and flower a celebration of the new Fiore pattern.  Every surface celebrated the wit and whimsy of this versatile pattern with Pantone’s color of the year at the heart of it all.  Emerald and Fiore made a mindful match…we’re in love.

Fiore inspired a mod king’s feast table; an edited bounty of fresh from the garden greens set amongst clean whites and watercolor saturated greens.


Taking cues from Fiore’s graceful lines and lazy curves, I painted the dinnerware with shimmery golds and green.


The menu features a simple, free-hand painted pattern…


Our talented Jess, crafted this gilded antler chandelier from drum head frames and chain…so amazing.

The Dessy Group‘s Pantone matched gowns…perfection.  And how about that capelet from Desla Couture?


Place cards wrap the plates…so enchanted by Meant to Be Calligraphy‘s hand


Fiore upholstery and the succulent and Hellebore filled bouquets from Papertini.


Several suites of Fiore stationery were designed for this shoot and this was the first.  A soft palette of greens and gold brushstrokes sit beautifully alongside the richly detailed Fiore pattern.
