This lavish styled shoot brought to us by Wendy of Asian Fusion Weddings (Toronto, ON) is truly a feast for the eyes! Here’s Wendy to tell us more:
Chinese New Year is always celebrated with friends and family at home, and eating together is always part of the 15 day celebrations. Although food is a very important element at these get-togethers, often times the visual and aesthetic experience for our guests may be overlooked. For this very reason, our team wanted to showcase two very distinct looks that anyone can do at home. These decorative ideas are really simple to execute, but they really do enhance the dining table tremendously.
See more after the cut!
Thinking about all those Lunar New Year family dinners over the years, personally, I was ultimately inspired by two specific things. First, Pantone’s colour of year for 2017; greenery. This was the reason green was selected in the colour palette. Secondly, would it be possible to have a Chinese inspired shoot without featuring traditional red? I believe our team was successful in demonstrating a modern interpretation of Asian decor and styling when you look at the video and pictures.
The other design features that our team encapsulated was the Yin and Yang concept. One table featured a bold approach with the use of Bonsai trees. It translated into a more sophisticated masculine feel. The second table donated a more feminine touch with an abundance of flowers in shades of soft pinks and purples.
My continuous inspiration is derived from my clients’ cultural backgrounds, their individual tastes and impeccable styles. Hence the company name “Asian Fusion Weddings”. However, there are also clients that want a very visually detailed rich celebration where the cultural aspects are not the main focus. Hence “Formosa Events”. Formosus in Latin means beautifully formed. Therefore, when couples consult with this company, they desire more visual eye candy at their events.
In either case, it brings me great joy to be able to infuse their wishes into one creatively detailed and cohesive design; whether it be a gathering at home, an intimate affair and/or an extravagant wedding. The key for designing any celebrations is to maintain the colour scheme, use a variety of textures and remember what the purpose of the event is all about.
