A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to create florals for back-to-back events at Carondelet House. I have been dying to do something there since attending a cocktail party there a few months ago. The space is gorgeous, with plenty of lounge areas, a central courtyard, back patio, fireplace, exposed brick, fountains and plenty of character. If you are not familiar with Carondelet, you need to check it out here.
Because it is Summer and we have been a little obsessed with incorporating fruits and vegetables into our arrangements, we decided to use artichokes and sage. To complement the space, we opted for white, green, orange, and because I love me some pops of color, fuchsia and dark purple. We also added hydrangea, roses, dahlias, calla lilies, freesia, Amaranthus and voila!
We were so excited to be invited to the tastemaker dinner on the second evening. Entertainment provided by Elan Artists, coupled with delicious food and cocktails courtesy of Tres LA. What a perfect evening! Seriously, how does Tres LA make everything look amazing and taste even better?
