For this spread, Lo McShay of Cambridge’s LoLo Event Design updated one of her favorite creations from the fall wedding season. “We were inspired by the vibrant color combinations of the venue,” McShay says, “which lead us to a Royal Tenenbaums meets Bordeaux design approach—or as I nicknamed it, ‘eclectic preppy.’”
– “We always recommend finding an element you can mix and match to make the design more approachable. The emerald-green wine glass and purple wine goblet add to the color of the table, while the gold-rimmed Champagne flute keeps the right level of formality.”
– “The candelabras add a level of formality to the table and create height within the space. We painted them powder blue and finished with gold candles for a whimsical touch.”
– “This menu card design is a modern take on a toile concept. We commissioned a toile designer to create a custom pattern to tell the love story of our bride and groom. Local stationer Lynn Graham brought the design to life.” As for the gold goodies? “We’ve been eyeing this modern brushed gold flatware,” says McShay, whose rental partner, Peterson Party Center, recently added the style to the inventory.
