A Dutch Still Life Dinner Party

May 31, 2012

Last month we had the chance to attend a super fun dinner party, arranged by Leila of Be Inspired PR and hosted by Nathanial of Contemporary Catering. It was such a nice evening and so much fun to be able to chat with a bunch of talented ladies and gents in the industry.

The dark, moody design was beautiful and luxurious and totally different than so much of what we’re seeing right now. Change is always good! The theme was inspired by Dutch still life paintings, and played up the trend of matte textures and tones. Awesome designing Cortnie and Carissa! And the seven course dinner from Contemporary Catering was definitely memorable. Especially the decadent cheese plate to start, and the teeny sasparilla float at the end.

For those of you planning your fall 2012 or spring 2013 weddings, this bit of inspiration pairs perfectly with the dark Vera Wang gowns from her current collection. Yum!
