Morning, everyone! Valentine’s Day may be over, but the pink parties aren’t going anywhere, thanks to these Lunar New Year wedding and tablescape ideas that Wendy of Formosa Events and Pepper and Light sent our way in honor of tomorrow’s holiday. The Toronto-based team pulled in Asian heritage, east and west coast décor elements, and luxe design that, while inspired by the Year of the Dog, could be for just about any occasion you could dream up.
Wendy says, 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.
Gah, those flowers! Safe to say the crew at Jackie-O killed it. Not to mention, this chic cake…
With red being a traditional color in Chinese New Year celebration, everyone challenged themselves to take a more modern approach with the burgundy + pink color story throughout.
Love the idea of taking a traditional family get together and elevating it with an amazing visual experience, don’t you?
So impressive! Cakies, be sure to check out the talents below for even more inspiration…
