Asian Inspiration: East Meets Guest

Asian Inspiration: East Meets Guest

Sometimes when you’re browsing the web for ideas, that magic moment happens when you stumble on something that you just absolutely LOVE. I experienced such moment when a recent search for something completely unrelated landed me on this stunning, almost “magical” East Meets Guest reception theme from Brides. Honestly don’t you just want to jump right into the party?

This look would be also be gorgeous for a bridal shower or milestone birthday

The eclectic mix of textiles – boasting Indian, Indonesian, AND Japanese- inspired prints – give such a rich, artistic feel to the tabletop. I also love paper fans cinched with button mums… and the use of thin tubular vases for the tall portion of the centerpieces – a great way to add height & drama to the design without discouraging cross-table conversation!

Chic red bamboo chairs definitely enhance the tabletop design – especially when draped with garlands of button mums!

The 3-tier cake dons a playful, unique design too… I’m loving the fun, contemporary-looking topper! And lucky bamboo bundled with ribbon doubles as a thoughtful, long-lasting favor for guests, as well as a pretty – and quite appropriate – decorative accent for the party!

Just finished an Asian inspired reception and I used Chinese Take-Out style boxes in the smallest size for favors. It was so simple and yet added a lot to the overall theme. Really liking the tall center vases with the wispy arrangement on that beautiful Asian runner.
