Its always fun to create Henna and Sangeet parties because there are so many colors and themes you can do. For this party we used traditional Indian colors of yellow and red and brought in a few tents and low wooden furniture and lanterns to give the Moroccan feel. The tents were made to look like bazaars and the guests were able to go inside to discover a plethora of fruit, arabic tea served and henna artists ready to design beautiful patterns on the ladies hands.

A few weeks ago when i was approached by a client to plan and design a table for a seated meal for some of her close friends, I was beyond excited. This client has become a dear friend and I truly enjoy working with her. We decided on Bordeaux and black with silver accents. After narrowing down on linens, I set out to design my table top. We paired the table with black chair dressed in Bordeaux pad cover and matching napkins.
Recently we had the pleasure of hosting an afternoon tea and fashion show at the gorgeous Beverly Wilshire Hotel. We partnered with some of our favorite and most talented people in the event industry to create something truly unique and memorable.
The afternoon began on the stunning Rodeo Terrace which, as the name suggest, overlooks the famous Rodeo Drive and is the perfect space for a cocktail party or ceremony. We wanted to create 4 separate tents that evoked a different feel and Revelry Event Designers created some of the most gorgeous mandaps and tents we have ever seen coupled with their custom made furniture that would make you want to shop in their warehouse. We created a faux ceremony area and the mandap was a plexiglass structure dripping in stunning flowers designed by the talented Eddie Zarastian of Tic Tock Couture Flowers-something people have never seen!
This past winter, we had the opportunity to collaborate with some great colleagues on this gorgeous winter wonderland shoot that is now featured in the Winter 2011 issue of South Asian Bride Magazine. We wanted to create an atmosphere that would perhaps suit the setting of Sweden’s Ice Hotel and this is what we came up with.
This was an invitation only dinner party that we did at a private residence where the former President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf, was in attendance. It is one of the most memorable events for us because we put it together in 3 days including tenting the client’s backyard for 200 people! Along with the former President, the Consul General of Pakistan, the Ambassador of Bangladesh and some very prominent American politicians, including Mr. Sheriff Lee Baca, were in attendance.
Quite challenging to say the least but it turned out stunning with the regal colors of gold and red.
Tents not only define a space but they are such a great way to add warmth, character, and color to an event. We love to use tents to create ambiance and nowadays you can make them out of any color, texture or design and with the right lighting, a perfect mood is created!
Enjoy some of our Exquisite Events with Tents!
