Pattern Play

Patterns, along with color, abound this season.

I love the chain link and stripe patterns in the Trina Turk Home boutique windows. A jewel tone color palette of sapphire, aubgergine, and garnet make a strong statement for winter party decor.

I especially love the bold combination with the black and white link upholstery. It is a surprising twist of mix and match patterns, which creates a unique and thoughtful decor story…not the typical singular repeat throughout the space.

Can anyone say…cocktails? This begs for a party set with chilled martini shakers.

Cheers.

Color in Winter

As Chicago gets pounded with a winter snowstorm and morning suburban earthquake…I walk along the midcentury mod North Palm Canyon Drive downtown Palm Springs.

While soaking up the winter sun I am sourcing 40s era decor and retro inspiration for the upcoming Flapper Era transformation at A Perfect Event in April.

Window after window drip with glam Hollywood Regency style. From glowing oversize black crystal chandelier to Kelly Wearstler-esque shiny red vinyl barrel chairs…an abundance of color sets the stage.

These sorbet hued French Louis chairs are divine, non? How fun for a new twist on the 70s disco party we are throwing in May.

Cheers to decadent decor for your next celebration.

The Sweetest Valentine



The Sweetest Valentine, originally uploaded by Debi Lilly of aperfectevent on flickr.

Has your countdown for your valentine begun?

I am feeling the pressure this year – as the holiday falls on Sunday –
giving over the entire day to a romantic, extended celebration. Eeeek!

So in case anyone else feels the same, I will try and design my day while
assisting you with yours.

First up, my favorite, tasty, tiny treat. I don’t think words or even this
gorgeous photo of our Bloomingdale’s truffle tea party decor can do these
ANY type of culinary justice.

My new BFF Candice opened http://www.cacaobakery.etsy.com right here in Chicago.
She sent us a box of her signature Cake Truffles, and for my entire staff
it was love at first bite. These tiny little decadent truffles are moist,
soft, dense cake inside, then dipped in melted chocolate for the perfect
finish.

I cannot oversell the Lavender Chocolate flavor. She served them last week
at our big Bloomingdale’s Pre Wedding Party – displayed in stacked tiers
with several other flavors for a Cake Truffle Tasting Bar at our Engagement
Cocktail Party vignette. I haven’t stopped getting emails about them –
clients have been dreaming about them in their sleep.

The best part is this, she uses organic, all natural ingredients and can do
almost anything gluten free. All hail St. Candice!

The other best part is that she ships all over the country! Gotta love
etsy.

For your valentine, for your next party, wedding, birthday…for
everything…enjoy!
