We are kicking off the new year with some bold colors and fresh patterns.
Palette: Shades of Teal and Poppy with pops of pastel pink and bright orange. Sharp patterns and textures.
Mood: Edgy, Tropical, Refreshing

Recipe: 1.5 oz vodka / 1 oz coffee liqueur / 2 oz heavy cream
Freeze coffee in ice-cube tray. Place ice in a highball glass. Add chilled vodka and coffee liqueur. Pour cream on top. Let cocktail settle on its own or stir with spoon. Enjoy!
I created and styled a cocktail based on our most recent concept board, Bold Fun. Since it is hard to find purple drinks (but I will try lavender vodka soon), I used a dark drink to pull in the black shades from the board. The soft purples were incorporated with florals and my lovely nail polish.
As summer is in full swing, fashion is already looking to fall. So why not combine the two? This week, we took bright summer colors and paired them with rich fall tones. Enjoy!
Palette: Soft peach and purple pastels, along with a dark, warm purples and rich reds. Hints of black are used to anchor the palette. Organic shapes and structure.
Mood: Rich, shapely, linear, fun, energetic

This week I grabbed a few props and dishware to create a tablescape to coordinate with this week’s concept board, Feeling a little Blue. I experimented with fabric from Fancy Tiger Crafts, dishware from our cupboards, paper gems I crafted a few months ago, and a modern menu I whipped up. Boom! Clean, simple, and blue.
We love using and exploiting the principles of design, especially Repetition, Rhythm, and Pattern. In our most recent backdrop we explored these principles and created this lovely, ombre teal design.
Repetition In art, repetition is the recurrence of a particular line, pattern, shape or other visual element in a single work or a series of works. It is often used to establish authority or meaning for a particular element.
Each individual diamond was hand painted, hole punched, and strung up into a grid system. We used a total of 203 diamonds (…but we painted a bit over our target number. Better safe with extras, a lot of extras!) Although there are various lengths and shades of teal, the consist shape helped create this simple, yet intricate backdrop. Up-close our backdrop can look like there are a lot of little pieces, a lot of noise, but when you step back and place people or props in front of it, the backdrop creates a beautiful color palette to place things against. Like bowls full of ice cream, for that detail shot!
Love this backdrop? We, ENLY, custom create them for weddings, parties, dinners, and what ever else you can think of. Shoot us a message if you want to learn more!
