Jacquie and Alan are hands down one of my favorite clients to work for. They are so generous and loving and really I consider them to be dear friends. This event was for Alan’s work dinner and we did a “Taste of Pasadena” theme. The food was heavily influenced by some of our combined favorite food options the city of Pasadena has to offer.
This was one of my favorite tables I have done in awhile and loved the orange and green colors. For floral arrangements we stuck with an orange and green palate and I incorporated fresh herbs into the floral arrangements to add a little rustic Italian Al Fresco dining experience. Jacquie has a huge collection of Glassybabies (which I am quite envious of) so every time we work together I love to incorporate those on the table as well. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I do!
