We are thrilled to see this gorgeous tabletop from our LUXE Launch 2017 featured in Grace Ormonde. Click HERE to see the feature. We have an exclusive Q&A with Colette Lopez and Kaitlin Lopez of La Fete Weddings. See more below:

Luxe Linen: What was your inspiration behind your design?

La Fete Weddings: We wanted our table to reflect the natural beauty of Santa Barbara both in color and architecture, the place where we call home. We wanted to bring a piece of that effortless elegance down to the heart of Los Angeles. We were also inspired by all of the beautiful fresh spring flowers that are currently in season and wanted to showcase them at their fullest potential. We decided to add a soft blue (Dawn Amalfi) linen underneath our overlay to add a subtle pop of color & then introduced all the flowers in soft sunset shades.

LL: Can you tell us about your design collaboration and process with your team?

LFW: Once we had decided on our theme, we began searching for the elements we wanted to incorporate.  On the tabletop we introduced textures that reminded us of Montecito, such as terra cotta pottery, glossy white ceramics and copper/rose gold touches. Then, we went searching for an element that would make our table design feel as if it were under a large trellis on an estate.  Revelry Event Designers provided the perfect wood beam structure that was not only gorgeous but very large & stately.  They also provided beautiful custom painted stucco walls for our backdrop to add color & texture, which made it  appear like the structure was against an old Spanish or Mediterranean style estate. The light fixtures and chairs from Revelry added the final touches to create an intimate dinner party theme.

LL: What was the most unexpected element that you added?

LFW:  We loved all the layers of textures & how beautifully it all came together. From the gorgeous linen we were given, to the geometric copper chargers, and the macrame coasters stacked on top of the plates.  We also added layers of sisal rugs which lightened up the space and added to overall design. When stumbled upon the enormous wooden cabana while walking through Revelry’s warehouse, we immediately fell in love. We wanted a wow factor that would stop people in their tracks & this structure allowed us to accomplish that. We decided to drape it in a soft dusty peach chiffon & then Revelry created custom “stucco” wall panels to present the feeling of being outside of an old tuscan styled estate.

LL: What is your favorite part of the tabletop?

LFW: Our favorite part of the design was definitely Camellia Floral Designs flower arrangements. She always creates a stunning masterpiece with her arrangements & we were truly blown away by the focal florals that she added to the cabana.

LL: How did being given a linen impact your process?

LFW:  We really feel that we were given one of the most gorgeous linens in the collection, so it was a joy to work with the linen that was selected for us! We were very excited when we first saw it and knew that we wanted to stray away from what would have been expected with that linen- we wanted to punch it up with color and give it a Spanish Santa Barbara flair.

LL: How did Vibiana as a space impact your design?

LFW: In our opinion, Vibiana is the perfect venue for this showcase. Not only is in the heart of the city- but the inside is a perfect blank slate to design in. You could put any style inside that space and with the right decor & lighting it is completely transformed. We were able to load in & strike within their guidelines and opted for battery operated candles to abide by their rules and were happy with the overall results.

1) What was your inspiration behind your design?

JC: I wanted to do something different, and give the effect of the floral spilling from the chandelier onto the tabletop and onto the floor, with the cream and golden yellow of the floral, representing light.

2) Can you tell us about your design collaboration and process with your team?

JC: This collaboration with Luxe and the rental and glassware/ china company was such a pleasure. We had such freedom to choose whatever rental items we wanted! So fun! Crown weddings helped pull it all together!

3) What was the most unexpected element that you added?

JC: We added the amber chairs, because they were clear but still had the element of warmth and light…to go with our concept.

4) What is your favorite part of the tabletop?

JC: The flowers spilling from the floral tower onto the floor, and yellow. No one uses yellow. A Highly underrated color!

5) Is it exactly what you envisioned out to begin with?

JC: Design always changes a bit, that’s the freedom of not having a client to answer to. the strung orchids on the ceiling were a last minute change because you couldn’t see them from the backdrop…

6) How did being given a linen impact your process?

JC: The linen is fun to try to design around, and a challenge as well. It makes you think.

7) What is the reaction to the new LUXE Linen line?

JC: Gorgeous as always!!!

8) How did Vibiana as a space impact your design?

JC: Those ceilings and the lighting there were a huge bonus! You have to be dramatic in that space, or you would just be lost!

This Luxe Launch tabletop, titled “Modern Masterpiece”, was created by A Good Affair with floral design by Nisie’s Enchanted. A Good Affair wanted to create a marble wall with living arrangements on it as the focal point of the design. Using a 2017 trending color palette of greys, lavenders, purples, and greens they created a romantic design that perfectly complemented the rose gold sequin linen.

The team used our Paisley Nude Linen as an overlay with our Champagne Iridescence Linen as an underlay. They were perfectly paired with our Blush Iridescence napkins.

The LUXE launch is one of the wedding and event industry’s most anticipated events, serving as a trendsetting and networking function for top planners and designers. Now in its fourth year, The LUXE Launch is a tabletop showcase featuring the company’s latest linen collection. Each designer pairs up with a florist of their choice to create any tabletop and theme they dream up. This year, we interviewed Bottega Louie – a luxury pastry and design house that created a gorgeous spread of macarons and sweets for the occasion.

LUXE Linen: What was the inspiration behind your design?
Bottega Louie: We were inspired by airy, simplistic spaces decorated with tropical plants. We wanted graphic lines and clearly defined negative space to allow our pastries to shine.

LUXE Linen: Can you tell us about your design collaboration and process with your team?
Bottega Louie: We started with a mood board and inspiration images of floral arrangements. Once we narrowed down the look, we enlisted Leslie from Rebelle Fleur to develop the florals. We had an in-person meeting with her to discuss the shapes, containers, color palette, and flower species. After the centerpiece design was set, we regrouped to brainstorm how to echo the floral color palette throughout our pastries. We selected specific macaron hues to reflect the tropical species and pastries that would complement rather than distract.

LUXE Linen: What was the most unexpected element that you added?
Bottega Louie: The floral arrangements were the most unexpected element of our table, because we typically use a very different style of arrangements with our pastry tables.

LUXE Linen: What is your favorite part of the tabletop?
Bottega Louie: Our favorite part was absolutely the floral arrangements. They added the graphic touch we needed to frame our pastries.

LUXE Linen: How did being given a linen impact your process?
Bottega Louie: The linen we were provided with was selected to be within our brand colors, so our pastries could be the main focus of the table. Cindy chose a white linen for us with a lovely pleated texture that added dimension to our table.

LUXE Linen: What is your reaction to the new LUXE Linen line?
Bottega Louie: The new LUXE Linen line is a vibrant addition to the collection, and it truly showcases the personality of the company. Planners, designers, and brides will easily be able to select a linen from this line that will elevate their event.

LUXE Linen: How did Vibiana as a space impact your design?
Bottega Louie: Vibiana provided a beautiful backdrop for all the tables. The architectural details and dramatic ceilings added an elevated atmosphere for each table to shine within. While our design was not influenced by the space, we certainly feel that the venue heightened the experience of the event.
