I’m impatiently waiting for Pantone to release the Color Of The Year for 2015… I have a feeling it will be a wonderful blue shade, what do you think?
In the meantime, here’s an inspiration board that I created for The Country Friends‘ Spring Luncheon in May that celebrated their 60 years. Radiant Orchid was the main color and the entire vision came to life around it.

I was asked to participate in Ceremony Magazine‘s 10th Year Anniversary at gorgeous Rancho Las Lomas and I offered to provide delicious treats to the attendees of this fabulous event.
The location was the ideal background for amazing tabletops, beautiful people, and lots of food and drinks. It was an evening to remember!
I designed a fun mini donut bar that received a lot of attention throughout the event. The lavender linen and lace overlay by Sweet Ribbon Events gave the table a soft, natural look, and Jennifer Cole Florals embellished the station with galvanized buckets of gladiolus, roses and irises to give a farmer’s market feel. Thanks to Sensational Treats, we gave out hundreds of mini donuts topped with chocolate, sprinkles, caramel, and more! Keep the donut station in mind when you want to add that “wow” factor at your event or wedding reception :)
Congratulations to Amy and Jim Harrick for a fantastic publication, I am proud to be part of the Ceremony Magazine family :)

You know how obsessed with colors I am and today, even if I see gray clouds from my window it’s a happy and colorful day! Pantone released the Fashion Color Report for Spring 2015. The runways at the New York Fashion Week last month saw a move toward the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum and I love every single shade!
From left to right starting at the top:
- Aquamarine – Airy blue with a dreamy feel
- Scuba Blue – An invigorating turquoise
- Lucite Green – A soothing green shade light in weight and also in tone
- Classic Blue – A shade that inspires calm, confidence and harmony
- Toasted Almond – A sun-tanned neutral
- Strawberry Ice – A subtle and charming shade
- Tangerine – A juicy, energizing shade
- Custard – A delicious and delectable yellow
- Marsala – A sensual and bold tone that serves as the foundation of the Spring 2015 palette
- Glacier Gray – An unobtrusive gray that contrasts and enhances
- Dusk Blue – A nostalgic shade that gives a sense of calm
- Treetop – A healthy harmonious green which offers a reassuring presence
- Woodbine – A tropical green that can be used with anything and everything
- Sandstone – A stable and grounded shade that has a warming presence
- Titanium – A basic gray shade that has classic appeal
- Lavender Herb – A shade rich in nostalgia that adds a surprise to the Spring 2015 palette
My favorite one? Hard to choose but I would probably go with Strawberry Ice, I’m a huge fan of berry shades and I think they go with everything. Also, the neutral Toasted Almond and Sandstone are great!

What a fantastic day! The 2014 Art Of Fashion was a huge success last Thursday at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. Andrea Naversen, the Art Of Fashion’s event for this year asked me to be the Luncheon Chair and it was a marvelous experience, not only because it was a privilege to be part of the cause but also because I had a chance to work with her. Andrea is an amazing woman, tireless professional (like me!) and full of life and energy! For those who don’t know Andrea personally, here’s a recent article that I’m sure you will enjoy.
The Art Of Fashion is the biggest annual fundraiser for The Country Friends, a Rancho Santa Fe non-profit organization that has given more than $12 million to help fund local charities supporting women, children, the elderly and people with disabilities. I have been a proud member since December 2012 and I absolutely love it :)
Presented in partnership with South Coast Plaza, the Art Of Fashion included a Pre-Show with boutique shopping, a fun photo lounge by Pro Motion Entertainment, Champagne and dessert tastings. The Pre-Show was followed by the Runway Show and the lovely Luncheon on the Croquet Lawn. As Luncheon chair, I envisioned an outdoor French Garden in a palette ranging from Pantone’s Color of the Year Radiant Orchid to lavender and rich purples. Tabletops with lavender overlays and purple napkins were enhanced with lavish centerpieces by world-renowned Rene van Rems and beautiful lavender sachets as favors. Sachet tags and table numbers were provided by Dolldine Designs.
After the Luncheon, attendees stayed for the Apres Affaire with more boutique shopping, wine, cheese and dessert tastings including my good friend Grace from La Reine Des Macarons.
