Check out Shawna Yamamoto Event Designs' tabletop design for the launch party of Southern Asian Bridal Magazine!

The event’s main colors were fushia, turquoise, and white. We were asked to create something fresh and new. In addition, it was important that the tabletop spoke to what Shawna Yamamoto Event Design is known to create.
Since the magazine’s target audience is for Southern Asian couples, we thought it was important not to abandon the roots of the culture and what the moving trends are that we see and hear our clients ask for. Thus, we incorporated jewels, bold colors, unique color combinations, non-floral materials and gold. We used fabric and created a "chandelier" affect. Florals were minimalized and drawn down to the tabletop itself. Use of garden roses, tulips, mini calla lilies, and mokara orchids in matching hues created drama, deth and texture. The tabletop was surrounded by white lounge furniture so thus, prompted the placement of the white vases. We also used composite flowers made of rose petals and custom-made stationery from Details a la carte was placed on the table to complete the look.

Keep an eye out for these photos in the upcoming summer issue of Southern Asian Bridal Magazine!
