Black, White, and Modern - THE EVENT

I am so glad to share photos of the floral decor I designed for this "Black, White, and Modern Event" held at Atlanta's exclusive Twelve Hotel Atlantic Station!

Thanks so much to Lemiga Events for planning, coordinating, and providing inspiration for the entire event, and to the very talented Blue World Studios for capturing ALL of these incredible images on today's post!

The client's request for his 30th Birthday Black Tie Event was to have decor that was modern, masculine, and dramatic in a black and white color palette.

White carnation pomander ball balanced on a black, contemporary vase.

7" White carnation pomander suspended in a 47" clear, cylinder vase.

White sofas and ottomans added a luxurious touch.  And I always love an excuse to use my White Nylon Spandex Chair Covers!

Additional Accolades to I Do Linens for creating the luxurious Custom Designed Linens.

The Birthday would not have been complete without the gorgeous Birthday Cake by Sugarplum Visions!  The cake was balanced on a glass sheet supported by 2" clear glass cubes arranged in a geometric pattern, containing single carnation blooms.

Black, White, and Modern - INSPIRATION BOARD

"Black, White, and Modern" is one of my favorite themes, so I was extremely excited to be invited to design the decor for a Black Tie 30th Birthday Party held at Atlanta's exclusive Twelve Hotel at Atlantic Station!  

Here is the wonderful inspiration board created by Lemiga Events.
