Last saturday JG produced a gorgeous wedding at Pier 60. We B'Dazzled the venue with crystals, sheer fabrics, diamond beads, lush florals, and more CRYSTALS!

Escort Card Table was a reflection of the ceremony while adding some elements of glamour. A lush bed of rose pedals were laid a top of the table with LED lights which enhanced the table decor. An arrangement of branches with floral accents and floral arrangements were placed as the focal point of the table.

The ENTRY HALL was accented with a combination of glass cylinders with candles in varying heights and was embellished with graceful sheer draping in three sections down the hallway.

Cocktail arrangements were set with low, lush arrangements in shades of blue, lavender, and ivory florals.

Guests faced a stunning ethereal FOUR POST CRYSTAL STRUCTURE during the ceremony. The structure was dressed with clusters of lush white, ivory and cream floral decor with soft touches of silver and light blue. Crystal hanging votives hung on both sides of the structure in varying heights that gave twinkle effect.

This photo was taken before the aisle runner was rolled out for the big moment. The biginning of the aisle was framed by two gorgeous arrangements that were intertwined above creating a beautiful arch. Tall white glass vases and clear plexi columns gave a great height to these two arrangements.

The Reception Dining Table centerpieces were composed in tall clear cylinder vases with lush florals in shades of white, ivory and light pink. Cascading crystals were draped from underneath and was surrounded below by multiple petite arrangements. They were adorned with a gorgeous combination of the finest pink florals in multiple shades. Three beautiful crystal votives tied the theme all together!

Jes's spoon sculpture hanging from Ceiling.

We wanted to soften up the space with wood(farm table provided by Party Rental LTD.) yet continue with the modern & Clean look to go with PFD's furniture design. Can you guess what the runner is made out of? YELLOW Vinyl edged with white gaffer's tape. HOT right?

50 water glasses were hung from ceiling by the strings of ribbons above the PFD's 18' long custom made bar.

Little bit of Country and Rock & Roll

Vanderbilt Hall is a magnificent event space at New York City's historic Grand Central. It has a 48 foot ceiling with five gold chandeliers that glimmer against original pink marble surfaces.

JG had a great pleasure of working at Vanderbilt Hall last week.

We brought modern chic design into the Vanderbilt hall by bringing in white and chrome furniture and organic centerpieces to dress up the tabletops. Our centerpieces were composed of freesia, agapanthus, ranunculus, veronica, hydrangea, dalias, callas and tulips.

Stems of freesia, agapanthus and ranunculus in varying height sandblasted vases were our favorite centerpieces of the night.

Two sets of lounge vignettes were placed through out the space to provide comfortable seating areas for the guests. Sleek white and chrome highboy runner tables with fruitwood Chiavari bar stools provided places for guests to enjoy their food. Check out Taylor Creative's beautiful furniture pieces!

Do you notice unique food display done by Pinch Food Design.
Congratulations to Pinch Food Design on their very first event!

Poppy Flower by Coach

Once again, JG transformed Estee Lauder's white conference room into a beautiful showcase space to represent Coach's new Fragrance, Poppy Flower.

Ad images of the model and the bottles were printed on duratrans to fit into 10 light boxes. ** Duratrans material is a translucent base color transparency material designed for producing large transparencies for backlit displays.

The conference table displayed two varying sizes of the fragrance bottles and lush floral arrangements down the center of the table.

Floral arrangement inspired by the fragrance bottle was composed with light pink and cream peonies, poppies, dusty millers, sahara roses, and ranunculus.

We put a smile on everyone's face with the gorgeous peony favor tied with custom made Poppy Flower ribbon :)
