Adorations and Crown Weddings put together an elegant and vibrant setting for a bridesmaids’ luncheon overflowing with whimsical details and color. They began by finding a fabulous linen and complemented the bird print by creating a stunning flowering tree bursting with color and unique florals like the rare lavender clematis blooms that peek through the peonies, hydrangea and garden roses. Icelandic poppies and hand-carved mushrooms pop up from the green moss, and ribbon-patterned chairs and custom bridesmaids’ gifts complete the look.
Blackberry Fizz: 1½ ounces Hanger One raspberry vodka, ½ ounce Chambord raspberry liqueur. Shake with ice and strain into champagne flute. Fill with California sparkling wine and garnish with fresh Carlsbad blackberries.
