Pink Papaya Events and Adrianne Smith Floral came together to design this 1920s, French Art Deco tabletop. It harkens back to the opulent epoch at the Hotel Del which is where we shot the setup. The deep purples, blacks and white conjure up the image of a nightclub in Paris. The centerpieces are full of violet antique hydrangea blooms from Holland that rest in cast iron urns and surround a Deco-styled cake. As a finishing touch, sparkling antique bracelets serve as napkin rings and hold a fan shaped menu.
RASPBERRY MINT JULEP RECIPE:

Place the mint and simple syrup into your Julep cup. Muddle 10 times to release the oil and aroma of the mint. Pour in the vodka and crushed ice. Stir briskly until the outside of the glass frosts up. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a raspberry.
