Guests were treated to a sneak peak of the new Body Revolution Pilates Studio at this pretty garden party. The invitations provided the perfect inspiration for the decor – paper lanterns with fuchsia ribbon tails. We used uplighting to make a particular feature of bamboo growing in the garden, and also used fresh bamboo poles in large garden pots to hang the lanterns from. Uplighting and the gorgeous carbon-filament café lights were set up by the very amenable folks at NiteLites. Picking up the invitation’s color scheme, orange gerbera daisies, blue hydrangea, fuchsia dianthus and citrus green alchemilla created some very colorful floral decorations, including a cute burlap pocket arrangement for the front door. Ibiza Bites served up a delicious, light and modern summer menu, presenting dishes such as Georgia peach & heirloom tomato gazpacho, and wahoo cerviche. Sweet desserts were provided by A Piece of Cake. Despite threats of thunderstorms all afternoon, the weather gods were kind and the evening passed by without any menacing rumbles. To tunes from the likes of Rod Stewart, Diana Krull and Norah Jones, a loud and lively evening was spent socializing, networking and ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the beautiful new pilates studio!
