Another fabulous collaboration with the HUNKIEDORIË Blog! Take a look at all of the inside details of my staging and styling process from this year's BUZZIË BRUNCH.
The BUZZIË BRUNCH is a curated event planned to bring friends together for a good cause, support local businesses and enjoy great conversations over the perfect Bloody Mary or Mimosa!
| FLOWERS |
This year, I purchased the florals for the brunch at Trader Joe’s in Bloomington, MN. I've found they have the perfect variety to choose from, giving me the freedom to bring the inspiration board Emmie shared with me to life!
| TABLESCAPE |
To maintain the garden party theme, it was important to me to build a tablescape of varying heights and textures. I created this look by mixing colorful vases of varying heights in vintage and textured glass, a collection of fresh florals, and eclectic place settings.
| Tablescape Tip | Vases do not have to match - I like to choose colors that coordinate with the decided color scheme and look for little details to give the table a unique factor. The combination of several different flowers and greens added volume to the table as well.
The beautiful pink, blue and white color scheme was inspired by Emmie’s collector tea set. Emmie and her mother are the best at finding vintage pieces and have continued to build up their collection over the years. The combination of her family dishes and thrift store finds made for the perfect table setting.
| PLACE SETTING |
Placement is key to a beautiful display. I grounded each place setting with a light pink charger, followed by a scalloped white plate, topped off with a vintage floral saucer and tea cup. A new addition to the place settings this year were white, custom embroidered napkins featuring Hunkedorië’s bee logo.
I added little hints of the bee throughout the tablscape, adding an element of surprise. The glass trays introduced a gold accent, making the entire setting feel ultra feminine and helped the bee collectables to stand out among the other design elements.
| BEVERAGE BAR |
One of my favorite features of the outdoor space this year was the Bloody Mary & Mimosa Bar! I selected dishes of different heights and colors from the HUNKIEDORIË collection, which were used to display all of the playful food elements guests were invited to use to customize their drink of choice!
| COLOR PALETTE |
Another important factor of staging a beautiful party is to keep the color scheme consistent throughout the space. In this case, the colors were featured in the tablescape, the Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bar and of course, the gorgeous balloon display Emmie created.
Thank you for following along! I hope you've enjoyed an inside look at this year's Buzzië Brunch and have discovered a few PRISTINE tips & tricks for a Summer gathering of your own!
