Inspirational Monday No. 11 - Escort Cards

Details are what make weddings memorable and one of the details we love love LOVE are escort cards and all the different ways of displaying them! We think table plans should be out and escort cards are the only way to go!!
Whatever the theme of your wedding is, you can incorporate such into the escort card display. Some sweet ideas, such as escort cards with lemonade drinks, honey and honey dipper favours, apples, hung on a tree, with scrabble and other little decorative items, vintage keys, sailing boats or placed on wheatgrass!

Here are escort card displays that we have done :

Backyard Garden Wedding at Repulse Bay

We are so excited that spring is upon us and all the beautiful flowers available lately!

Dina, a Korean bride & David, from Hong Kong met and fell in love in New York. They had a relaxed and fun backyard garden wedding at the Repulse Bay yesterday.

Heart the dainty delicate feeling of these Japanese white Spiraea Cantoniensis on our vintage typewriter!


For the reception table...


Our rustic ladder display for the couple's pictures.



Sweet tin watering can container.


Our favourite item of the day - escort cards hung with wooden pegs on twine sitting in a mini garden of flowers. Out goes table plans, escort cards are the only way to go!


Most darling blush Rose with Hydrangea, Ornithogalum, Spray Rose, Helleborus, Gomphrena and Maidenhair fern.


We heart little delightful details, mini succulents for the couple's place settings. These will also make such awesome wedding favours!


And the bridal bouquet with a mixture of David Austin Garden Rose, blush Rose, vintage Hydrangea and Ornithogalum. We adore the seasonal flowers - Snowdrops and Silene Vulgaris Greenbell, available only for a short period of time each year! Love how the soft colours and textures of the bouquet turned out.


To Dina & David, congratulations to you both and may you carry the joy of your wedding day everyday in your journey of life together!

Fun Baby Boy Shower

Hosted a baby shower last weekend at our studio with a theme of hot air balloon amongst clouds and raindrops.

We like invitations even if we don't receive a paper one nowadays.


Sign to welcome guests.


And tada, the dessert table...


We ordered some delish cupcakes with cute baby bootie and onesie toppings. 


At our last baby shower, these Hokkaido milk puddings received such good reviews that we suggested getting these again.


Bottled water with personalised labels and matching paper straws.


And a tea station for those who fancy a cuppa.


For decoration, we made some paper tissue pom pom clouds with strands of raindrops.


And our favourite item, a hot air balloon arrangement with bi-colour hydrangea, spray rose, sweet pea and muscari!!


The baby boy is due 3 weeks away but he decided to arrive a little early and came to this world the day after the baby shower!! Huge congratsss to Loretta and James on the arrival of your sweet little one!!

Luminous Emerald Private Dinner

Table design for a private VIP dinner showcasing fine Emerald jewellery pieces.


When designing the centerpieces, one of the first flowers that came to mind was ornithogalum as the dainty florets have rich dark green centers.


For each place setting, one of our favourite orchids - chic green & white lady slipper. Each was adorned with an emerald green crystal to highlight the theme for the evening.


Elegant mini white calla lily flowing out of slanted bubble vases.


Flowers inside and also cascading out of vases made things more interesting. We just love simple colour palettes with lots of different textures.


There are just so many flower choices and different ways in arranging them, fresh flowers really are the most amazing medium for creating memorable events!!

Rustic Peach Wedding at HK Country Club

Have been looking forward to this wedding for a long time and super duper excited to be finally sharing it!

Jasmine is a gentle and sweet bride who loves rustic details. We were excited about her vision not to mention the colour palette being one that we swoon over, peach and mint green! 
The reception was held at the Hong Kong Country Club, with a fun outdoor lunch reception on the lawn for friends and colleagues.

When we found out that the bridal car is a Rolls Royce, we suggested baby's breath garlands instead of those commonly seen car arrangements and can really say we love how they turned out!



We made chalkboard direction signs and placed them along the way to lead guests to the venue.


Upon arrival, a sweet floral path to welcome the guests.



A rustic glasshouse filled with jars and bud vases of flowers and kraft cardboard boxes for honeymoon fund on the reception table.



Next a fun ladder display of the couple's travel pics.


For the guestbook table, a genuine vintage mint Hermes 3000 typewriter {made in a Swiss and first introduced in 1958!!!} filled with flowers. We were quite chuffed when we overheard guys commented that the typewriter and the books are awesome (as we don't really expect guys to notice these things, lol).



We love escort cards, they are so much more prettier and fun than table plans. We came up with the idea of displaying them on rustic shutters and the bride had matching ones to the invites printed.


To make it easier for guests to find their escort cards, mini wood alphabets showed the surnames.


For centerpieces, a mixture of jam jars, milk bottles and mini bud vases of flowers filled the long tables. We love the bride's personalised table runners with the wedding logo embroidered on them. For the place settings, we tucked rosemary sprigs in the matching napkins.


Heart sweetheart table! Adorned with jars and bottles and also a set of lanterns. Flowers included an array of the prettiest peach and apricot garden roses, pink spray roses, chamomile daisies, dusty miller and succulents.


Last but not least, definitely the most popular prop of the day! The couple took pics with our mint green bike and giant balloons after lunch and a few guests also took turns to snap some shots. This can also be such a sweet prop for engagement photo shoots!


We were fortunate to be involved in styling this wedding, apart from the flowers, we also helped with aspects such as furniture rental and balloons, designed escort cards and table runners, sourced loads of sweet props to make the wedding completely unique and filled with the loveliest details.

There are always unexpected challenges in every wedding and the day before the wedding, typhoon signal was hosted!! It was really windy when we were setting up so we had to improvise and made some last minute adjustments. Fortunately the weather held up, there was even a little sun when the lunch started and all the guests had a blast.

Jasmine, thank you for all your trust and allowing us to be a part of your wedding. To you and Ian, congrats on tying the knot and we wish you two a married life filled with love and happiness!
