spice of life

a favorite decorative theme that clients often asked for in the look of their event or wedding is the "Arabian" or "Moroccan". this would generally involve providing the look and feel of Arabia or Morocco through the use of architectural elements like symmetry, archways and geometric motifs. the details would incorporate the use of decorative items like glass oil lamps, silver vases, cushions, heavy fabrics and the all-important elaborate trimmings like tassels and palmettes. the color palette is also a significant element to consider. for clients who are partial to the traditional look, we would pick a color range that would reflect the colors of spices--bright, vibrant hues of yellows, reds, and oranges. often enough, we accomplish this through the use of brightly colored flowers! for those leaning more to a softer updated feel, we would pick a palette more subdued like the one we used for the ethereal experience last december, for example. of course, there are no rules etched in stone for that definite Arabian or Moroccan look. for this recent wedding reception, we incorporated both the traditional and modern for a look that is as unique as any of the experiences we created.
