Afternoon Tea Party

Afternoon Tea Party

Although we love what we do at Grazie Gifts, we love event styling too!  We have had the honor to help many brides plan their weddings, organizations plan successful events and recently our local Catholic Women's League plan their first Afternoon Tea Party!

It was held at St. Philip Catholic Church Hall in the lovely historical village of Richmond this past May.  The event features decor pieces that brought out the event's theme "GOD IS BEAUTY".  The menu and beautiful musical performances completed the atmosphere for the afternoon.

We made the centerpieces using artificial flowers.  This was a request of our client, so that they can be used for future events.  The lace overlays added elegance and completed the table decor, giving it an Tea Party afternoon feel.

We had some gorgeous pieces loaned to us by Angelina Wrona of Anarchy Gallery in Merrickville, ON.  Beautiful statement pieces, like the above multi-stacked tea cups and saucers.  It was quite the conversation piece.

We were extremely lucky to have worked with a group of women for the CWL committee that loved garage sales, and boy did they ever find some exquisite pieces. This tea cup and saucer set was my favorite.

I work for an Event and Wedding Planning School, and I always tell my students that being present and observing the event unfold is what will make you a successful event planner.  If you don't know what doesn't work, how can you fit it next time?  We were fortunate enough to have been invited to sit and enjoy one of the Tea Party seating. 

The musical performances were beyond our expectations.  I can not stop singing the praises of musicians Lucile Hildesheim and Peter Stuyt. 

We enjoyed working with the St. Philip CWL and are looking forward to next year's event.  What is the Tea Party's theme?  Well, that will have to remain a surprise....at least for a bit. ~ Anita, IEWP

Thinking Outside the Confetti Tulle

Thinking Outside the Confetti Tulle

There have been many brides we have encountered that would love to incorporate the traditional confetti almonds (and what they represent) into their bomboniere arrangement, but they don't want tulle circles. 

We love a challenge!  So, we created a couple of different styles for them to choose from.  We wanted to create something that on it's own is a beautiful statement.  Any of these designs would be a lovely touch to your guest's table setting.

These designs allowed us to still incorporate the traditional 5 candied Jordan Almonds.  We understand that maybe the bridal couple may have guests with nut allergies, so in that case you can always replace the almonds with colored jelly beans.

We had an amazing time working with Breanna of Floral Reef Designs in North Gower.  She outlined some beautiful florals and greenery fillers that we can use, that can withstand the handling, storage and timeline of our client's orders. 

Thinking outside the box can open up all kinds of creative juices.  You can take old tradition and add a new twist!
