1 – They’re the inspiration. Design for big awards shows is adventurous, and usually very spendy. The organizers want “wow” factor, so designers stretch themselves and set trends. The hottest colors and themes trickle down- so a motif from the press check in table at the Grammys may show up on your escort card table.
2 – Goblets, and linens, and tables, oh my! Being in the SoCal area can get you closer to Awards Show inspiration. Many designers, not finding the “look” they need from existing stock at party rental companies, will have them buy a new pattern of glassware, create a custom linen, or even specially sized or shaped tables. Those items don’t usually disappear from inventory after the event, the rental company wants to make their money back.
3 – The Lifetime Achievement Award – Another perk of being a SoCal bride is that you have access to professionals who have experience at fabulous events. There are things that a designer can only learn at the Oscars. Lucky for our brides, the My Little Flower Shop staff has collectively done floral design and event planning for multiple years’ Emmys, Oscars, and some of the hottest after-parties like the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. That’s a lot of glamour, experience and flair we’re ready to put into your event. After all, on you wedding day, you deserve the star treatment. And even a little ole’ wedding is hugely important to us.
