“Winter is Coming” in July – Whose Idea Was That?? Blueprint Studios!

Blueprint Studios, famous for their creativity in event design, put their own skills to the test today – they invited the wedding professionals community to their warehouse to present their new collections with a typically creative event: “Winter is Coming!” (in July…)

What that is? Leave it to the Blueprint creatives… serenaded from the mezzanine,

guests were¬†treated to a “cabinet of curiosities” – whimsical wintery tablescapes..

dining set-ups…

and lounge vignettes..

were competing for attention with more “July” (Hawaii??) themed groupings…

… and any creative “fusion” in between! What about a white Christmas tree adorned with fresh orchids…

or a tabletop variety composed entirely of cocktail paper parasols?!

Nothing is impossible at Blueprint! And their new collection is so fresh and different! I couldn’t get enough of even their chair collection…

and a lot more, as listed on this menu card:

plus chargers in any color and style you can think of, to round out their tabletop offerings… and if you are still not convinced…

This incredible rainbow of colors – that’s their drapes!! I think that’s pretty unbeatable. Draperies in salmon, copper or lilac. I found my “Aladdin’s Cave!”

The “eye candy” was complemented by “culinary candy” provided by Componere..

… a company that spearheads culinary creativity even in its very name – “componere” is Latin for “to compose, to create.” Which they did – fresh mini tortillas filled with squash blossoms,¬†accompanied by Patron cocktails in mini bottles…

and, my favorite, dark chocolate shells with a liquid blackberry filling. Divine!!

As of today, I am an official fan of “Christmas in July.” And of Blueprint, of course!
