Fall Weddings: Inspired by Marsala

Fall weather is in full force and we’re feeling so inspired by the deep colors of the season. The experience of the outdoors, the amazing weather, and the beautiful sights have in turn converted into an obsession with the feeling of sophisticated, natural earthiness. That’s why this week we’ve decided to focus on how to bring that feeling by incorporating Marsala – the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year – as an accent color or hue to your next wedding or event design.

Marsala is a bold yet dynamic color, so there’s no right or wrong as to how you can use it in an event. Whether you use Marsala as an accent on your tabletop design, as the unifying color that ties everything together, or as a more neutral and background element to the table, you can make it work while evoking different emotions to your guests. The impactful and full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used primarily on its own or as a strong accent to other complementary and contrasting colors. This tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a level of organic sophistication.



Marsala on a table top:

If you’re thinking Marsala-theme, you’re probably thinking Marsala table top, but what to do to make sure it looks great and brings that seasonal feeling to your guests? The key here is in the contrasting accents. You can choose one complimentary and one contrasting color and use different elements of each. For instance, in this particular setup we used our Purple Velvet and Plum Velvet linens from our Elegance Collection as a complimentary color to the Marsala-accented baroque glasses and the various red-shaded laces, flowers, and candles. As a contrast, we incorporated some golden elements such as the silverware, plates, and candle holders. While the colors can be interchangeable, try to find the balance between the different elements. And if you want to go with a Marsala tabletop, make sure to check out our Marsala-inspired linen palette below. Finally, to neutralize the palette, we intentionally set up right next to a green vine on a brick wall. If you’re trying to play with a more baroque look on an industrial space, this could be the perfect look!

Marsala to unify the design:

For those who love the outdoors, but are looking for that sophisticated, natural earthy look– this casual, farm-to-table style will be the perfect one to host your guests for those daytime weddings and parties that extend towards late night gatherings with friends. Here, we make use of a reddish-brown toned wooden table to get the Marsala as the foundation color and then keep a naked look with accents that will create contrast while setting a more earthy and grounded atmosphere that people can relate to. Our Taupe Victorian Lace Runner runs through the axis of the table, dropping on both sides and serving as a boundary for the boho-style flower arrangements, rusted yellow vintage glasses, and a few other intricate details. We then have white plates with copper and silver-lined silverware overlapping and blurring the boundary between runner and naked table. Finally, setting the table in the middle of a (well-shaded) outdoor area with tons of greenery will make the arrangement magical and dreamy and will ensure to be a lifetime memory for your friends and guests.

Marsala as a background neutralizer:

If you want to channel your inner Gatsby and let it loose, this 1920’s-styled table provides an ornate and lavish atmosphere, perfect for a formal gala or tuxedo required event. The sparkly, Champagne Sequin Taffeta provides a clear contrast with the Marsala and black background on the walls, yet the delicate and light lavish arrangement certainly tones down and provides a more lively space for guests to engage in conversation, meeting new people and creating new connections with each other. Simple and classy, this particular design incorporates champagne and gold-colored silverware, glasses and candles to go along the bright Taffeta linen, while the backdrop and the flowers provide a delicate and elegant contrast.

Island Chic: A Conversation with Arquetipo

Dreaming of escaping to a tropical event paradise? Well, so are we… at Nuage, we always are so excited to work with new and different partners across the globe, so when Arquetipo got in touch with us to help them with an island chic concept event, we were thrilled to join in!

Arquetipo worked with the Inner Circle Experience to design concepts for all the different events taking place across the conference. Between informative conversations, tropical lunch setups and a few galas, the entire spectrum of events was shown off. It was so fun for us to collaborate with their design sense using several of our linens and chair covers to really highlight the innovation fueling the Inner Circle Experience attendees.

While there, we also took the opportunity to sit down with them and get to know a little bit more about all things Arquetipo, including their experience working with Marc Anthony and Martha Stewart and how the island influences their tropical design aesthetic. Read the full interview below!

New York Bridal Week: The Knot Gala

New York Bridal Week has been taking place this week and what a better way to celebrate than by throwing a stunning gala at the New York Public Library? As usual, The Knot gala takes the cake as the hottest party in town this year, and we are so excited to have been a part of it with a fabulous A+ team of industry superstars, including the event design and production by Always A Bridesmaid and with invitations by Ceci New York.

It’s such an honor to be involved in designing this, what is notably one of the best industry parties, with such a great team of professionals and partners. The creative process was extremely collaborative as we worked closely with Always A Bridesmaid to put together the linen options based on the palette composed of purples, blues, and gold. The result was a combination of dreamy and ethereal colors and themes, and of course the most awesome people in the industry!

Fall Inspiration: Southern Outdoor Wedding

Fall weather is here, and with it so are beautiful outdoor weddings. Haley & Jeff’s stunning wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation in historic downtown Charleston, NC perfectly combined both of their personalities–Southern staples like cotton pod boutonnieres for the groom and beaucoups of sparkle for the bride. From the pink champagne tower to the blush-hued sequin-covered linens and the feminine blooms by Branch Design Studio, this affair orchestrated by Pure Luxe Bride is the perfect mix of glam and romance. With dual “His + Hers” outdoor lounges on the sides of the clear-top tent, the gentlemen’s featured a combination of tufted leather sofas, iron chandeliers, and a cigar station, while the ladies’ lounge boasted vintage white settees, a white chandelier, and a touch-up bowl with lipstick and mini perfumes. We are just so obsessed with all the beautiful details of this fabulous affair–magically captured by the talented Dana Cubbage–showing us an amazing inspirational example of how to go with a soft look during this vibrant season.

From The Wedding Row:

We’re tying the week up with a wedding so full of steal-worthy inspirations it’s almost too much to handle! Haley and Jeff’s wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation was a perfect combination of their two personalities—plenty of Southern touches like cotton pod boutonnieres for Jeff and beaucoups of sparkle for fun-loving bride Haley. From the pink champagne tower to the blush-hued sequin-covered linens and the feminine blooms by Branch Design Studio, this affair orchestrated by Pure Luxe Bride is a perfect mix of glam and romance. Our favorite bit of this dreamy wedding, you ask? Why, the dual “His + Hers” lounges of course! Flanking either side of their clear-top tent were two smaller tents, the gentlemen’s featuring tufted leather sofas, iron chandeliers, and a cigar station and the ladies’ lounge that boasted vintage white settees, a white chandelier, and a touch-up bowl with lipstick and mini perfumes. Amazing, yes? Top to bottom, this beautiful day captured by Dana Cubbage has stolen our hearts. Congratulations, Haley and Jeff!
