All Dressed Up In Silver and Gold
Floral and event designer Keith J. Laverty has an eye for elegance, no matter what distinct style a couple chooses for their event. Here he combined the saturated pinks, oranges, and golds of flowers in the bouquet and centerpieces of varying heights with mix-and-match table settings that sparkle and shine with silver and gold accents. The look is lush, luxe, and gorgeous in any season.
Romantic at Heart
White is often the essence of romance, pure and simple. Casa blanca lilies, blush dahlias, Queen Anne’s lace, and white ranunculus are made even sweeter by a fragrant gardenia at each setting. Laverty likes that the texture of the table linen further softens the scheme.
Moody & Modern
The deep hues of the mini calla lilies, roses, and hydrangea that make up this fireside setting are sultry and sophisticated — perfect for a nighttime event. Low candlelight flickering from quartz candleholders keeps the ambiance intimate. Laverty chose glass vases to show the stems as a visual element. Vases in the same shape but different sizes add a cohesive dimension.
