A couple of weeks ago Dolce Designs Studio opened up the doors to our new studio space on Melrose Ave, and threw an opening reception for all of our former clients, colleagues and friends. The event itself was beautiful and the turnout – just what we had hoped for. It was a huge success!
Upon arrival, our guests were greeted by our staff before passing through a threshold of fresh green Christmas trees into a courtyard that we had tented off, filled with warmth, tasty libations, live music, and sweets provided by one of our favorite bakeries in Los Angeles; Cup Cakes Couture.
From the courtyard our guests were able to see our studio itself. Get a drink. And take in the environment for a while as they admired the setting we created through the huge store-front window of our studio.
Inside, the ceiling was covered with snow flocked curly willow branches covered with moss accented with recycled doors and windows that we hung as elements. Which complimented the table that we refinished and adorned with a wide range of live plants and cut flowers. A California Winter Wonderland collection of fresh orchids, Narcissus, Hydrangea, Parrot Tulips, Garden Roses, Mood Moss, Deer Moss, Monkey’s Tail, and Hyacinths – among others.
It was gorgeous.
With New Years on the way and the busiest time for brides and grooms to be right around the corner it was a very special evening for us. A significant moment of recognition and appreciation for the work that has gone into becoming the full service event production studio that we have become and the amazing response that has come of it.
When big things are happening it is way too easy to get caught up in them, as great as they are and not take a moment to step away, breathe, take in the scenery and appreciate the moment. This is something that we tell all of our brides and grooms to do on their wedding day. Walk a ways off, grab a bit of bubbly, and marvel at the loved ones around you and the moment.
So, in the spirit of this and the upcoming days we wish you Happy Holidays and the best into and through the new year. And if you need some support for any of your celebrations. Now or in the future. We’ll leave the porch light on for you, friends.
