corporate event at chateau des charmes winery

On Saturday night we had the pleasure of designing a 64ft long tablescape for a corporate excursion dinner at Chateau des Charmes Winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake ... we had so much fun with this!  

We were designing a very "Old World" look for this special dinner ... naturally, we pulled out our cork logs, acacia balls, mason jars with votive candles and some really awesome green swirl vessels. And our Twiggy lanterns were an absolute must to add some ambience to this outdoor event! The linens featured a deep merlot with gold filigree accent and moss napkins. 

For the floral colour palette, we designed in deep yellow, orange/gold and moss green using garden roses, oncidium orchids, pin-cushion protea, green hydrangeas, succulents, leucadendron and fresh moss. 

Special thanks to Kim and Catherine at Strategic Meetings Solutions for giving us the freedom to flex our creative muscles!

Bronwen + Mark: Niagara Winery Wedding at The Good Earth Food and Wine Co.

If you've never been to The Good Earth or met Nicolette Novak, it's an experience you must put on your 'to do' list when in Niagara!

The Good Earth is not merely a place to visit ... it is something to be experienced. A tranquil slice of heaven in the shade of the Beamsville Bench wine appellation of Niagara!

This weekend, Bronwen + Mark and their guests had a glorious chance to 'experience' the Good Earth for themselves! The couple were married amongst the vast gardens on the property and later celebrated in upscale garden party fashion with delicious delectables including wood-fired roasted pork and ... an oyster bar!

Side note ... Bronwen is the daughter of Rodney Clark of Toronto's famed Rodney's Oyster House.

Working with an organic and natural feeling green and white palette, we designed our pieces for Bronwen + Mark using flowers such as peonies, roses, hydrangea and viburnum. We 'garnished' our pieces with various cuttings from our organic gardens here at the Studio ... including lady's mantle, astilbe, fern fronds, mulberry springs and oregano.

Elements included birch logs, cork vessels, wrought iron Shepherd's Hooks and glass Mason jardinieres! There's nothing quite like an early summer outdoor winery wedding in Niagara ... you have to experience it for yourself!

Welcome to the Good Earth Food and Wine Company ...
