Hammond and Robyn's Rehearsal Dinner

by Jane

When my son Hammond married Robyn Swift in Palm Beach, Florida, you KNOW I did the Rehearsal Dinner flowers. We held the dinner at Cafe' Boulud in the Brazilian Court Hotel and Beach Resort in Palm Beach. The decor was all tropical - what else??? Oranges, and golds abound in that historic fabulous hotel, so that is what I chose for my color scheme, with a little brown interjected. Mokara orchids, three different orange roses, Uhule fern (fiddlehead) and aspidistra leaves to wrap inside the cube. For the cocktail hour, which was outside in the courtyard around a gorgeous old world fountain, I used roses only in frosted cubes. I think I achieved my goal - very current styling with a nod to the nostalgic tropical flavor of the famously elegant Brazilian Court. Menus, placecards and favor boxes were burnished gold and orange, detailed with Midori Dupioni silk ribbon!The lovely printing was done by 2BSquared Designs. Favor boxes held imported Belgian Chocolate shells and were wrapped with the dupioni silk plaid ribbon. It was a magical weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Working in our suite - above and below! It required flexibility. Just ask Chloe, my Yorkie. (No she didn't go to the wedding. The Brazilian Court is pet friendly!)
