Okay, when I saw the pictures for today submission I almost fell out of my chair. So don’t look at today’s feature in a rush. Grab a cup of coffee and skip the sweet, because there are enough little morsels of goodness to satisfy anyone's sweet tooth. Nikki Khan of Exquisite Events teamed up with the Four Seasons in Westlake Village and hosted “An Evening of South Asian Traditions.” This dynamite décor is drop dead gorgeous, and it is filled with “steal worthy” ideas for your own wedding. Whether you use them for your Mehndi, Sangeet, or Reception, I know this is one feature that Indian brides will refer back to for a long, long time.
So, enough yapping and let’s get started. Take a look at this welcome/cocktail area. These ideas would also translate outdoors, and can be used at any of your wedding events…
From Nikki Khan at Exquisite Events : This was one of my most favorite events. A formal entrance was created to enter the foyer where staff from Exquisite Events welcomed guests clad in sarees and passed out floral bracelets to each lady guest. Guests then entered the foyer entertained by Shahnai sounds and were served Lassi. The foyer was decorated using Raj Tents and their low furniture. There were couture linens on the cocktail tables and chair covers. Guests were served tray passed appetizers that consisted of gobi manchurian, samosas, stuffed mushrooms and chicken kababs. The ballroom was opened to reveal the most decadent decor and to the sound of tabla, sitar and bansuri. A large " X " was created in the middle of the room and each section had 32 chairs with different cover all in aubergine color. The tables were dressed in champagne gold. The flowers were in jewel tone and lighting was all done in shades of amber, pink and lavender. There were unanimous " Wow's " from the guests. A decadent buffet was served under Raj Tents with delicious assorted Indian desserts. Guests were given mithai as parting favor.
Okay, check out this dining room décor. How creative is this X shaped table? It is unbelievably chic with a touch of royalty…something that is just SO Maharani. I could easily see this idea being used at one of your smaller events, and I this would look great outdoors. You could even make a bunch of small X tables to accommodate 16 or so people. The possibilities are endless!
