Graduation on the Bluff

After years of hard work, sweat and tears Heather finally got her masters from UCLA’sArchitecture and Interior design program… and was ready to celebrate! Wanting a gorgeous outdoor brunch with ocean views she had selected the stunning Montage at Laguna Beach to act as the lovely setting for this celebration. 

It was the perfect afternoon for her friends and family to gather on the Studio Lawn, while servers tray passed Bloody Mary's upon their arrival. Prior to be seated for brunch, guests were excited about the mimosa buffet that provided colorful berry and melon options to add to their champagne. Handmade tags were hung from the carafes labeling each of the fresh squeezed juices. 

The luncheon tables were draped with the gorgeous Brooklyn Nude linens, from La Tavola, which created an elegant yet fun sparkle to the setting. Lush arrangements filled with Dahlias, ranunculus, garden roses, and maiden-hair fern accents were set in gold mercury urns and helped complete the stunning setting.  At each place-setting, coral and peach dipped Rice Krispy treats in the Letter H, provided a tasty favor for guests to enjoy later. A diploma rolled paper was placed on top of each of the gold beaded chargers and was actually prints of different interior designs that Heather had sketched out. We provided color pencils and guests colored in the sketches and signed them to create a coloring book for Heather to look back on! We hand crafted custom sparkly petite graduation hats in gold, black and coral, that everyone got a kick out of wearing! They were the absolute perfect accessory and even looked fantastic on the men!

The afternoon ended with a loving toast given by Heather while standing next to her charming gradation cake that we designed to match her party dress! A three tier cake in shimmer fondant with stripes and polka dots and topped with the perfect mini grad hat was the ultimate finale to a festive and fun afternoon.
