A Moroccan Fete

Olga Earle and I were very excited to host a meeting for the Association of Bridal Consultants last week! Olga is the owner of La Belle Reve--a beautiful bridal salon in downtown Bellevue. We hosted the event at her shop. Although it was a tight fit, we were able to transform the room in to a Moroccan themed event. Swagging draping, pillows, lanterns, champagne cocktails, tapas and a night of entertainment!

Olga and I put our heads together and designed this event and we wanted to bring the hottest trends of 2009 into play as well. Color is a huge trend of 2009. We found ways to bring lots of color into this event--through the food, entertainment, linens, drinks and lighting. Lighting makes a huge statement when trying to create a feeling. We hosted a fashion show of some of the most colorful bridesmaids dress of 2009 as well. Our models were absolutely stunning and did a great job! And what would be a Moroccan Fete without a belly dancer!? Oh my! When Nadira started dancing she was captivating. The room was in total silence...until she unleashed the interactive part of the performance bringing a few good sports up on stage to teach them how to belly dance! The whole room echoed in laughter. Needless to say the event was a huge success!
Here are a few photos..
