November is almost over and throughout the world people are celebrating autumn and the fall harvest. Holidays like Thanksgiving in the U.S. and olive festivals around Italy inspire us with warm colors, fruits and leaves, as well as feelings of togetherness and gratitude. What a perfect way to start the winter and the hectic holiday season. Happy harvest to you all.

Borgo Santo Pietro was the location for this three-day birthday extravaganza, including a lemon and herb BBQ, a vibrant red and orange dinner party and the main event - a Fifty Shades of Grey birthday gala. Quite a scandalous scene if you ask us, but super-chic nonetheless!

This wedding at the Castello di Vincigliata actually took a little bit more effort than usual to pull off. Why, you ask? Well, the beautiful bride and groom requested to have both the ceremony and the dinner in the same courtyard! And so our fantastic team completely change scenery during cocktail hour, all without any of the guests knowing a thing! The change-up was a success and as you can see, it was well worth the extra elbow grease!
The ceremony includes an antique stone and iron chuppah completely covered with cascading flowers and greenery, including stephanotis, and the entire stone-floored courtyard was topped with grass. The dinner centerpieces were a mix of classic and modern, yet thoroughly elegant. Hope you enjoy!

Buongiorno! Today we have a group of events in prestigious locations around Florence and Venice.
All of the decor works beautifully to highlight the characteristics of each location, like the black and white marble windows of a Renaissance landmark reflected in the striped table linens, or the colors of the gorgeous frescoes echoed in the flowers. Chic lamps offer a modern twist, providing light in a space that restricts the use of candles, so as to not damage the priceless artwork. Olive trees fill a raw, brick-covered space, while sunset colored ranunculus and fresh herbs create a sense of warmth and the promise of spring.
Turning the tables on traditional art theory, where nature inspires art and architecture, this time it's architecture that inspires!

This wedding at Villa Cora can only be described as pure "fairy tale". The bride, like a princess. The flowers - royal purples, sweet lavenders and lilacs, pure white, with just a touch of the palest pink. Crystal hurricanes and mercury glass votives sparkled in the candlelight and.....everyone lived happily ever after.
