Whether you are planning your rehearsal dinner, anniversary party or simply want to host a dinner party to thank your friends for their love and support – Christy Snowie of To La Lune Events has you covered with this thoughtfully planned “You Shape Us” soiree. Christy creatively mixes various textures and shapes with soft whites and moody hues making for a modern romance design that is sure to give you tons of inspiration for your next dinner party!
 
Says Christy, “I’m in pure heaven when I get to design for intimate dinner parties! With the idea of being shaped by those we love, we chose to incorporate a variety of shaped details throughout the table top design. One of our all time favorite elements being the organic cubed pyrite guest favors! To soften the edges and bring in the romance we adorned the table with the most stunning hand crafted table runner by Laura Stewart Design and a lush centerpiece by Catalina Neal Floral Design that was textured beautifully with creamy white ranunculus & blooming hellebores. Our Jen Wojcik captured every bit of detail to perfection!”

Beautifully copper scripted coasters and napkin ring place cards by Twinkle & Toast added the perfect personalized touch to the tablesetting.

The pampas grass backdrop adds sumptuous texture and warmth to the modern setting.

If you don’t have time to cook or would rather not deal with party clean-up, hold your gathering at a local restaurant and bring the details with you! This soiree was held at Bencotto Italian Kitchen in San Diego who also provided the delicious food including this Gnocchi Dish.

Bio:

A Southern California native, with a love affair for all things creative.

I believe a little party never killed anybody and if you smile amazing things will happen.
Most importantly, every person is a new door to a different world.

Christy is the lead designer and coordinator behind To La Lune Events. After graduating from The University of California Santa Barbara, she went on to pursue her curiosity and love for the wedding industry. A self starter at heart, Christy followed her passion into entrepreneurship creating To La Lune.

To La Lune Events is a boutique wedding design, coordination, and styling studio passionate about making your big day one of a kind. We are located in the sunny beach town of Encinitas and serve all of Southern California. Rumor has it, we have a bit of a travel bug and an infatuation with airports, so no destination is too far!
