spring dinner { part 2 of 5 } : event design & flowers by poppies & posies

Sierra and Juliet of Poppies & Posies are straight up amazing. They create entire scenes and moods, sourcing all the antiques and textiles, building out structures, stringing lights -- all along with choosing and crafting beautiful floral arrangements.

Here's their description of the event concept and details:

We were inspired by the region of Provence. Not only the unfussy approach we associate with a traditional Provencal kitchenscape, but also the emphasis that is placed on the quality and choice of ingredients that are utilized in the making of a dinner. That theme carried over not just to the food, appropriately an 'ode to salt' by Michael Stuart-NY, but also to the design...

Instead of amassing huge amounts of decor to overwhelm the already beautiful setting of the Foundry's greenhouse, our aim was to keep things fresh, simple, and well executed. We sourced a vintage, grain sack table runner from a seller in Austria to drape the long dinner table and instead of building gargantuan centerpieces, the most beautiful blooms of the season, local spirea, hellebores, garden roses, parrot tulips, and sweetpea, were arranged in delicate compositions and placed on handmade, wooden, pedestals along it. Deep burgundy clematis vine peppered the arrangements and added just the slightest pop of color to an otherwise delicate palette. We were so excited when we came across a collection of vintage oil lamps to use on the table for candlelight. Simple, clean, and elegant: they we're the perfect finishing touch to our cozy dinner table.
