Party in the USA: Fourth of July Tablescape

With the Fourth of July fast approaching, we designed a fun & festive table setting to serve as inspiration for your Independence Day festivities.

Keep reading to learn the details!

We started by hand-making our very own red, white and blue balloon installation to hang over the table. The 6’ table was covered with textured off-white linens and had modern white dining chairs, providing a perfectly clean canvas for our red and blue accent pieces. We used silver flatware, gold-rimmed charger plates, patterned blue plates, and small white “PARTY” plates for the place settings, and finished off the look with picnic-inspired red plaid napkins, American flag pinwheels, and vintage glass Coca-Cola bottles--because what’s more American than that? We decorated the table with bowls of blueberries and strawberries to add some more pops of red and blue, and finished with white vases with American flags coming out the top. With all these little details, we really made sure this table setting said “USA!” from top to bottom!

We just loved the simple Americana vibe of this tablescape and we think it’s perfect for your Fourth of July party!

The Ranch Laguna Beach Wedding - Erica & Mikey

Erica and Mikey

The Ranch Laguna Beach

Erica & Mikey’s wedding at the Ranch in Laguna Beach was breathtakingly beautiful! The natural bohemian style with edge embodied the couple perfectly in creating wow moments that would be memorable to them as well as their family and close friends. Some of our favorite elements were Erica’s custom leather jacket, the gorgeous burgundy toned bougainvillea accenting the ceremony arch by The Bloom of Time and the couple incorporating family and friends into the ceremony. Erica’s mother and brother walked her down the aisle where the couple exchanged handwritten vows from their custom vow books as the ceremony was officiated by one of their closest friends.

It was such a special day that we were happy to share with Erica & Mikey, not only with Jenny as their Wedding Planner but also with Taylor as Maid of Honor.

We hope you fall in love with their love story as much as we did in the gorgeous photos from Studio 7 and their captivating video from Shimazu Video.

INNOCEAN Holiday Party 2015

This year we went back in time and created a Modern Speakeasy. The event was held at Hotel Maya in Long Beach and we wanted to do something completely different. We went with dark brown leather tufted couches and clean white lounge furniture to combine the old and the modern elements to the theme. The twenty-four foot long wooden bar was covered in candles and whiskey bottles, which our flair bartenders helped bring to life with Old Fashioneds and fun cocktails. Another major focal point in the room was the custom black and white diamond printed vinyl dance floor which was breathtaking! The all white stage with oversized stairs down to the dancefloor wasn’t bad either ; ). To complete the look, we added Edison Bulb Walls as the stage backdrop to really bring the theme together without obscuring the gorgeous ocean view. Guests were greeted by an incredible Jazz Band and literally danced under the stars with the custom designed vintage star breakout patterns that covered the entire tent ceiling. It was for sure a night to remember.

INNOCEAN Holiday Party 2014

This event was a dream to plan at Hotel Maya in Long Beach! We started with their Lagunita Pavilion which is an incredible blank canvas tent structure which made the creative possibilities endless. We worked with our client on a theme that the event would revolve around and we chose outdoor Nightclub! The colorful lighting and ceiling patterns were one of the most important features that really transformed the space. We designed wooden cabana lounge areas and included daybeds around the dance floor. The string lights helped to bring the outdoors in and complemented the modern drapery on the cabanas perfectly. We created a custom square bar so guests could easily grab branded cocktails all night long. Topping off the night with amazing live performances by a Dubstep Pianist and Break Dancers. Creative and fun clients are the best and we love working with this client every year!
