You may recognize the name Ethnic Essence from my show sizzle for Dug Up with Carly Cylinder. I met Smitha originally at a networking event in Orange County some years ago, and then met her daughter coincidentally who works for an event marketing company I was doing business with. I've also rented vases from her for weddings, so Smitha has definitely come into my life for a reason. You will be blown away by their work if you ever get to go to her studio in Orange County. They house thousands of linens, vases, and pretty much anything else you'd need for a wedding of event. Her specialty are over the top Indian weddings. I love that her blog is organized by color-- so fun to peruse!
I love the frames for the Skyy event. It adds elegance and class. I've never seen frames like this on a step and repeat before. Very clever. And of course, everything they do is lush and over the top. I'm not normally a fan of standard topiaries, but the mercury glass candelabra below matches the ceiling so well. I love the grapes and hanging amaranthus. The antique palette can be hard to work with at times because it can get lost, but the metallics of everything below work so well together.
Thank you Smitha for everything. You're an inspiration as a truly wonderful person, and as a woman who built her business from the ground up. Much accolades and admiration to you!
