Event Design: Elegant Lavender & Silver Baptism | St Gregory Armenian Church, San Francisco

I was hired to do the event design for a Baptism last month that took place in an Armenian church hall in San Francisco. Instead of going for the traditional pink as the color scheme, we chose to do Lavender and Silver. We wanted the reception to look elegant and classy. Since the hall offered rectangular tables, I decided to utilize those and create a long spread with high and low florals and candles going down the middle. The linens were a beautiful lavender silk shantung that added a richness to the tables. Lush Event rentals provided the silver chivari chairs and chargers. For the flowers, I really wanted lavender colored hydrangeas, however since they weren't in season I ordered white hydrangeas and hand spray painted them with a tint of lavender color. I loved the simplicity of having the tall centerpieces with hydrangeas and roses and the lower centerpieces just roses. I had these beautiful mercury glass vases from a past event that I was able to utilize.

I also created the invitation and favors for this event. I knew I wanted to do some type of hanging favor to put on the chivari chairs, so I ordered lavender boxes and added the same tulle that was from the invite to create a handle. I also added a rhinestone detail and tag. They came out looking like mini handbags. For the dessert table, I carried the theme of the lavender tulle and created pom pom balls to hang over the dessert table.

Setrak and Taline, congratulations on your daughter's Baptism and thank you so much for hiring me to do the decor! She is so precious!
