The Wedding Industry Professionals Association of SoCal is a group of the elite of the wedding industry. Annually they put together a luncheon and design challenge showcasing the latest trends in design for their guests to experience in a live setting. When asked to be a designer The event was titled "Somewhere In Time", and the challenge themes included Old Hollywood, Roaring 20's, and Garden of Eden to name a few. I was hoping to challenge myself to think outside of the box and do something complete unexpected. For that reason we chose Egypt. Our inspiration was the Nile River with it's lush vegetation and regional plants and flowers. It was important to bring the land of the Pharaohs and all of it's riches to life.
Another reason I loved this theme is because the Nile River was home to native plants that included The Lotus Blossom and Lilies. Hence our name and the reason why this challenge was so appropriate for us.
Thanks to the amazing sponsors who shared in my vision and worked so hard to bring my dieas to life:
