Wendi and David’s Wedding in Ceremony Magazine, San Diego

Great to see Wendi and David’s wonderful wedding featured in Ceremony Magazine’s San Diego 2014 edition. Thanks to Susanne Duffy of Crown Weddings who brought us in to install the lovely Grand Pavilion and Pergola wedding tenting at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, California. It was a beautiful day with long vistas of the surrounding hills, verdant greens of the immaculate ground and lovely English roses against which the Honey Glow and Orange color way of the tenting really stood out. Thanks to Jennifer Cole Florals and La Tavola Linens for making all look so perfect!

Engage 13 at the Montelucia

What a wonderful week at Engage 13 at the Montelucia Resort and Spa in Phoenix last month! Rebecca Grinnals and Kathryn Arce have created something very, very special on so many levels. As well as a place to learn, gain insights and pull back the zoom on the Wedding Industry to get the big picture, it is exceptionally nurturing on a personal, emotional level. Seeing old friends again and making new connections in a dynamic, challenging and supportive environment was a real privilege.

The attention to detail was immaculate from registration at the start to the over the top closing night Gala. Just want to express my appreciation to Todd Events for design and décor; Suite 206’s great furniture; La Tavola for their lovely linens;  Dazian Fabrics for the stage and gala draping; Angelic Grove, Butterfly Petals, Blume Events, Wild Child Floral Design, The Flower Studio, Lux Florist, Table Tops Etc., Flora Bella and Todd Events for the fabulous florals; then all the delightful goodies we got from Gifts for the Good Life, Arak Kanofsky Studios, Taylor’d Favors, The Birthday Party Project, and Checkerboard; West Coast Music – especially for the spectacular 20-something piece band for the Gala; Design Sound and  PSAV for the sound and vision; I Do Films, Elysium Productions, Chellise Michael, Scott Clark Photography and Elan Artists (pictures on this post courtesy of Elan Artists) for the beautiful videos and stills.

Moroccan Themed BarMitzvah in San Francisco

It was great to work for Ken Fulk Design again for an extensive BarMitzvah installation at the Regency Center in San Francisco. Downstairs, in the ballroom, a frame tent structure was lined with a Celeste-Blue gold star lining with multicolored drapes. On each side there were Pergolas set up as Kasbah vendor, entertainment, lounge and bar booths. Corridors were framed and decorated with Raj Tents Mughal Arch walls leading to a smaller ballroom set with multiple Pergolas. Upstairs in the fabulous Masonic Lodge, Mughal Arches backdrops to the buffets and furniture around the dance floor carried the theme through. Our favorite part was the Flame Red Gold Star print custom canopy made to go around the large iron chandelier in the Regency Center’s atrium. Many thanks to Billy Picture who pulled all the logistics together!


Décor Treatments – Ideas for Entertaining at Home

Part of the enjoyment of having a lovely home is to be joined by friends and family on occasions you want to mark with a celebration. Raj Tents’ range of thematic décor, furniture, lighting and accessories can turn your familiar home into a surprise party setting for all. Wall treatments using our different color combinations of Mughal Arches pack a big punch, providing color and a strong theme. With appropriate lighting and low seating vignettes, your home gets an instant makeover. One of our favorite ways to add character for your party is to attach ornate scalloping valances on walls, trellises and pipe and base to establish a strong, colorful horizontal line. There are so many pictures to choose from our many home décor installations – I hope you enjoy these ones.
