Asian Fusion Wedding Ideas

Reminiscing, about Wendy's own Lunar New Year family dinners, she was ultimately motivated by two of the most popular Chinese porcelain patterns that her grandmother had throughout her childhood. One design features the traditional rich reds and gold color palette. Inspired by the vintage Chinese Mun Shou Longevity porcelain pattern. Red represents happiness and joy. Therefore, red is traditionally used in all Chinese celebrations from weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and many more milestones as it represents happiness and joy. The second, more modern design features a muted modern palette; using various tones of pinks and blues. The Ching Tung blue and white porcelain pattern was the inspiration behind this tablescape and dessert table as its beauty has also captivated the hearts of those in the West. The French call it "blanc de Chine" and it's quite on trend again. There are various blue and white porcelain patterns which lend themselves to a Chinoiserie feel in design and decor right now. The various pieces of the floral and decor can be easily reinterpreted for a bridal shower, baby shower or even a water color or pastel color themed wedding.

Wendy's continuous inspiration is derived from her clients' cultural backgrounds, their individual tastes and impeccable styles. Hence the company name "Asian Fusion Weddings." It brings her great joy to be able to infuse their wishes into one creatively detailed and cohesive design; whether it be a gathering at home, an intimate affair or an extravagant wedding. Wendy's key ingredient for designing any celebrations is to maintain the color scheme, use a variety of textures and remember what the purpose of the event is all about.

Gung Hay Fat Choy! I wish everyone a healthy, wealthy and prosperous new year.
