Today marks the Lunar New Year and we get to play part in the celebration by delivering all kinds of prettiness in top trending shades of Ultra Violet, plums, purples and pink. Celebrated annually, the Chinese New Year is a period that last for 15 days leading into the much-anticipated Lantern Festival. If ever there was a wedding planner that knows how to bring out luxury in epic design with her eye for detail it's Wendy Lee of Asian Fusion Weddings and Formosa Events. Delivering not one, but two show stopping editorials highlighting these festivities while showcasing ideas that can be translated into a magical wedding day. This is the second of our two-part series, where their two designs were created to be complementary and interconnected. This duality gives reference to the Yin and Yang philosophy and is captured by Pepper and Light.

Prettiness in Top Trending Shades of Ultra Violet

The overarching vision for the shoot was to weave Eastern and Western design threads together, to form a modern interpretation for the Lunar New Year. Featuring high end designer luxury items in jux-a-position to mainstream ones it creates a Ying and Yang viewpoint. While also presenting old traditional elements with a fresh modern twist. The first shoot showcased a masculine vibe focusing on 2017's Color of the Year, Greenery, but this one is pure femininity. With pink and green being complementary colors on the color wheel, this hue was the obvious color choice for the table top design and gives the opportunity to tap into Pantone's 2018 color, Ultra Violet. The pink and purple table top showcases an abundance of pretty florals by Jackie O Floral Events Affair. Blooms are significant over the Lunar New Year as it represents the start of another life cycle. Usually blooms on trees signify the ability to bear fruit symbolizing abundance for the new year. This table represents a more traditional style of table. The flatware, China and charger plates were from Bed, Bath and Beyond while the glassware were from Ikea. Again, this table was meant to demonstrate what you can do with your own existing items that you might have received from a bridal shower or as wedding gifts. Decorating does not mean that you necessarily need to rent all your items. You can mix and match what you already own. Layer by layer, the level of intricacy in each detail of this prettiness in top trending shades of Ultra Violet would make any invited guest swoon far beyond the Lunar New Year.
