25 Inspiring Event Designers to Follow on Instagram

The photo-sharing site is an easy way for industry pros to share decor and design ideas and get inspiration from others.

In addition to enticing guests to share event highlights, Instagram is an ideal medium for industry professionals to show off their own work. The image-focused site is a key platform for event designers to share their designs as well as other projects that inspire them, and in turn provide inspiration for other industry insiders.

To that end, here is a subjective list of 25 accounts to follow for event decor and design ideas. (This joins an earlier list of event professionals of all types to follow on Instagram.) Of course, don’t forget to follow @BizBash too!

Inside the Sakara Life’s Desert Oasis Dinner Party

May 4, 2016

To get excited for Coachella, Whitney Tingle and Danielle Duboise, the dynamic duo behind the Sakara Life, a healthy meal delivery service, recently hosted a gorgeous desert oasis–themed dinner party. The Sakara girls teamed up with event planner and creator of Shabby Chic, Rachel Ashwell, and the Foray Collective to plan the pretty outdoor affair. “Having a theme usually provides direction and great inspiration. The Desert Oasis themed dinner was set in Malibu, California, and was an ode to the upcoming Coachella music festival,” Ashwell told us of the party. “We wanted the table to be pretty and natural but still embody a bohemian flavor.”

To pay homage to the lovely and whimsical clothing worn at the festival every April, florist Bess Wyrick of Celadon and Celery used sweet florals and lace trim to evoke the playful atmosphere of the event. “Mixing up pattern and texture on fabric choices and flatware is a great way to keep it interesting,” Ashwell said. “I added a white tablecloth with touches of crochet and lace, and I used assorted vintage plates and silverware for an eclectic feel.” Keep scrolling to be inspired by the Sakara Life‘s table setting now.

Guests enjoyed their  time dancing and mingling with the sexy crowd of talented bloggers and makeup artists. I am obsessed with Gwen Stefani! Growing up, I looked up to her for makeup trends because her look was constantly changing and evolving.

From her No Doubt rocker-skater-sexy-chic make up to Asian inspired looks and rocking bold bright color lips and shades at a time when no one dared touch! She is a trendsetter who is always pushing the boundaries of expression and what we considered beautiful and this partnership with Urban Decay was meant to be.

As the launch party kicked off, Urban Decay’s, Chief Creative Officer Wende Zominr spoke about the excitement of the collaboration with Gwen Stefani.

Unfortunately Gwen couldn’t make the launch party but with champagne and hors d’oeuvre’s flowing, a fancy cute photo-booth, a t-shirt screen printing machine to make your own free t-shirt, it was a success!

All the beautiful makeup bloggers were there checking out the makeup and at the end of the night everyone got their own goodie bag of UD x Gwen Stefani.

Have you checked out the UD x Gwen Stefani makeup palettes yet?

The blush palette starts at $45 and the 8 shades of lipsticks are fairly priced at $18.

UD | Gwen Stefani Collaboration is available at www.urbandecay.com & your local Sephora, Nordstroms. Check UD’s website to see where to pick up your palette today!

BTS of Create + Cultivate

March 6, 2016

If you’re unfamiliar with Create + Cultivate, let me break it down for you: it’s a conference + online platform for girl bosses in the digital space. Everyone from bloggers, to photographers, to designers, to small business owners were in attendance and even some wedding and event industry folks attended….ahem Marcy Blum!

Last year Celadon Celery came on board as the Creative Director for Create Cultivate. We are helping to bring the unique vision of the conference alive in each of the markets the conference pops up in. For Dallas we knew we wanted to it to be very different from Chicago so we went the boho, flower child route with lots of added flower and fabric elements. The space was perfect for hanging elements such as hanging chairs, gold diamonds, potted plants, and signs. We loved playing with the visuals and getting to work with vendors like Shabby Chic was like a dream! Working with them to create the overall finished look of our boho inspired conference really tied it perfectly together. They understood how important it is  that each of the moments we were creating enhanced the overall guest experience. Everything we curated needed to be photo ready. We spend a lot of time creating and curating that “photo” moment for our guests. Making sure that the conference is still generating content for our guests.
