We challenged 23 talented party vendors to design a party inspired by a USA location.
Stylish Soirées Perth chose The Hamptons as inspiration and designed a very cool and elegant bridal shower, that channeled the sophistication and coastal vibes of the area.
What made you choose your shoot location for United States of Party?
Hamptons style has become very popular in the interior design world. The classic coastal elegance and calming colour palette fits in perfectly with Australia’s coastline and relaxed living. I wanted to try and meld the two together. I’ve always loved the Hamptons look because it is luxurious yet still relaxed (I think the parties on Sex and the City were my first introduction to the Hamptons)! The white cladding, subtle and cool colours are timeless and instantly makes me feel like I’m on a summer holiday.
What inspired your shoot?
The movie, ‘Something’s Gotta Give‘! The house in that movie is my dream home (at a cool $41 million!). The colour palette is clean and fresh but still ‘homely’. The gorgeous white French doors and windows are my absolute favourite, so when I discovered the venue, ‘The Sunset Terrace’ in Scarborough beach, with floor to ceiling windows and amazing panoramic ocean views, I knew I could combine ‘Hamptons’ style with the beautiful Perth coastline. I wanted it to be stylish, yet still welcoming and warm. The combination of natural textures and the traditional Hamptons colouring was the perfect mix.
Did you incorporate any current party trends or DIYs in your shoot? If yes, what were they?
Balloon garlands are a massive favourite of mine and are definitely still a popular trend. Favor Lane party provided her top quality balloons and these framed both the bar and the arbour. I wanted the incorporation of the interior styling elements and furniture to play a major part, as Hamptons style is so well known. Tying in interior styling and furniture into events and party styling is another current trend and one that I love! The beautiful furniture from Maisey Collections and Little Pallet Co matched perfectly, tying in the white wood panelling and natural timber, along with the wire chairs and stools. The beautiful pale blue couch accentuated the coastal colour palette. The rose gold acrylic donut wall from XOXO design highlighted the yummy donuts from Cakes 2 celebrate by Lisa and added a hint of metallic. The amazing mini desserts, cupcakes and tarts were specifically themed to the ocean and coastal Hamptons. The amazing florals by Miss Bloomingbird on the bar and the dining table provided the backdrop for the divine catering by Pickled Pink Provisions, the delicious strawberries by In.dulge and the gorgeous rose gold tableware from Side Serve Perth. The magnum bottles of Rosé from Liquor Barons Duncraig matched perfectly with the rose gold and the ‘Rosé the day away’ signage.
