May 20, 2011 - Fresno State Honorary Doctorate Dinner

Fresno State graduates celebrated commencement this past week.  Along with commencement the University also celebrated it's Honorary Doctorate recipient by honoring him at a dinner held at the University House.  We wanted something that was light and airy but still sophisticated and polished.


We draped our new white bubble linen over the podium table and placed a new "mirror" vase in front filled with white and grey flowers.  My heart was racing with pure happiness when I did this arrangement!


The guest tables were draped in our champagne pintuck overlays.  We decorated each table with hand blown recycled glass vases filled with all white flowers.


We pulled in a touch of the turquoise with our "Luna Bazaar" votive cups and new miniature mirror tiles.



We used cream hydrangeas, cream "David Austen" roses, lisianthus and champagne spray roses throughout.



Over at the bar we topped two of our mercury glass candle holders with fun cream and grey arrangements.



The cocktail tables each had a blue hand-blown vase with creamy hydrangeas and white lisianthus. 



To grace the appetizer table we designed this taller arrangement with dramatic long calla lily's, cream parrot tulips and creamy hydrangeas.



To greet their guests we added a few tall candle sticks with lower mercury glass mint julep cups filled with flowers.
