Studio Member Wildflower Linens ~ Arizona Grand Opening

Studio Photographers

Katrina Wallace and Andrew Mejia, of Sedona Bride photographers, were asked to photograph studio member Wildflower Linens’ Arizona grand opening.  It was a glamorous event where leading Scottsdale designers including studio floral artists Jim Bullock and Ken Heflin, of Events By Show Stoppers, created table displays employing Wildflower Linen samples.

The highlight of the evening was a style show of couture gowns fashioned out of table linens by Wildflower’s creative team.  The fashions were displayed by striking models strolling down a runway adorned with a beautiful rose petal carpet, also made by Events By Show Stoppers.

The rose petal carpet was designed with a retro feel that suggested a Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass window. Contrasting colors of coral, pink and golden yellow made the grid.  The design of the chair backs worked perfectly with the design of the carpet.  The turquoise colored programs popped against the white cushions and the color of the runway.

Top floral designers were asked to design table displays incorporating their favorite Wildflower Linen for the many event planners, designers and coordinators in attendance.

This table was designer, Ken Heflin’s, Victorian themed setting that played off of two concepts.  He commented that in Victorian times, various plant and animal species were brought to England and displayed in spectacular glass structures with lovely architectural glass domed roofs.  These first conservatories were like elaborate greenhouses and held exotic plants in controlled environments.

Glass domes were also used in the Victorian Era to display fragile crafts, clocks, collectibles and fauna.  The designer cleverly decided to marry the two ideas.

A hand-blown glass dome served as the designer’s own controlled, living environment.  Inspired by the times, Ken created a mesmerizing world within the dome using interesting, curious natural elements.

Vintage mercury glass vessels were used for votives and accent flowers.  Replicas of crowns were used for additional floral details.  The vintage style linens were provided by Wildflower Linen.  Antique etched compotes and wine glasses finished the look.
