Alchemy Fine Events’ 2013 Year End Wrap Up
2013 was an incredible whirlwind of a year! We got to work with some amazing clients, travel to some incredible locations around the globe, get our feet wet filming our first videos for E-how and push our boundaries even further. I even got the chance to fulfill my lifelong dream of becoming an art teacher by volunteering to teach drawing classes to kids at the Monarch School of San Diego with the After-School All-Stars. I am so blessed by the challenges that have come my way as they are making me so much more inspired and motivated to push even harder in 2014.
I am super excited about the adventures to come in 2014 including speaking in the Netherlands, working on a home decor line and really exploring my passion for modern, unique, fresh, colorful ways to make your life and it’s special celebrations full of style, beauty and grace.
Here’s a look back at some of our favorite moments of 2013.

Boho Glam Winter Wedding Table from the US Grant Bridal show
We recently created a design for the US Grant SWOON Bridal Show here in San Diego and was featured in the ‘winter’ ballroom. With a boho glam California winter wedding in mind, I created a free standing structure which I built and then mirrored to allow the ability to hang elements above a table whether it be in a ballroom or on a beach! With the panels being mirrored, it doesn’t block any views but really only enhances them by reflection.
To create the balance of boho, modern and glam at the same time, I wanted to infuse natural elements, fur, texture, shells and shine all together for a play on the senses. The talented Melissa from Pow Wow custom made this amazingly stunning macrame backdrop to order for this design, and of course can rent it for your wedding as well!
To create a zen-like feeling, I had a vision of having a floating centerpiece, so that no candles or flowers would touch the table but levetate above it. With our suspended shelves and low-profile softly hued floral arrangements by Isari Flower Studio we did just that.
For a luxurious start, we layered on custom fur place mats I designed on top of a lush leather table by Hire Elegance. We used a clean square china from Classic Party Rentals then we brought on gold and blue vintage-glam glasses, goldware & other magnificent table baubles by the lovely Farra at Hostess Haven.
