“I love it when a plan comes together” – Colonel Hannibal Smith (The A Team)
Yes, as cheesy as it might sound – but we do love it when a plan comes together seamlessly in a perfect collaboration. We had been itching to do a Marie Antoinette theme party since we set eyes on Sophia Coppola’s wonderful candy-coloured production of the classic (and lavish) tragedy of the last Queen of France.
Pastel colours and scrumptious pattiseries (provided by Laduree in Paris) highlighted the whole movie – and that’s where we got our inspiration and concept from 🙂 “Let Them Eat Cake” is the famous phrase which people believed were spoken by Marie Antoinette in response to the issue that there were not enough bread to feed the people of France.
Articulate Events teamed up with talented individuals in Perth, Western Australia – on one rainy Sunday morning to make this idea came to life. The image attached to this blog post was taken by an iPhone 4s and edited in Instagram. To view the professional photos taken by the talented Jonathan Pang, please visit his blog here.
Special thanks to the vendors who made this all possible! It is such an honour and privileged to have worked with such passionate and talented individuals – I cannot wait to create with you all again!
