In Haiti, handmade things are very common due to the fact that affordability to other foreign non handmade materials is very low.
It is a shame that all though there is a huge promotion on handcrafted items now in Haiti, in general some tend to overlook or should i say undervalue handcrafted items.
Anyway, this whole contract made me think of an article that the Queen of Decor Martha Stewart wrote in 2009..... that would be five
( 5) years ago; her views on weddings has been exceptional all through the years..... . As things evolve, i sure think that we as human beings should certainly evolves as well, but we also need to keep it extremely real:<< Just because something is in style does not mean it suits your need>>.
Here are a couple of Paper Decor, that i feel still has it's place in 2014. It 's all about Presentation and Display. To avoid any tacky outcome.. make sure to let an expert handle the way it's put together.
1- Everything paper.
The colorful backdrop is layers of fluttering garlands, the poles can be covered with silk ribbons as well, the balls and filling of the vases are all paper.
2- A paper chime : choose two (2) colors preferably that represents your taste and hang it all over.
These paper mobiles make perfect sense at a wedding. The colors, shapes and movement will create
a joyful, uplifting vibe.
3- Paper Balls.
Design flowers differently, cut
them like little fans, put them
together, and voila, a beautiful,
original Paper Flower Ball.
Whether you think that paper decor can be used in 2014 or not.... the fact remains that a Wedding Decor is meant to reflect the bride's and groom's journey to each other, their common style and individual personalities all at once. Everything can be combined, the old, the new and everything in between ....... Being able to think out of the box, is one of an Event Designer's biggest Asset.... Being able to creatively combine it all is to be Gifted.
