CITRUS-INSPIRED 2DAY LUXURY ATHENS CHRISTENING
2-DAY PRIVATE VILLA LUXURY BAPTISM IN ATHENS INSPIRED BY MEDITERRANEAN CITRUS GARDENS AND COMPLETE WITH VIBRANT FLORA & FAUNA DETAILS
Dreaming up of the perfectly curated event to fuel your warm-weather reveries? This 2-day private villa luxury baptism in Athens, inspired by Mediterranean citrus gardens and complete with vibrant flora and fauna details is just the thing with a zing! If anything we love sprucing up all our events with zesty, fun, colorful and luxurious details, so when our clients came to us looking for a playful but also dashing luxury baptism theme we stirred clear of anything juvy and focused on making this christening reception something exquisite.
Ah you know the old adage “life is short, squeeze the best out of it”? Or maybe this is so 2021? We mean, 2020 taught us that longing won’t simply do, it’s actions that matter. This 2020 luxury event was all about squeezing the day, so we brought fragrant citruses to action. Vibrant, tangy, and oh-so-refreshing, they set our creative cells in motion. For us at DePlanV luxury wedding inspiration (and luxe baptism as well), begins alfresco, and since our nature and life loving couple adored the idea of a citrus grove and a farm garden we made sure everything looked absolutely dreamy.
THE LEMON STAIRWAY – For the entrance, six opulent urns filled to the brim with blooms and citrus trees welcomed the guests, while punchy colors added to mother earth’s bounty and brought that Mediterranean vibrancy to the fore at this Ekali villa.
THE MEDITERRANEAN MARKET- We drew from fresh, punchy, and colorful Mediterranean markets to conjure up our own slice of heaven right in the manicured lawns of our couple’s private villa garden. Pairing fresh citrus produce with sunshiny, delicious veggies rendered seamless results with gorge flora overflowing out of vintage hand-painted fruit baskets, platters, and carts.
GUARDIANS OF THE GARDEN -Butterflies and merry decorative fauna arrived to top our scene, while wild herbs like lavender, as well as tomato & zucchini trees, sprouted out of Mediterranean pots. Animalia statues and pretty garden follies created a true spectacle and became the little honorary host’s guardians.
A COLORFUL FEAST – There’s no Mediterranean feast without having guests talk up a storm about how stylish, fun, and flavorful the experience is that is why we went a level above in designing the reception tables in porcelain of all kinds, flora, and fauna imbued dinnerware, curios, and glassware that channeled the sunshine and the flavor delectable grab-and-go’s 2020 called for. Opulent arrangements and seasonal fruits maxed the beauty, while provincial notes of linens and rattan placemats made the luxurious fete slightly more relaxed.
THEMED TABLES – Each table was set by theme (Little Tomato/ Baby Zucchini/ Pumpkin … all names innovatively alluding to the little bundle of joy calling names) where the respective veggie set the tone.
GOODIE BAGS PLEASE- Gifts for the guests included custom-made goodie-bags and pouches, where seeds, treats, bookmarks, sanitizers, and towels were all created to match the setting.
THE ZESTIEST PARTY- And what is a perfect soiree without music? We sweetly serenaded the day with live performances, till the candle-lit night by the pool was turned into something extraordinary with strings of fairy lights above, and fairy lanterns hanging from the garden trees. A sea of candles across the entire villa facade and among the garden shrubs made the entire scene look absolutely magical!
