Globetrotting Decor: Greek Island Inspired Wedding Decor Ideas

“Our Greek inspiration came from the nighttime hillsides of the Islands. It came from visions of the weathered wood of old boats, the weave of fishing baskets, the lighted windows shining from whitewashed walls of clustered villages, the cerulean of the dome church roofs, greenery growing wild and touches of the natural and cultural elements seen throughout the Mediterranean. There’s a certain elegance to be found in sheer simplicity and in the plain beauty of a landscape. That kind of elegance was our aim.” – Melissa Johnson + Danielle Couturie’, Nola Bash

She came to New Orleans in 2002 and now lives in Picayune, Mississippi, a short hour’s drive to the Big Easy.

She has appeared on Dr. Oz, TLC’s Hoarding Buried Alive and The Larry King Live Show during her career as an Organizing and Productivity Consultant.

Since then she has planned weddings, social events, conferences and educational summits.
