Glasses of “bubbly” and custom cookie favors created by Cookies by Design add the finishing touches for this sweetheart table set with Sea Sponge Purple Chargers and Azalea Shantung napkins (wrapped with faux $100 bill origami napkin rings!) atop the Citron Gigi Linen, from BBJ Linen.

The W New Orleans French Quarter’s courtyard is both vibrant and intimate, the perfect location for wedding events. Here we styled our reception table with BBJ’s Sanibel linen, Boca napkins with watermelon trim and Luxe Turquoise chargers. Colorful blooms and tropical greenery, designed by Pistil and Stamen add to this lush table top. Custom cookie favors created by Cookies by Design to look like champagne bottles, champagne flutes and S.W.A.K. hearts add a sweet treat for guests.
