“This is it, we’ve made it through 2020! I know we’re all looking forward to a new year and that also means new trends, so for this shoot we’re highlighting one of our favorite color palettes for the new year. We’re featuring shades of rust, dusty blue and mustard in this shoot at The Rooftop on Basin, which overlooks the beautiful French Quarter. Floral and other natural elements are going to be big in 2021 and you’ll notice that even goes for amazing scalloped edge trains that follow the pattern of the floral lace of the gown. 2021 is all about color so don’t be afraid to pair some bolder tones like rust or mustard with a more mellow dusty blue or pale peach!”

ABOUT THE ROOFTOP ON BASIN:
The Rooftop on Basin sits atop the historic Basin St. Station. Built in 1904 as the Southern Railway Freight Office, Basin St. Station was also originally used by the New Orleans Terminal Company. The railroad vacated the building in 1975 and it sat empty for many years. The building was purchased and began renovation and restoration in 2004. The front of the building has retained the stations’ 1904 classic architecture. The venue boasts a magnificent view of the New Orleans skyline.
FLORALS + DECOR DETAILS: Berry Blossom Flowers created the whimsical floral arrangements and bouquet with inspiration from the floral edge Tara Coup Collection china and Titan Capri Brushed Gold Flatware and Bella Gold Band Wine Glasses from Party Rentals Delivered. To complete the look, event designer, Rena Sweeney of Alchemy Events, chose Party Rentals Delivered’s gold Phoenix chairs and Cobalt linen.
