From the event designers, Paramithi: {Coordination, Flowers & Décor}: Think one of a kind luxury, glamour, dreamy, sophisticated, bursts of confetti and glitter with many chic elements. It’s the look of ‘The Great Gatsby’ and Old Hollywood’s elegant and stylish details making a statement that serves as inspiration for this modern Smitten with Sparkle shoot. Think white-gloved waiters and big band dancing, crystal candlesticks and gold-rimmed china. The return to romance ushers in a new love for the formality of an earlier time.
