The Special Event Show - New Orleans

Event Design and florals by Urban Earth Studios, New Orleans, LA.

To say this show was fantastic is an understatement! The best of the best in the special events world spoke and performed at this show, and it was such a treat to benefit from their wisdom. Here are a few pics of the spectacular tablescapes during the Wedding Luncheon. The luncheon's keynote speaker, was Darcy Miller (the editor of Martha Stewart Weddings). She shared many of the exciting ideas that they feature in the magazine, as well as a few tidbits on the industry as a whole. One of my favorite things about going to this show is coming back with a plethora of new ideas to share with clients. And, hanging out in cool cities like New Orleans is fun too. ;)

Yes, I'm a groupy when it comes to talented people in the Wedding/Event industry. Below is a picture of me and Darcy Miller of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine. She is fantastic, and just a guru in the industry.


  1. Hi Courtenay- James Clawson (Urban Earth Design Studios) here. I, along with Sarah Hall (Joel Grand Cuisine) were the co-chairs of the lunch. Thank you so much for your kind words of praise on the design of the lunch ballroom. We are thrilled that you liked it and found some great ideas. I see that you particularly liked the bubbling brook tables. Those were my personal favorite. Thanks again! James

  2. Wow! Urban Earth's floral arrangements and table designs are amazing! They are always so creative and beautiful, I can't wait to see what they come up with for my wedding!
