Chinese wedding planner loves the blend of East meets West in Chinese wedding macarons!

So many wedding magazines and blogs have featured macarons recently and you being a Chinese bride loves them right?  But what happens if your Chinese wedding guests want something that is a little more Asian inspired in terms of taste and flavour?  For us at Asian Fusion Weddings, we’re all about infusing East and West together for our clients in their culturally infused wedding celebrations and feel that we have found the perfect item – beautifully hand made mini macarons by Canele Patisserie Chocolaterie in Singapore.

What we really love is that they offer eight Asian-inspired flavours and then have them dressed up in a pretty palette of pastel coloured hues.  They offer Sakura – adorned with a blush of cherry blossom extract flown in from Northern Japan, Chinese Black Tea – velvety cream steeped with flavour and fragrance of freshly-brewed black tea, Pandan Kaya Coconut – infused with pandan leaves and rich coconut jam, topped with a dusting of coconut flakes, Yuzu Kinako – a delightful blend of smooth soybean with Japanese yuzu, a tangy citrus fruit with a subtly sweet aftertaste, Cashew Nut Praline – inspired by the cashew nut cookie popular during the lunar new year season and imbued with chocolate praline, Matcha Auki – a classic Japanese favouritey of green tea with a touch of red bean, Mango Jasmine – vanilla marmalde cream imbibed with a hint of jasmine, and Golden Sesame – creamy mily chocolate scented with freshly roasted sesame seeds.

We’re looking forward to trying these little goodies out!  How about you?  Please let us know if you’ve ever tried these before by commenting below.

It’s all Crystal Clear and Beautiful – according to Toronto Chinese Wedding Planner

This next vignette at Macy’s was really hard to photograph. Glass, mirror and crystal isn’t easy to photograph when you’re not a Pro. Anyhow, this was an extremely sparklely and brilliant set-up. This design reminds me of the Old Hollywood Glam era.

Amazing Curtain of Crystals – wonder how many hours it took to string them all together? Fabulousness!!

You couldn’t really do Old Hollywood Glam without having a statement Chandelier as this one!

Now as you peer into all the bling….

And for more stunning accents…

A contrasting place setting to all the glass and crystal…

And I couldn’t help but take a picture of the floor as well…

Vintage Wedding Inspirations found at Macy’s by Chinese Wedding Planner

So, the third vignette at Macy’s is what I’d call “Vintage Chic”. Check out those fabulous wicker chairs. I’m sure someone’s relative still might have these in their very own backyard!

A great use of Bird Cages with Magnolias

Vintage Chic Place Settings – a wonderful way to mix up 2 different patterns (one that is a solid colour with one that have a really organic feel to it)

Pale Bluish Green Vintage inspired China. Really love the fact that the saucer almost looks like a dollie imprinted in it with the scalloped edges.

Moroccon Meets the Carribbean – Toronto Wedding Planner’s Inspirations

This second vignette at Macy’s in New York city is what I’d like to coin as “Moroccon meets the Carribbean”; which showcases the traditional Carribbean flare of tangerine, fuschia and turquoise mixed with Moccon henna browns, sienna and intricate repetitive patterns on the place settings.

Toronto Wedding Planner gets Inspiration from Macy’s in New York City

Often times we can find inspiration for weddings from various places that don’t necessarily have to be 100% wedding related. During my visit to New York city, I walked the multi-level store of Macy’s in New York City and got inspiration from their china department. Here’s are my favourite vignettes.

Let’s call the first one “Pretty in Pink”. I find this extremely feminine and romantic. I could very well imagine this as the setting for a bridal shower in someone’s very own backyard or even a cake and champagne reception at an estate manor property.

The first thing is to set the stage:

“Pretty in Pink Gazebo”

The second thing is to select the colour scheme. Here they have used pinks and whites. You might not see it very well from my photo, but the white chivari chairs had a skirting made of pink tulle. The centrepiece is made of peonies.

The third thing is the flatware, glassware and china. I really love this pattern and could very well see it used in someone’s home during a festive Easter brunch, a get together with girlfriends or even on a daily basis. One can never have enough beautiful china in my humble opinion. Note how the menu card matches the colour scheme and how the black ribbon around the napkin helps anchor everything together. You might also check out the stemware as well; no water marks on these pretty babies.

Now for one final close up shot of these lovely dishes.
