Melbourne Cup Event Inspiration

Posted on: October 24, 2013

Melbourne cup - the race that stops a nation.

This prestigious event is synonomous with fashion, fun and the field.  November is just around the corner so today's blog post highlights the decor and styles inspired by this fabulous race day.


Women's fashion is a highlight of all race days and none bigger than the cup.  Colour blocking is trending this year along with prints and of course OTT head wear.  Much to our delight, fashionistas are also drawing inspiration from the timeless elegance of the 1940's era.  Some of the images below highlight the old and the new, paying homage to the glamazons of a time gone by...

Styling & Decor

Our styling inspiration has been drawn from grass and succulents, stimulated by the smell of spring and the promise of new life.  Crisp white linens with hanging greenery bring a modern edge to your event, and outdoor lounges provide a relaxed garden party feel.  For weddings, we love lining the aisle chairs with garlands of greenery, or striking arrangements on mirrored pedestals.  We just had to include the spray painted hearts on the grass too...such a simple and effective idea!
