Tonight on The Edit, LENZO starts your 2016 celebrations a little early as we bring you our New Year’s Eve Editorial shot by the talented Kassi from Hello Darling Photography.
The shoot was a collaborative effort between some of our favourite partners, and would not have looked so beautiful without the work of our florist friend Lucie from Lulu Bird. She really went #BIG with our British India idea, and truly brought to life our concrete jungle with her creative flair (a moment for that coconut arrangement)! The space was further filled green thanks to the great assortment of palms from Dan's Plants.
We couldn’t go past the amazing furnishings from Dann Event Hire to deck out our rooftop bar. Everything was so on theme, from the extravagant lotus chairs to the venetian blinds and really made everything come together.
To give a real atmosphere to our L1 Studios rooftoop, we decided to cover the two blank walls with a beautiful hand painted leaf mural by Lucy Munson Art, using a perfect pastel pallete chosen just for us by the colour experts at Haymes. We then used these colours to paint our pineapples and our coconuts. And yes, if you were wondering – that IS a plant pot made out of a REAL watermelon…
For lighting, the lovely team from Pro Light and Sound help set up our classic festoon lights. We then LENZOfied these by attaching different types of palms to the string, and this created a unique skyline that popped from the busy cityscape. And for that extra LENZO splash, we added massive gold and pink Belle Balloons with ivy garlands trailing behind them.
And it isn’t New Year’s Eve without a bit of sparkly, so we couldn’t go past popping open a bottle of LENZO favourite Veuve Clicquot, which you too can enjoy below in the Shop This Look. We also made some seriously fun cocktails by mixing Belvedere Vodka with San Pellegrino Sparkling, topped with a very special addition – handcrafted Popstic Ice Creams #YUM.
Now, if you still haven’t got your outfit sorted for your NYE Event, you must pop in to Seduce Clothing, who stock a range of different options from gorgeous gowns to hot mini dresses. We’re loving block colour this season. Seriously, how #AMAZING does that Olive Jumpsuit and Fringed Dress look on Amelia?!
GMS Silver then added the perfect finishing touch with their simple yet beautiful jewellery range, which we then paired with our TDE pouch that is the perfect size to carry your necessities around. And if you are going for an all nighter and need a bag more capable to hold everything you own, we suggest this St Agni bag – a perfect addition that can take you from day to night.
One thing the LENZO team are always adamant about when hosting, is to have some form of photography to capture the moment. If you want to stand out from the ordinary then Social Playground is the perfect place to start. They stock both Instagram printers and the newly launched Gif Gif booth, which takes a series of still images that then combines to make an animated Gif. We included the GifGif in the shoot, and this proved to be a hit with everyone at the shoot!
And whatever the occasion is, it so important to delight your guests with the #SWEETEST little treats that you can get your mitts on. To be honest, you can never go past a cake, and we are obsessing over this earthy one created by Bake and Co. And those cookies?! They are the concoction of Elisa Pie, and they are probably the most photogenic cookies we have ever come across in our life - #inLOVE!
So let the count down begin..3...2...1
Happy New Year darlings!
Love LENZO x
