I not only love the enduring quality of the paisley motif, which has lived on throughout
centuries but also its meaning. One paisley symbolizes the life force, growth, and renewal
while two paisleys conjure up the flow and interaction of two polar energies (yin-yang),
the totality of which encompasses creation. What a perfect motif for a wedding! What
a perfect motif to use on a tableware collection. Set your table with tasteful style
with this beautiful dinnerware collection from Neiman Marcus.
Event producer Tara Guérard of Soirée drew upon the elegance of black-and-white to
craft a ceremony and reception rich in symbolism and style. Guérard turned paisley into
a key wedding element to appear throughout the party.
Black piping on the couch cushions, black-stained wooden coffee tables and a black-and-white
paisley lantern overhead all brought the party’s decor scheme together.
Even the food doubled as decorative and symbolic elements. A apple-green green cakes
features an ornate paisley pattern "stitched" in white icing.
