With an organic approach, the Bash, Please girls grow their business.

As wedding design duo Paige Appel and Kelly Harris of Bash, Please expand into interior projects, it’s no surprise their events of late exhibit a decidedly domestic point of view. For this al fresco wedding reception at Ojai Valley Inn & Spa’s Herb Garden, here’s how they created the look: “We brought wooden farm tables and set them in a ‘U’ around the edges of the Classic Party Rentals tent, then topped them with a bold, striped runner. L.A. florist Twig & Twine topped it with long garlands of bay leaf, olive and mixed greenery with lush white garden and spray roses. Small Pixie tangerines (a nod to Ojai) were the only color present. We added vintage brass and sleek modern candlesticks with long ivory tapers. Casa de Perrin gold flatware and black hemstitch napkins, along with black die-cut place cards and letterpressed dinner menus with the couple’s monogram, completed the look. The effect was elegant—with the intimacy of a small dinner party.”
