The Coral & Co. and Friends Showcase: A winter sultry wonderland

A Night of Elegance, Creativity, and Collaboration

At Coral & Co., we thrive on nurturing relationships, igniting creativity, and showcasing the exceptional talent within our industry. Each year, we curate a supplier photoshoot and host a showcase event to bring our creative vision to life. This year, we transformed Fluffy Studio into a sultry winter wonderland, embracing deep plum, shiraz burgundy tones, and delicate dusty rose accents. Here’s an exclusive peek into our Coral & Co. and Friends Showcase, where elegance met inspiration.

We wanted this showcase to be an immersive experience, so instead of just doing a styled shoot and posting it on socials for all to see, we invited guests and friends in the events industry, along with creatives, to experience it firsthand. We wanted them to personally feel the finishes, soak in the emotion, revel in our creations, and make some new connections and friends too. It was our first showcase and networking event, and we were so proud to host it.

From Pinterest Dreams to Reality

Our inspo? Well, it’s safe to say Pinterest played a major role, alongside the latest fashion trends and some serious interior design eye-candy. We wanted an atmosphere that was both intimate and elegant, where every detail spoke volumes about our love for event styling and personal touches. And boy, did we nail it! The showcase was an enchanting fusion of creativity and style that had everyone buzzing.

Fluffy Studio: A Chic Haven

Our venue, the fab Fluffy Studio owned by the amazing Abbie, was the perfect backdrop. Known for her expertise in brows and lashes, Abbie’s space is sleek, modern, and just screams sophistication. Whether you’re after a glam beauty fix or a spot for your next shoot, Fluffy Studio sets the scene like no other. Clean lines, minimalist decor, and an ambiance that’s both chic and inviting – it was love at first sight for us and our guests.

Evolve: Floral Artistry Elevated

Shae from Evolve blew us away with her sculptural floral designs. Think cauliflower mixed with blackberries and calla lilies – talk about a botanical dream!
