Ready to Propose

Coming soon! A brand new company by Lea McIntosh of Lea McIntosh Fine Events. Ever the idea woman, Lea realized there was a need for a company that could assist men and women who want to create a grand, fun or unique wedding proposal but aren't quite sure how to go about doing it. From the smallest details to over the top ideas Lea will guide her clients to the way to make it happen. How cute is that name? So perfect right? I'll post the link once her new website is officially launched. But for now here's a sneak peek...

Last weekend Lea had the opportunity to showcase her talent at the Stanford Park Hotel in Palo Alto, California participating as one of the table top designers in Gentry Magazine's Hollywood Hosts event creating a custom table top to be raffled off at the end of the evening.

Proceeds from the evening benefited the Peninsula Youth Theatre.

If she had been contacted by Mr. Darcy (of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice) and he said he needed help in creating a perfectly appointed dinner table at which to propose to his beloved Elizabeth Bennet, this is Lea McIntosh's vision of what that table could have looked like.

Here was Lea's fabulous team. Andrew Hsu of Studio MSV included one of his "Covert Proposal" videos as part of the package. Kathy Goodman from Well Rehearsed, a company that specializes in designing rehearsal dinners, helped her to set up not one but two tables earlier in the day for a photo shoot. And the lady in red is none other then Lea Mcintosh herself.

I loved that the local honeybees couldn't resist the centerpiece.

The beautiful floral arrangement was sponsored by Bloomsters.

Who else but Wildflower Linen would have created this gorgeous bustled silk table cover and ruched silk chair cover with a triple row strip of rhinestone crystals gracing the back? And by table top prize they literally meant it. The winner even got to keep the bustled table cover as part of their prize!

The table also included 4 place settings of Mikasa china, Waterford crystal stemware, flatware and a gorgeous $1000 pair of pearl and diamond earrings by Vardy's Jewelers in Cupertino.

Lea added two of these cute engagement ring cushions just for fun. Isn't the "Parchment Blue" Mikasa china gorgeous? The table also included a custom proposal planning package with Lea herself.

And what's a celebration without Bacarat champagne flutes and a little bubbly? And not just any bubbly. The bottle of Dom PĂ©rignon came in the fanciest box I've ever seen for a beverage of any type. Admittedly I've not seen the packaging most bottles of alcohol come in but this one was pretty darn fancy.

Lea's ticket box was filled with tickets. I watched as a lot of people entered multiple times. Some put a whole bunch of tickets in all at once while others strategically staggered their entries. I think it's safe to say that Lea's was the crowd favorite and with a retail value of $5700 and full of style it's no wonder so many people wanted to win it.
