Kami selalu suka gaya desain simpel dengan warna-warna netral sebagai dasar palet warnanya. Tak harus selalu dinding putih, dinding bercat abu-abu juga bisa jadi latar belakang yang mempermanis warna-warna aksesori rumah lainnya. Itulah salah satu hal yang membuat kami menyukai rumah Egita, ibu satu anak yang sedang merintis usaha online cakeshop, Prunee.
Egita dan Cesar menempati rumah ini sejak Desember 2013. Agar tidak membosankan, dinding rumah berwarna abu-abu diberi aksen dengan menambahkan pernak-pernik berwarna berani seperti chandelier bernuansa biru elektrik-ungu-merah-jingga, sofa fuschia, mikser KitchenAid warna oranye, and lots of colorful fresh flower. Kami suka sekali dengan penempatan meja makan yang bisa langsung melihat ke arah taman. Juga area teras yang simpel tapi manis dengan hiasan berupa kertas kado yang dipotong lalu dibingkai.

Long ago, when we started out this blog. We always talked about how fun it would be to make a gathering of sharing and making. So when we reached the end of 2013, we both agreed that 2014 would be the year of making more friends and more collaborations. So, we decided to make this event.
Last Sunday, 23 March 2013, we invited our friends to join us in an intimate gathering at one of our favorite places 1/15 Coffee, Gandaria, Jakarta. Some of the invitees have already met us in the past, while some others are new friends that we have greeted on social media but never met directly face-to-face. But nonetheless they were all instantly clicked, greeted each other, and got into conversations quickly. Always a pleasure to meet new friends, right?
The pretty centerpiece of apothecary jars, bottles, and domes created by Gudily gave a warm welcome to the guests. We put the craft kit and a jar of Bebikinan‘s salted caramel, which has each guest name written on its label, as a placecard. The gathering was started with a brief introduction of each guests. Then followed by a DIY tutorial led Amesh and Chia from Workshop In A Box. They taught us how to make pretty paperflowers. It was a bit tricky and we all felt like we wanted to steal their flowers and claimed it ours. :p But thankfully we finally managed to make it ourselves! (although both of us cheated a bit by making two flowers together instead of created two flowers per person, hehe). Rolls of irresistible masking tapes, colorful paper straws, and paperbag from Gudily were prepared on the table to embellish the bottles and paper flowers.
The decor details and goodie bag is one of the fun part of this event. We aimed to create a simple decor with a flowery accent but try to keep it from being too girly. Thus, we picked yellow, white, gray, and black as our color palette. For the backdrop, we hung tulle fabric in white, gray, and yellow from the ceiling to floor. We pleated it a bit to gained some textures. Then we folded cupcake wrapper and stapled it to ribbon. It was hung in front of the tulle as an accent. We covered the uneven bottom edge of the tulle with wooden frame decorated with strings also a woven basket from General Object filled with flowers.
