New Venue Alert – Edmonds Waterfront Center

With hints of spring surrounding us, the excitement of Phase 3 next week and the opening of the new Edmonds Waterfront Center, we’d say March treated us well!

Earlier this month we had the opportunity to style the new Edmonds Waterfront Center with a talented team of vendors as the building celebrated its new beginnings. Images by Into Dust Photography.

Located on the waterfront in downtown Edmonds and steps away from the ferry terminal the outdoor area at Edmonds Waterfront Center makes for the perfect location for photos, an outdoor ceremony and lawn games!

Working with Fena Flowers we designed a low ground floral arch to compliment the natural flow of the lawn and avoid blocking any of the backdrop. Arrangements were filled with bright pink and yellow floral along with greenery found in the PNW. The yellow forsythia branches are always a favorite!

Whether in the community lounge or in the ballroom, your cocktail hour will be surrounded by large open windows highlighting the waterfront views and giving you an opportunity to fill with appetizers!

Right now we’re crazing the Crab Cakes and Fried Chicken Sliders by Shooby Doo Catering!

 

The awakening of Spring in the PNW gives the opportunity to spot bright yellow daffodils popping up throughout the area and what better way to highlight that beauty than in your event florals?

Tables adorned in cobalt blue linens were topped with vibrant pink and yellow centerpieces and circled with fruitwood chivari chairs. Place settings featuring waterfall mustard napkins and white chargers topped with watercolor-inspired dinner menus to match the table numbers and place cards. 

The sweetheart table stood out amongst the sea of blue linens with its mustard yellow linen and lush floral spray. Daffodil blooms topped the place settings to add that special touch.

Buffet or plated, what’s your vote? Luckily for you this menu dreamed up by Shooby Doo Catering can be served plated or in a buffet!

Artisan apple salad, flat iron steak, grilled salmon, sautéed green beans, and rainbow marble potatoes are the perfect menu for a PNW wedding or event!

Desserts while not only delicious can be another vehicle to add that wow factor to your event. We chose to be daring with a mustard yellow buttercream three-tiered wedding cake as the focal piece to the dessert bar that featured petite desserts including fruit tartlets and lemon bars. Yum!

Don’t forget the kiddos! With families eager to get out of the house, be sure to keep the little ones in mind as they too will be attending your event.

From tables filled with easy to grab snacks and games galore, parents will thank you for keeping their kids busy and happy! A babysitter to watch the children is a must.

Meetings never looked so good! Being on the waterfront has its perks and the meeting rooms at Edmonds Waterfront Center definitely capture it well!

For this shoot, we set the room for a corporate meeting using the venue’s tables and chairs along with some fun surprises to keep attendees eager to take note and stay alert with mini cupcakes and a caffeine of choice!

Inspired by the city of Edmonds and the surrounding PNW Evergreen Custom Gifting created gifts featuring products that would delight both the corporate and wedding world!
