Trend Alert: Table Dressings

While typically our discussions pertain to decor that sit ON tabletop surfaces, today we bring you decor OF these surfaces: a pinch of razzle-dazzle to “dress-up” those plain ol’ things. Finding a suitable table fabric certainly contributes much to a wedding reception’s overall aesthetic, which can be accredited to the fabric’s nature of making. In other words, what type of material is this? Each piece of cloth will carry within itself a different set of initial associations (i.e. burlap is for rustic outdoor/barnyard weddings only; tulle only fits the younger age group). But of course, there really isn’t any official structured rules or “correct answers”, nor any limitation in pairing your choice in fabric with the other elements of your ceremony – so have some fun considering your options! Trust your instincts, and pick the one(s) that feels right to you!

It looks as if the table had gone ahead and gotten its own extravagant, rose-swirl patterned “dress” for the evening!

Silky smooth satin makes even arbitrary folds and pools of the fabric look lavishly elegant!

Ironically, velvet material nowadays seems to take on a chic, modern edge as opposed to a reference to medieval times.

A simple cotton basket weave black and white table-runner such as the one above will certainly get the decorating job done!

Small, circle sew-on pieces resolve themselves into a frock-like material complete with its gorgeously ruffled texture! And here’s another idea: instead of generating light from object on top, have the light source function from underneath!

Sheer linen has a way of crumpling up that, rather than looking ragged, actually ends up carrying more stylish candidness in these photo shoots!

Knitted large place mats set off vintage vibes, especially when draped across old, classy furniture!

Instead of a putting them on a sign, hang these words of encouragement off your table so everyone gets the message!

Happy #WeddingWednesday!

It’s #WeddingWednesday, and we’re sharing a special, styled shoot that we had the pleasure of creating with Eventi Floral & Events! This fabulous photo shoot highlights some of the big wedding trends of 2017.  The invitation suite features Greenery, the “it” color of the year according to Pantone. We also kept the palette trendy by adding silver because a metallic is always key! From the vineyard setting to the cutest escort card display ever, there’s lots of inspiration included in this post. Thank you to Amelia Johnson Photography for capturing the day in style!
