What a fabulous little event design and styling post I have for you today from Angie Capri Photography! It’s the tale of two tablescapes. One blush and gold and totally glittery, the other combines both modern and vintage elements in an absolutely darling way, and both are exceptionally gorgeous and totally inspirational! It’s going to be tough to decide which one you love most – it was for me!
BLUSH AND GOLD AND GLITTERY
From Erin of Your Event By Erin – “I was definitely inspired by glitter which led to the DIY ombre glitter runner I made myself, it began with dusty pink glitter on one end and elegantly evolved into gold glitter at the other end. I started with a simple textured burlap runner, sprayed it in sections with adhesive glue and sprinkled on the glitter.
The mini pink moscato bottles were also DIY items sprayed with adhesive glue and dunked in glitter, a festive decor element or fun favor for a shower or wedding.
We absolutely loved the way the little DIY glitter favor bags turned out as well and the “husband” and “wife” tags by Pigment and Parchment which were the perfect complement. I used standard craft paper treat bags that I purchased at Paper Source. I sprayed them half way up the bag with adhesive glue (yes, it was an adhesive glue spraying kind of afternoon) and applied coarse glitter and sealed them with a little clothes pin.”
From Erin of Your Event By Erin – “My dear friend Kellyne with Hand and Heart Design made the adorable little tissue garland to compliment the table. Another item you can customize with various colors for birthdays, showers, and celebrations of all types!
The pinwheels on the chairs were another cute whimsical detail, some were purchased as is and some were created from gorgeous fine handmade paper all discovered at Paper Source (a favorite shopping spot of ours).
The floral arrangement by the talented Darwin at Florali was the perfect arrangement for our brushed metal urn… Those dripping ranunculus and curiously cute pink anemones were eye candy galore!
We combined various shades of pinks, patterns and gold details throughout the rest of the table. It was a sweet collaboration full of whimsical, glamorous and rustic details.”
VINTAGE AND MODERNLY GEOMETRIC
From Kelly of Kelly Elissa Events & Elizabeth of Enchantment Floral – “Our tablescape vignette is inspired by a color palette of peach, coral and gold. We wanted to blend aspects of modern, geometric design with vintage rustic pieces and lush floral accents. Since we stuck with a clean design this eclectic mix of aesthetics and decor was complimentary rather than competitive and distracting.
The tablescape is the center of our design. We begin with a simple white dotted linen to showcase the color palette, especially the gold details. The table settings arranged in a diamond shape incorporate the geometric theme by using a round gold-rimmed charger and base plate and a square salad plate. The table settings are topped with a peach and DIY name cards, also cut in a variety of geometric shapes. The natural farm chairs add a rustic touch to the entire vignette.”
From Kelly of Kelly Elissa Events & Elizabeth of Enchantment Floral – “The centerpiece is an area that gave us a great opportunity to showcase the modern geometric aspect. We started with a green garland base along the center of the table, we topped it with gold geometric terrarium vases from Anthropologie. The vases were filled with additional greenery, garden roses, anemones, and ranunculus. The design was finished off with some scattered gold succulents and a collection of modern candle holders from CB2.
The antique dresser and cart, provided by Hunt & Gather Rentals, were used to showcase the gorgeous ivory and gold 3 tiered cake and peach tea beverage with DIY gold glitter spray painted mason jars. Our friend at Harlow’s House contributed a diverse variety of decor and DIY accessories that added a beautiful variety and pops of color throughout our design, including the custom tassel garlands accenting the beverage cart and backdrop. The embroidery hoops served as additional decor, and were adorned with floral garland, as well as the handmade the “Mr.” and “Mrs.” chair banners.
Our backdrop was a simple pipe and drape set up that we decorated with lush floral garland of greenery and garden roses, and the tassel garland by Harlow’s House. The final touch was a hanging chandelier we DIY’d using a modern lampshade, adorned with a floral garland and suspended above the vignette to add the final touch we were looking for.”
