Vogue Tablescape

Alright, this one was for all the ladies that like sparkly things. Much like pigeons and squirrels with a very high sense of taste. Lisa from BV Wedding out did herself with this table by getting these beautiful candle holders (that I secretly want but would have no use for them). My favorite part of the table (besides the flowers of course) was the napkin holders. It looked super cool.

Do you see the burns this poor arrangment had to endure for the event?
Mental Note: Don't place centerpieces to close to votive candles....

See?! Cool napkin holder and napkin fold.

Swank Tablescape

I would have to say this was the table that I had to really think about. I wanted it to be original (who doesn't want that?!) that was also modern. We chose fresh colors for spring but didn't want it to be pink or any pastels. So after many nights of racking my brain and sketches of ideas - I finally decided on doing something with circles and grass. Sounds interesting, right?

Behind the scene story...I spend hours and hours (not really but it sounds good) on the first monogram T to only turn around and drop it. Yes, I dropped it. It broke and I was very sad. I had to make another one. Wahhhh!

Grace Table

The next table we featured at the Bridal Showcase was the Grace table. Lisa (BV Weddings) found some beautiful fabric and was the inspiration for this table. The fabric was used to make the table runner and lid for the favors. Beautiful, simple and elegant!

We kept the flowers simple - cylinder vases with white spidermums.

The Seating Chart to go with the table.
Stay tuned for more later this week!

It all came together last weekend and I'm excited to show you all of the lovely details! We created four different tablescapes and I'll post pictures of each as I gather pictures.
