Creating the perfect centre piece for your wedding tables has grown from a simple vase of roses to an extravagant array of options. Yesterday I spent an afternoon in awe of creative talent & the taking of a concept to completion.
The Award Winning Bright & Beautiful Flowers and Table Decor hosted a Wedding Workshop afternoon at Steenberg Golf Estate. Collaboration with a selected group of service providers allowed us to present our products to Brides To Be in the most gorgeous way.
This tablescape was spot on trend with the copper hints & geometric shaped vase. I loved the drama of the black accents & the 1920’s style table number. The pink tones in the flowers just ‘softened’ the look perfectly.
The olive branch wreaths on the chairs completed this look just perfectly. Wood, fruit, greenery & dusty pinks made for a pretty rustic setting. The addition of the LED Light Strings inside acrylic ‘light bulbs’ gave this table a extra twist as the ‘Edison’ light bulb is so on trend right now.
As “The In Thing …” had supplied the ‘light bulbs’ & Mini LED Light strings for the plinths I was super excited to see this particular table all set up.
This display was so gorgeous, foliage & florals trailing off the end of a table are a look I love.
The bright red flowers would really brighten your heart if it was a cold winters day. The little chocolate fondue pots made me just want to sit down & tuck in.
Then there was Crystal & Gold, a far more classic look that will never go out of style. Opulence was plentiful with the gorgeous embossed table cloth, gold cutlery & fancy crockery.
The table number gave a ‘pop’ of humour to this elegant display. From “The In Thing’s …” Marquee Love range, letter & number light kits. High gloss gold spray paint & some gold embossed craft paper was used to decorate the basic white numbers.
Table Number 12 finished at home before being put into the tablescape. I love decorating this product range I carry.
Stationery — menus, place cards & so much more is such an important addition to the look. On this table it took it’s lead from the Pantone Colour of the Year & 2016 is the first time two colours were chosen — Rose Quartz and Serenity.
Florals were far more ‘simple’ but this too me made them more gorgeous and I really liked the more ‘open’ design of the table. Gold accents from the Tiffany Chairs, candles holders & tableware made it all feel so luxurious but I can just imagine it looking just as nice with silver & white for a more relaxed luncheon
Then it all went from Gold to ….
Roses & Tulips combined here perfectly with Eucalyptus all the way through the table centre, low enough for that all important conversation to be maintained. Vintage silver cutlery off set the white & glass crockery to a tee.
The ostrich feathers & assorted lace embellished pieces just completed the mood. It really ‘tickled my fancy!’
No afternoon out would be complete with out some Tea! The prettiest sherbet colours of these roses that stood at a vast height over the table perfectly complemented the array of Vintage Tea sets on display below
From one table of sorbet hues to another where the more traditional Vintage Tea Sets were laid out. These designs are more ‘fussy’ & maybe not to everyone’s taste & not much else was needed but some LOVE on the table
Tucked away behind “The In Thing’s …” Vintage Rusty LOVE Marquee Letter Light set was this incredible posy of flowers — all edible. When someone is not only a master baker but an artist too what would you expect?
This is just my personal digest of the afternoon & I could not capture everything from all the Service Providers.
From Wedding Dresses & Men’s Formal Wear to the amazing LED dance floor. A flautist who added to the atmosphere with his playing. Candles & Garters, the DJ & the Award Winning Make Up Artist. The Photographer (can’t wait to see her photos as I’m no great pic taker) & through to all the companies that did the stationery, laser cut work & more.
But I will finish my Floral Afternoon with this last bunch of flowers that will last long after you have said your vows …
The best part of these Paper Floral Creations is the ‘history’ behind them … a bride last year wanted them for her Bridesmaids but could not find anyone to make them for her. So after hours on Pinterest & ‘pinning’ away the ‘how to’s’ & much trial an error she made them.
This year she has launched her new found talent as a business & I wish her all the best for the future which will Flower Panels, Back Drops & Wall installations too.
Thank you again to Neva & her team from Bright & Beautiful, Flowers and Table Decor for organising this event & sharing their creative ideas with us all.
I am imaging many brides to be left brimming with inspiration & lots of gorgeous wedding to come.
& that’s the end of a Floral Afternoon.
