Design is one of our favorite aspects of weddings and events, and creating our tablescape for our vendor space at Urban Unveiled this year was a true pleasure. We wanted to do something completely different from the South Beach Chic theme of the event, so we headed west to take on a Pacific Northwest inspired design. Always wanting to challenge ourselves, we decided to mix it up by giving it a contemporary and enchanted spin.
The inspiration started with our weighty wood & manzanita branch centerpieces that were specially designed for a wedding that took place earlier in the summer. From there we knew we wanted to include earthy colors such as moss green, chocolate brown, apple green, amber, copper tones & other warm metallics. We fell in love with this table linen, chair sashes, and 100% linen hemstitch napkins from Choice Linens and knew they would compliment the look perfectly.
We contacted Christiane with Flora Nova Design about creating the floral designs for the tablescape. We knew that we wanted pomander balls, crystals, and votive candles hanging from the manzanita branches, as well as arrangements on the tables. With all of the neutral earth tones, we knew we wanted a big punch of color to create a contrast. Initially we toyed with the idea of orange, but it didn’t seem to quite hit the mark. When we came to the decision to go with fuchsia with punches of plum & pale pink everything clicked. We are so delighted with the way it turned out.
Sheryl with Paper Moxie is a stationary visionary. She worked with us on all of the paper coordinates for the table. As always, she did an absolutely amazing job of creating beautiful designs that worked perfectly with the styling of the table. Upon request, she created menus in moss lined boxes. Sheryl also made lids for the boxes with rocks, leaves & place cards on them – form and function! My grandma Maryann came to Urban Unveiled for the first time, so we had Sheryl make two of the place settings with my grandparents names on them. She also created tags for the favors, jars of fig jam, which were inscribed with, “Spread the love…with a little of our favorite fig jam…Maryann & Jack”
Our good friends at Pedersen’s Rentals supplied us with the table, walnut chivari chairs, chargers, china, stemware, and flatware.
