Designing a tabletop can be one of the most fun part of weddings.  For my brides, I think most of them, when thinking about their floral and decor, think almost immediately of their tabletop.  One request I have been hearing a lot of lately is to have not just one centerpiece of flowers, but rather a composition of several items such as bud vases and candle-ware.  So here’s a table that we put together for the bridal show at the Westin St. Francis.

Shimmery enough with gold accents in the floating candles, chairs and flatware and chargers, but a fun striking appeal with a graphic black and white striped tablecloth courtesy of Napa Valley Linens and polka dot menus from Wedding Paper Divas.  I think what I love most about this look is how the graphic print is SO large, and SO graphic, that this traditional print takes on somewhat of an edgy vibe. Who doesn’t have a little rebel inside?

For the florals, we kept it light, airy and soft with white ranunculus and anemone.  Enough florals for the table to feel full and not sparse, but not so over the top where you feel like it’s too much.

For the inspired bridal bouquet, we stuck with the palette of whites and creams in garden roses, peonies, and my personal favorite white lilac, but added that graphic pop with more anemones.
