Table 15: Haute Gateaux
This table was nothing less than absolutely delicious! Small delightful treats were spread over glass cake tiers that enhanced the appearance of the desserts. This tantalizing arrangement beckoned to us and couldn’t be resisted! We started with the tasty salted caramel macrons, then made our way to the light, yet creamy lemon raspberry cake, on to the scrumptious meringues next and capped off our taste adventure with delectable Kahlua cake.
Table 16: Elegance
Representing the bold and adventurous bride and groom. The cheetah print tablecloth paired with a black feathery boa made an extravagant statement with an inviting feel. The floral centerpiece was composed of vivid red, orange, green and gold hues. The gold spray painted flowers and menu cards were particularly eye catching.
Table 17: Woodland Elegance
What a truly enchanted table design. Tall trees with vibrant green leaves and a birch wood trunk encircled a beautiful pond adorned with floating candles and pebbles. How unique! The rich combination of purple tones, natural greens, with brown and reddish flowers, conveyed a woodland dining experience to the entire table.
Table 18: Summer Lovin’
Radiating an essence of summer fun, this table used lively colors of orange and bright pink to stand out from the rest. Simple pink and orange menu cards were a delightful touch. As was the beautiful butterfly and Hershey kiss centerpiece. The personalized color sodas added a contemporary edge. This table exudes creativity, while remaining affordable
Table 19: The Family Tree
Studio Brides & Events
This was a table like no other and had everyone buzzing about the incredibly cute decor. Real baby chicks gathered at the bottom of an elegant natural flower centerpiece comprised of a combination of various types of wood. An intimate, vintage feel was achieved by hanging old pictures of family and friends from the centerpiece branches. In lieu of traditional place cards, previously taken photos of the bride and guest were used to indicate seat location.
Table 20: Every Bunny Reads
Cute, cuddly, colorful! This delightful display was accomplished by placing snuggly tan blankets with vibrant blue flowers and a fluffy stuffed bunny centerpiece. Settings included a first initial letter piece hanging from the back of each chair and an adorable packaged pairing of a children’s book with a brightly colored knitted infant hat.
Table 21: Afternoon Tea
Jacquies Gourmet Catering
This classic, antique designed table was filled with elegant accessories. The old-fashioned silver teapot and cloth doilies increased the tea party atmosphere. A vivid floral tablecloth with pops of purple, red and green was used. Finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream, tea cakes and delicious pastries ensure no one would want to miss this revelry!
Table 22: Happy UnBirthday Party
Ruffles & Roses Weddings and Events
Any little girl would fall absolutely in love with this birthday table display. The colors and embellishments transform you to the world of Alice and Wonderland, complete with a mad hatter tea party celebration. The captivating, topsy turvy teacup centerpiece captures attention. While the blue and red polka dot tablecloth creates a sense of collaborative whimsy.
