I know that I talked a little about long tables on Tuesday, but I wanted to revisit the same pictures this time focusing on the table decor.  Here is the picture once more for a visual reminder:

To begin: take a look at the linens.  They are beautifully simple.  I never shy away from a pattern, but in this case, the decor on top of the tables does all of the talking.  The navy blue gives a stunning background.  I love how the Chivari chairs, the chargers, and the white candle sticks stand out against the elegant backdrop.  They are such simple touches that you find at most weddings, but they so often blend in with their surroundings because of the lifeless linens.  In this case, the bride also chose to use brushed silver vases instead of the traditional clear ones.  They bring an added element of depth and beauty to such a simple backdrop.

On to the flowers: this wedding show-cased bright and cheerful blooms that really stood out.  I love the effect of using one color and type of flower in each vase and then using varying heights of vases.  The bride chose roses, orchids,  Calla lilies, and a few other flowers in brilliant shades of orange, pink, yellow and green.  The tables really come alive with such eye-catching colors and textures.   Although this set-up would cost a lot of money to recreate exactly, you could achieve a similar look using Flower Friday’s most recent post on single stems. Single stems of pink peonies, green hydrangeas, yellow spider mums, and orange roses = perfection!

Have a wonderful day!
