In keeping with the wedding themed posts I've done lately, I thought I'd share with you this brown and white bridal shower/dinner tablescape I created.
I started by putting some faux hydrangeas on a bed of tulle inside three of these rustic hurricanes.
Two white "lovebirds" on crystal candleholders flank the middle hydrangea centerpiece.
Let's take a closer look at the items interspersed amongst the centerpieces...
Did you see the lace heart with wedding rings?
How about a kissing couple?
The little bride and groom?
Five honoured guests have been invited to dine with the bride.
The Bride-To-Be gets a special place setting.
Pier 1 "Maria" plates are set atop silver chargers.
Some "vintage" wedding bells and grapevine balls make perfect placecard holders.
The flatware is by Josef Strauss.
The napkin fold is a "sailboat" design turned sideways. (Instructions are found here at BNOTP)
Ribbed stemware awaits both wine and water.
The woven placemats were turned lengthwise for a unique look.
How about hosting the bridal shower/dinner in the evening and adding lots of candlelight?
The guest of honour sits at the head of the table.
An intimate bridal shower/dinner might have a calming effect on the bride.
The stresses of wedding planning can be forgotten
and all can relax and enjoy each other's company.
Hope I've given you a bit of inspiration if you have any upcoming bridal events to host.
