Wedding Colours - Table #2

In my last post, I announced our daughter and her fiance's engagement and told you how I was asked to help with the choosing of their wedding colours.

  With apple-green as the go-to colour, I created three small tablescapes in our living room to give them ideas on using different colour combos. 
I showed you Table #1 HERE so now let's look
at Table #2, the far table pictured below.

 This "sample" tablescape uses an apple-green tablecloth as the basis and it is topped with a black runner.


White Pier 1 "Maria" plates are topped with an apple which could serve as a place card holder.


White and green hydrangea centerpiece



A trio of crystal candleholders by Partylite add some sparkle to this table.


A trio of chunky pillar candleholders and pewter candlesticks bring more of the black colour with a touch of silver.



At the back of the table, the tall floral arrangement includes faux grasses in the same colour scheme.


Below, you can see the apple-green napkins, silver flatware, a couple of "lovebirds" and a mirror to anchor the center candle trio.



I added one of my faux greenery 'puff balls' to the table for an added punch of colour.

 Can you picture this sample tablescape as a basis for creating the total colour scheme for the tables at a wedding reception?

 My daughter is very appreciative of being able to see how different colour combos look in real life.  In my next post, I'll show you Table # 3, the one with the white tablecloth in the foreground of the picture below.
Hope you'll come back and check it out too!

Both tables are beautiful. My daughter got married last fall and had glass cylinders with floating fruit in some..it was so pretty. Also they slit apples and had photos of the bride and groom throughout their life in them on every table. Sparked great conversation and memories for all.

Debbie said...

Well, first, congratulations! Planning a wedding will be so fun. I like the idea of creating tables to show the different color ideas. I can definitely see this as inspiration for reception tables. I love the colors, and the apple as the place card is cute.

Alycia Nichols said...

What a great idea to post these 3 fabulous ideas so we can all share in the fun!!! No doubt about it, this is going to be a wedding to remember! Every young woman should have the once-in-a-lifetime experience of planning her wedding with her mother's care, concern, wisdom and love. Wishing you guys the best as you forge ahead!

Another inspiring table idea! Can't wait to see which choice your daughter makes - then you can move forward. Full speed ahead!

Taunnie said...

Oh, I'm so glad I didn't have to wait too long to see the second table. This one is so different but just as beautiful. I don't know how your daughter is going to be able to choose a favorite. Can't wait to see table three.

I love the apple green and white combination and did our Christmas Eve table in those colors. I don't think I'll ever get tired of this combo. I love both tables so far, boy, I wouldn't know which to pick! Beautiful!

These are so lovely -- your daughter will have a difficult time choosing. Looking forward to seeing more of #3.

tammylovesdishes said...

So very beautiful; how ever will your daughter decide? I rather like the simply elegant look with a touch of country that this table evokes.

Entertaining Women said...

When the time comes, I have at least a dozen of the little white birds, plus three or four of the larger ones, if you need to use them for your reception. Just let me know, and I'll mail them to you. I love the apple green and black...it's one of my favorite looks...when I'm not using my beloved blue and white, that is. Thank you for sharing your beautiful design. Oh, I have a little tool that lets you create the perfect size hole in an apple, pear, etc., to fit a tealight candle. Just thinkin'.... Cherry Kay
