Wondering how this awesome geometric cube table runner was made in the shoot featured on the blog earlier today? Well, look no further, because Sarah Park was kind enough to share the whole project with us. Now you too can create a fun 3-D table runner that will have your guests talking for days!
For this project, you will need:
-pegboard (6′x1′ to fit a 6′ table)
-bamboo skewers (cut different lengths to create height)
-DIY geometric cubes (DIY instruction here)
-hot glue gun
Step 1: Glue foam board to the back of pegboard
Step 2: Punch a hole with the skewer and place the tip into the geometric cube
Step 3: Hot glue the hole where you want to place the skewer
Step 4: Place the geometric cubes randomly onto the pegboard varying in heights to create a geometric cube centerpiece
Such a cool idea for any crafty bride looking to do something a bit different!
Pink, purple, teal and white. This geometric styled shoot from Sarah Park Events is just exploding with color. Fun shapes pop up on everything from the centerpiece and succulents to the confetti and cake… and that ceremony backdrop – wow!
From the stylist, Sarah Park: For this photo shoot, I wanted to try something different! I asked myself, “What does a geometric centerpiece look like?” Right away I thought of a 3-D geometric cube table runner. I wanted the cubes to be the main focus so we worked around them by adding mini succulents and air plants around the base of the pegboard to create a fun and playful design.
From the centerpiece to the ceremony backdrop, my team and I had so much fun creating the DIY projects for this shoot and we hope to have inspired many brides out there. Thank you to all my wonderful vendors who helped me bring my vision to life, you are all so very talented!
It’s no secret — one of my favorite flowers has always been (and will always be) the protea. They always seem to add a perfect pop of mystery and modern flair to any floral arrangement, don’t you think? With a nearly all-white color scheme and images by picture me&u, this South African wedding charts pretty high on our list of favorites.
From the bride, Angie: I wanted the style to be very vintage and romantic, but with a few modern twists. It was important to us to keep the look and feel simple and understated. I also wanted the style to complement the natural surroundings.
Our colour scheme was predominantly white. The only colour we brought in was from the different Proteas on the tables and my dress which was a light nude/blush. We also asked the closest family and bridal party to wear black to complement our photos. I designed all the stationery, including the labels for the wine bottles and my sister helped me to make the pom poms which hung in the tress during the outdoor ceremony. We didn’t want to detract from the modern elegance of the venue so all decor was simple white or glass.
Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Give yourself enough time to plan everything properly, you don’t want to be making decisions at the last moment because you have run out of time. Do your research and shop around when choosing your wedding vendors.
