The pairing of pink and blue is one we’ll always love for weddings, and the combination is used here ever so beautifully by the talented team of Izzy Hudgins Photography and Emily Burton Designs. Designer Emily strayed from the typical fall color palettes in favor of a look that’s a bit more vibrant and lively, implementing metallic and wood details for a truly chic look. We couldn’t love the result more!
From the event designer, Emily Burton Designs: The design concept behind this fall tablescape was to showcase how you can use atypical “fall” color palettes, and still make them scream fall! I wanted to showcase, that colors aren’t the only way to communicate and decorate for the seasons effectively! I wanted the fall feeling to be evoked through focusing on textures: from natural woods, to organic and cotton linens, to carefully choosing different textural floral centerpieces glassware, like concrete and clear glass.
A combination of both modern and clear containers were chosen to give this old vintage grey table new life, and formality. To help create balance on the table, dark gray charger plates and fun marbled dinner plates were chosen to, offset the negative space that was created by the oversized floral centerpieces. To add in a bit of femininity, the table was finished off with a beautiful tea stained organic runner Silk and Willow. Lastly, I love providing custom menus, so your guest know exactly the dinner plans throughout the evening, and it gives them a little something to talk to the other guests about. A perfect dinner or event, it about leaving a lasting impression after all!
Since textures were the focus, we used a common type of floral arranging technique called blocking. The flower blocking application, is where you group “like flowers” together in a container to create more of a dramatic and textural flair. A variety of common, every day flowers, such as carnations and lillies were used in addition to unique finds, like dried antler branches, and sponge mushroom. Dried branches, sponge mushrooms, and Guinea feathers are a great way to add a simple, yet elegant texture and because these floral fillers are neutral in color… that means you’re really able to use them with any color palette.
