We place a lot of stock in meaningful details – after all, there’s no better way to elevate a celebration than incorporating the 5 senses. So when first saw this soft tablescape meant for an intimate gathering, we were compelled to share. A mix of honey, straw, taupe, oatmeal, mustard and bright yellows decorate the scene – bringing to light the richness of the textures on display. We’re confident that the warm details of this shoot will start your weekend on a high note!
Fine art photographer Kristen Kilpatrick has a reputation for capturing ambiance in all its glory! Here, we feel a sense of comfort (and dare we say, hygge) in the dim glow of candlelight, the flaky pie crust and oatmeal colored table linens we could wrap ourselves up in.
Kindle and Gather employs minimalist magic to create a gathering that still feels full. Welcoming, hospitable, relaxed… these are a few of the adjectives that come to mind in her designs, and the result is something innately beautiful and wholesome.
These artfully arranged blooms from Color Theory Collective garner all the praise as they create a sense of motion in their low setting. We’d even venture to say they look like they’re caught mid-dance!
Romantic, scripty calligraphy is always a winner, but when you add a unique texture like linen into the mix, it will take home the gold! We’re all heart eyes for these menu designs from Paper Napkin Press.
We’d like to learn how to say “yum” in every language because these pretty little hors d’oeuvres from The Peached Tortilla are worth the lesson.
Natural light pours in from the windows at Peached Social House where this table sits. You can’t beat this spotlight!
Calligraphed place cards on handmade paper is always a good idea!
From the planner, Kali of Kindle and Gather: I find that I’m most inspired by small, intimate gatherings where friends come together to share a meal and tell stories. With that in mind, we created this Harvest Gathering Shoot full of warmth and hospitality. I knew I wanted to keep the design rather simple with the focal point being the stunning florals designed by Color Theory Collective. The golden tones used throughout her arrangement were the perfect compliment to the overall minimal aesthetic.
When designing a tablescape, I am a big fan of the “less is more” approach. I love to find one element that will be the statement piece and then hand-select the remaining components to bring the design together. Using various textures can add visual appeal, such as the linen menus provided by Paper Napkin Press. Even the tapas created by The Peached Tortilla contributed to the warm, welcoming feeling that makes you want to pull up a chair and pour a glass of wine! I couldn’t have asked for a better team of vendors to bring this vision to life.
Someone please tell us where we can get these modern marble candle holders!
