Last week, I mentioned to you all that I would be designing a table for The Wedding Salon! I had such a great time meeting all of the bride and groom's to-be! Well as promised, here are some photos of the table I designed!
This time around, I decided to go for a bright, colorful, Spring look that was sure to be eye popping! The white underlay and green burlap cap overlay were created by Cloth Connection and all of the rentals were provided by Party Rental Ltd. Not only could you use this as table decor for your wedding, but you could also incorporate some of the ideas into your Mother's Day entertaining!
I collaborated with the extremely talented Ana Dolan of Invitations by Ana, who designed the menus and place cards on real wood paper! How clever! She is so talented!
Each place setting received a tea cup of pansies with their names written on the wood paper! This was a unique twist on traditional place cards. You could also use this as a favor for your guests to take home!
Instead of putting a menu at each place setting, I decided to put one in between each seat, incorporating it into the decor.
Around the base of the willow tree that we constructed, I used many natural elements and live flowers including yellow tulips, purple hyacinth, yellow daffodils, and pansies! Not only did the table look beautiful, but it smelled great too!
So you may be wondering, "how can I use this for Mother's Day entertaining?" Well, what I recommend is that this Mother's Day you use organic elements as well as bright colors. Incorporate fresh, live, fragrant flowers such as hyacinth. Also, don't be afraid to mix and match china! As you can see at the table I designed above for The Wedding Salon, we mixed and matched different colors and different patterned china, to create this sophisticated, yet fun look!
Don't forget! Mother's Day is just around the corner and will be here before you know it! Mark down Sunday, May 8th in your calendar and take a look at some of my Mother's Day entertaining tips on Seventeen Magazine's website here.
