09 Jun How to Make the Perfect Tablescapes
We at Abbey Catering and Event Design know that, at a wedding, all eyes will focus on your tablescapes, so it’s important to get it right. A well designed table can bring color and life to any party setting and will direct the eye to the things that are important in the arrangement.
A common starting point is with the color scheme, and many brides choose to compliment the colors of the wedding attire with the theme of the reception room. While there is a good reason to do this, there are also other options which will liven up the room and really impress your guests. Going monochromatic and highlighting different shades of the same color adds a look of boldness and grandiosity, and working with your existing colors ties everything together to create a unified look. One daring suggestion is to work with all of your main and accent colors, alternating the colors between tables. Another is mixing square and round tables.
We’ve been keeping a close eye on the trends and fashions of 2011 and one subject that has been big news is the use of themes to provoke a series of ideas. A great example of this is a Twilight-inspired tablescape, using an apple – a feature on the front cover – as a recurring theme throughout the ornaments and colors on the table. Using your favorite moments, books, films or even fairy tales, The Abbey will work with you anyways we can to create your vision and give your event a memorable and unique edge.
