Tablescapes Anyone?

Oh my goodness! I have been so inspired today and I just couldn’t keep it all to myself. While perusing Pinterest I have come across some amazing…yes amazing tablescapes. What I love about these is that they can be used for a wedding, shower or any kind of party or get together. And the greenery, oh the greenery is just amazing – yes I am totally crushing on the greenery!

First is this minimalist Italian-Style wedding ensemble. I just love love love the brick and the greenery. It’s so simple yet so elegant. The clear, acrylic chairs are perfect in that they don’t take focus off the beautiful table. Your eye goes directly to the classy, elegant table decor. The mix of texture and simple colors; white, green and metallic are in perfect harmony and contrast with the dark table, the clear chairs and stemware.

Next is this simple and rustic gem. I could just see myself sitting at this table in a mountain or outdoor setting. I can imagine a fire in a fire pit not far away. The elements for this simple and elegant table setting go perfectly together. I love the soft furry cushions on the wooden seats. The candles give a harmonious glow off the table highlighting the simple greenery and florals. The reclaimed wood table ties it all together giving an added feeling of warmth and coziness.

Finally, for those of us who like a little bit of color; I found this example. A romantic rustic outdoor setting. Here they have used a blue chevron patterned table runner to add a bit of color to the setting. What’s awesome about this particular tablescape is that whatever color table runner you want to use would work. The white florals and simple greenery along with the white dinnerware and candles really play off well against the dark table and chairs. The addition of the white/linen colored seat cushions to the chairs helps tie the whole look together. This look is warm and cozy while maintaining a sense of class and elegance by the choices of glassware and florals used. Yes I can definitely see myself at a wine country wedding here!

Custom Wedding Invitations are Here!

Introducing my new line of custom digital wedding invitation sets and table numbers!

It’s amazing to me how an event or helming someone can organically lead you to a place in your creativity you never realized you had. This is exactly what happened to me recently. It started when our older daughter asked me to design and create a pattern for her wedding. She wasn’t exactly sure of what elements she wanted. So, I just started an electronic file of various florals and greenery elements that I had drawn that I was able to add to as she gave me ideas of what she wanted.

Well, the next thing I know she asked me if I could or would design an invitation for her. I thought – okay, I had created a wedding invitation before for her cousin, so why not? Well, this expanded into me creating several invitations, along with the parts that go along with them as well as matching table numbers for each set. Before I knew it, I had a complete product line.

They turned out so beautiful that I decided I had to share them with you! These floral and beach inspired wedding invitation sets are not only beautiful, but versatile as well. Not only can they be used for a wedding, but for other occasions as well. They could be used for a bridal or baby shower, birthday party, anniversary party, graduation or any event where an invite is required.

The added parts makes responding and meal selections a breeze. The details card is great for directions or hotel information or any other type of specific information your guests might need.
