This month has been crazy and I haven’t had a chance to post in this category- sorry! I have a lot of weddings to get through and post, but for now, I thought I would post a few things for adding color to your event. You can see my first post for adding color to your even here.
Amy Butler is an artist who makes all sorts of things from scrapbooking supplies and cards to sewing patterns and fabrics. I love the idea of making place mats or runners for a wedding table setting out of her gorgeous fabrics. Mix up the patterns but stay in the same color scheme and you have a colorful chic backdrop for your table settings.
You may remember my recent post of Greta and Jeff’s late summer Nestldown Wedding in Los Gatos. They incoorporated eggplants and grapes into their centerpieces for color. You could do bowls of crisp green apples, platters of artichokes, or baskets of heirloom tomatoes. The possibilities are endless and can be sent home as favors. Super easy- and a “green” idea!
Another centerpiece idea that has a vintage, but modern look is metal planters with succulents plants. They are low and allow guests to see each other at the table and have wonderful texture. They are living and can be sent home with guests of honor to live on at their homes.
I am gearing up for the wedding of Patrice and James in Half Moon Bay at the Oceano Hotel this weekend- should be beautiful! Happy friday and enjoy your weekend!
