Carrie of Carrie House Photography says, “The soft color palette of pinks, grays, and blues make this wedding applicable to any season, especially fall or spring. The table décor ties in many unique details such as fresh figs, a colored linen runner, place cards designed by Fig & Flourish, and an array of candles.”
Layered linens like the cascading runner across the table are a simple way to add interest to a white table without having to add tons of décor. (And it’s a huge money saver, too!)
Natural décor pieces add an ethereal element to the tablescape that melds beautifully with the wedding’s outdoor setting.
Carrie says, “The finishing piece to this look is the handcrafted floral piece that matches the bouquet, boutonnière, and centerpieces. This small detail also helps carry the theme throughout a wedding by keeping a cohesive look and feel.”
Thinking of re-creating a scene like this for your big day? A few well-placed details go a long way, like the décor Molly McKinley Designs styled for their table. Blue-toned linens and calligraphed place cards are a small touch with a big impact.
