We’ve had a busy wedding season here at Calluna, and we absolutely loved seeing all of our couples’ visions come together for their big day. This week’s Coffee with Calluna will focus on tablescape trends we’ve been seeing and loving!
Though we love a classic tablescape, we are thrilled when our couples decide to layer different textures for an interesting pop. Mackenzie and Justin’s Sonnenalp Wedding was so full of beautiful textures, we didn’t know where to look first! In lieu of a linen, Mackenzie and Justin’s table was decorated with a stunning floral garland that ran the length of the tables that added dimension and color. The mixed metals of gold silverware and glasses along with rose gold chargers came together perfectly for a new twist on old classics. The chargers were topped with a mix of eclectic blue plates, and the royal blue velvet napkins brought in the final punch to create an absolute stunner. Each layer would have worked on their own, but together they really shined!
This year, a lot of our couples brought in punches of color in their tablescapes. Lauren and Walker’s Union Station reception brought all the glitz and glam with their gold settings and blush velvet napkins. The tablescape was still elegant and classic but the luxe, vibrant florals brightened up the room with their different textures and jewel tones.
When your venue is so beautiful, a minimal tablescape that enhances the background is all you need. Emily and John brought in farm tables for their intimate backyard summer wedding. The tables were topped with small bud vases and gold votives. Guests enjoyed dining al fresco during golden hour!
A lot of couples have been going back to basics with chic runner and tapered candles. Though deceptively simple, grouping tapered candles with some greenery can really elevate the design. Brooke + Christian used a mix of gold candlesticks in hurricanes for different heights along with light gauzy runners and a simple ivy and loose blooms garland. This flooded the room with candlelight and provided a romantic, whimsical environment.
We love seeing organic, flowing floral installations, and we especially love it when it is incorporated into a tablescape! With crawling vines and small tendrils, smilax was the star of the show as it hung above this tablescape. Using traditional and non traditional florals, Hannah and Will’s head table was adorned with an installation that seemed as if it was overflowing onto the table from the ceiling!
