Table Top Tuesday 13

By Odalys Mendez

For installment thirteen of Table Top Tuesday,  we are inspired by these luminous film images from Odalys Mendez.  It’s a magical table top setting in the woods filled with pretty little details thanks to Kristine Cholakian, Holly Carlisle and Simply Charming Socials.

By Odalys Mendez

What makes this work? The serene setting with sun peeping through the trees draws the eye in.  Also, the light wood tables + chairs add a nice contrast to the greenery backdrop.

What details make a difference?  Sweet chair adornments like above, black candles in assorted brass candle sticks and the flower arrangements are definitely the highlight.  The use of berries and fruit add great texture to the tablescape.

Table Top Tuesday | 12

 Peaches and  Mint Photography

For installment twelve of Table Top Tuesday,  we are inspired by this elegant table scape by Rock Paper Scissors Events captured beautifully by Peaches & Mint Photography at our favorite vintage wedding venue in New York, The Metropolitan Building.

 What makes this work?  The sherbert toned chairs with white and matching peach flowers create balance.  The deeper toned napkins and runner add a bit of drama and a great backdrop to showcase place settings.

What details make a difference?  The natural edge of the white linen table cloth and the relaxed placement of the runner provides a more welcoming vibe juxtaposed to the formal chairs and grand wood table.
