For installment nine of Table Top Tuesday, I was taken by the grey linen runners and most delicate greens strategically placed by Leaves of Grass Floral Design in these beautiful images by Emily Wren.
What makes this work? The softness of the table with candle light and delicate greens atop a natural grey linen runner is the perfect contrast to the industrial cement walls of the venue.
What details make a difference? Leafy vines stretched out over the runner and loosely placed greens in small vases set the scene for an elegant candle lit dinner. The grey linen runner ties in the grey venue walls perfectly!

It’s no secret that I love flowers. I also love vintage vases + vessels to display them in. Here are my top 6 vintage centerpiece ideas for weddings! (above photo by Kate Ignatowski)
1. The Drinking Glass. Pressed glass goblets make a sweet addition to any table. They glow under candlelight + look great clustered together with different heights. (photo by Jen Huang)
2. The Brass Vessel. For those who are using gold as an accent color, there is no other way to go than a brass vessel or vase. Aged brass adds a richness to floral displays. (photo by Ciara Richardson)
3. The Colorful Tin. Sweet tea + candy tins add a splash of color and conversation to the table. Fill the tins with neutral flowers and greens for a calmer feeling or coordinating colors for a bright + bold look. (photo by Jana Morgan)
4. The Silver Vessel. Tarnished silver vessels give an heirloom quality to an event, as if you borrowed items from a grandmother. Silver pitchers, teapots + even small sugar bowls look great when used in an assortment together. (photo by Kate Ignatowski)
5. The Bottle. New or old, bottles in a variety of sizes and shapes act as simple yet sophisticated bud vases. Adding a tray or print napkin underneath adds some interest to the design. (photo by Justin + Mary)
I just had to share a few photos that photographer Fiona Melder captured at Purslane Catering‘s recent luncheon at 501 Union. We were so happy to see our mismatched floral plates, three tier china stands, salt + pepper shakers + clear pressed glass goblets adorning the grand wood table. Starling on Bond provided some lovely flowers + styling too. Beautiful set up everyone!

For installment eight of Table Top Tuesday, I am spellbound by the simplicity and elegance of this tablescape photographed by Adam Barnes and designed by Ashley Barber Weddings.
What makes this work? The natural color story is the winner here! The wood runner adds just enough rustic flair rounded out by elegant micro taper candles and a trio of delicate stemware.
What details make a difference? The citrus adornments with leaves and flowers strategically placed along the wood add a softness and inviting warmth to the tablescape. I love the mother of pearl flatware as well!

For installment seven of Table Top Tuesday, I fell in love with this set of crisp table top photos by Brushfire Photography. Less is way more in this case!
What makes this work? The simple white dishes and flatware adorned with strategically placed red berries is a winner! The fresh greenery in the flower arrangement and the extended greenery garland give the table some texture as well.
What details make a difference? The amber tea light candles add a wonderful glow and they mirror the gold tone in the brass candlesticks that flank the centerpiece. Simple and so very chic.

For installment five of Table Top Tuesday, there are so many things to love with this design by Lyndsey Hamilton Events!
What makes this work? Three key elements: (1) the flatware tied with a ribbon and rosemary (2) the delicately etched glassware (3) the slate grey neutral napkin. The casual nature of the tied flatware paired with more formal etched glassware, makes this table top design stand out!
What details make a difference? The industrial pipe legged table covered in two natural fabric runners create a great balance between rugged vs. soft. The extravagant chandelier adds an over the top luxurious addition to a rustic surrounding. Perfection!

For installment three of Table Top Tuesday, I have fallen in love with these miniature arrangements in glassware on each place setting!
What makes this work? The flower arrangements. Not only are the personal cup-of-flowers the sweetest addition, but the overall color palette and flower selection makes this table scream: Spring! The stacked china rimmed with small patterns and abundance of vintage flatware adds a richness to the look as well.
What details make a difference? The centerpiece ties the small arrangements together beautifully and the ‘just picked’ garden flower look brings sunshine to this table scape.
