For installment fourteen of Table Top Tuesday, I am overwhelmed by the light simplicity created by Jessica Sloane and captured beautifully by Jessica Loren. This wedding’s table top blows me away with an airy and classic feeling. It’s so well done!
What makes this work? The choice of vines and airy greenery used throughout. The ivy vines creep over place settings and down the center of tables perfectly adding an organic feeling. I simply adore the strategically placed fruit as well.
What details make a difference? The neutral table cloth + napkin set the tone for the texture of the greenery and florals to shine. The natural wood chairs also add to the earthy natural feel.

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.
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.

Maybe it’s my early training in textiles + love for unique fabrics, but when a collection like Elie Saab’s Spring / Summer 2015 comes around you just have to stop, stare and be thankful that such craftsmanship still exists in fashion today. This collection is truly a work of art and offers endless inspiration for weddings + beyond. Here are my favorites, apparently I am partial to a full skirt.

The entire fashion show is pretty amazing too: Elie Saab Paris Couture Week Spring Summer 2015
We jumped at the chance when Viva Max Weddings asked us to showcase some vintage china, flatware + table top items at a Brooklyn Grange Farm photo shoot. We love the idea of a roof top urban farm and better yet, hosting a wedding there! This shoot was recently featured in Well Wed magazine, here are some of our favorite photos.

What would a brunch be like if hosted by the fashionably French, life-long vegetarian and original bohemian, Brigitte Bardot? This is it: A sweet soirée filled with fresh flowers, brie, rosemary and fig toast, a little bubbly and a homemade cake topped with daisies, of course.
This was a fun project with some great folks (credits below) featured on Ruffled this week!

This image is flawless. Not only is model Evelyn Tripp stunning, but the larger than life blooms casually thrown over her shoulder while wearing an evening gown is brilliant. Evelyn appeared on over 40 magazine covers starting with the 1949 January cover of Vogue. She was a true testament to the glamor of the times.

For installment six of Table Top Tuesday, I stumbled upon this colorful table top inspiration from Vicki Grafton Photography + Stefanie Kapra Photography.
What makes this work? Fresh pops of spring time color! The orange, pink and yellow flowers bring life to this table top. I love the single buds strewn about and the spray of pink ombre stock flower tied with a sunshine yellow ribbon. If I were a guest at this party, it would immediately make me smile.
What details make a difference? The white calligraphy is so elegant on the light brown escort cards and menu and again, the flowers. The scabiosa pods add a wonderful contrast in texture to all of the very soft blooms. So well done!

A while ago, I started a tomato / garden bride pinterest board simply because the colors of heirloom tomatoes make my heart skip a beat. For brides planning toward 2014, this would be wonderful August or September inspiration. Enjoy.
