If like me, you’re a big fan of enjoying the best of the changing seasons we’re blessed with here in the UK, then you might well like this styled dining table and it’s hopeful delicate spring offerings.
I was invited to style this dining table as part of the overall visual feast for the senses that is provided at highly-regarded Buckinghamshire wedding show ‘Wedding Inspiration’
For me, my design had to be cherry blossom. I just love the wild, unstructured, slightly rustic and natural shape and feel to it, teamed with the delicate pink palette which is just a delightful welcome to spring and all its glorious colours and smells. As an extension of that, I wanted to showcase a wedding design which was elegant and upmarket but not overly conventional or classic but rather a blend of the two which is representative of the beautiful venue too.
I used a square dining table (and why not?) to seat 8 guests with an exciting combination of shiny white gloss table top and beautifully carved character wooden legs, teamed with elegant French chateau style dining chairs. I introduced more than a dash of opulence and luxe with the Valentina charger plates, delicate vintage lace dinnerware & gold cutlery. Just as I’d switched the norm of a round table for a square, I wanted to break the mould with menu cards too and do the complete opposite going for round instead of square.
As the introduction to the dining table said:
“I want orange blossoms in my hair, champagne in my hand and love in my heart” – a good motto for any joyful wedding celebration I feel!
I hope you enjoy. Thank you to all the wonderful wedding professionals who collaborated with me on bringing this to life.
