Inspired Tablescape – Shades of Jade and Doilies Galore

Feb 3

Back in December, I posted a beautiful photo from Twigs & Honey – I found the colors completely inspiring and, as it turns out, so did Ami of Elizabeth Anne Designs. After a bit of brainstorming and a lot of shared inspiration, one thing led to another and we decide to run with our mutual love of Myra’s photo and collaborate on a fun little project to show how you can take a photo or object you love and use it to form the basis of the design for your wedding. After several weeks of sharing ideas, I’m excited to finally share the results with you! First thing first – pop over to Elizabeth Anne Designs for the inspiration board she created based on this photo from Myra of Twigs & Honey:

Once Ami had dreamed up a fabulous inspiration board, I set to work bringing it to life in the form of a beautiful yet approachable tablescape design filled with simple, pretty details that brides of any budget and any DIY skill level could easily recreate without having to rely on an event planner. I envisioned this wedding as an intimate afternoon affair with a lunch reception featuring pretty desserts and great champagne served in delicate coupes. Once I had the details worked out, I teamed up with one of my favorite photographers, the delightfully hilarious Coco-loving Rochester, NY wedding photographer Megan Dailor, and spent a Sunday afternoon capturing all of the details to share with you. I have loads of photos and details to share throughout the day, but first up, a glimpse at the result…








Back in a bit with more incredible photos from Megan and full details on all the elements including source lists and prices. Stay tuned!
