southern table scape series: blue and white china

southern table scape series: blue and white china

After receiving china, whether it be passed down from a family member or gifted from your wedding registry - we tend to continually set the table the same way over and over again. It’s easy, you already have the design memorized and everything needed. However in this Southern Table Scape Series we want to show you ways to simply change a few minor details for a completely different look.

be inspired by your china pieces

Use your china pieces as the inspiration for your details. This plate’s navy color is repeated in the candles and the blue touches in the floral arrangements. We pulled from the white of the blue and white and layered it with the linen and charger. Don’t over think it, repeat colors makes it easy, timeless and beautiful.

change up the linens

Whether it be in the table linens or the napkins, changing the color and texture of those details can make an impactful difference. For the look bellow, we went for a monochromatic route with the china and linens. Sometimes we are afraid to add a bold linen, but as you can see this blue on blue is so fun and different and truly highlights all the shades of blue in the china.

be bold with color

You can never go wrong with taper candles. Whether it be a more casual place setting or special occasion taper candles add another level of detail to your table setting that can really pull out fun details in your china. This is an easy color detail to continuously change.

update the flowers

And our absolute favorite, getting creative with your flower color options. This is the easiest way to drastically change your table scape, from season to season or occasion. Your flower color choices can change the entire aesthetic.

Committing to another linen, napkin, or charger might not be in the immediate list of to-do’s. Instead, order some flowers for the special dinner in a different color palette that you are used to and watch it quickly transforms a space.

Copying what we have done in our daily lives works well for most things. I tend not to reinvent how I take a shower, make my bed or brush my teeth. As we have created efficient methods that have become routine.

Designing weddings and events can fall into the same patterns. I have been guilty of this, as it also can help with efficiency and ease. And shall I say that it allows clients to feel comfortable that we are not taking risks with their special event.

On the other hand, bringing in a couple elements that might have never been introduced before can not only make your client feel special, but create intention with design. New design elements reminds us that each one of our clients is unique and that all our designs have them at the forefront of creation.

To our future clients, allow us to take some risks and meld that into what you feel comfortable with. The combination of both allows for the most beautiful events we have ever created.
