a winter palette revisited: adding blush to the all white table scape

We sure do love an all white event. We are a sucker for a classic look as it allows us to concentrate on details and textures that we love. But there is always room in these classic color palettes to add a little touch of the unexpected.

In the wedding industry we see blush all the time. But have you seen in at an event, private dinner or Holiday party? It’s a rare day. So we though we would bring you inspiration on how to add a small touch that won’t send us to the super feminine side and yet give an all white table scape a bit of a facelift.

Here are three easy ways to add a touch of color to your holiday party.

ONE

Let the textures be in the color scheme you are wanting to highlight

We created these arrangements in all white and green and allowed the accents of berries to be in blush. This snuck in the color with out overwhelming the color palette. We also added an unexpected blush/copper texture that we then used through out the decor. These sprayed fern were such a beautiful touch that we then manicured for the place settings.

TWO

Add a touch of color in your candles

There are so many color palettes that are not able to be created due to availability of flowers, or even quality of the product we receive. Candles are a guaranteed splash a color that can be added with no fuss.

THREE

Add a fabric overlay via a table runner of soft fabric that can be placed over the table.

Adding a layer of fabric on top of the linen helps create an ethereal look that we love. It’s soft and romantic and allows us to add that touch of color. For this specific look we bunched up areas while also allowing the fabric to gently hang of either sides, the front and the back.

fresh winter colors

Ever wonder how to incorporate winter colors to your event without doing the typically all too seen color schemes; red/white/green or the white/silver?  Well we created a design board to help your creative juices flowing.  After yesterday's photo shoot, we got inspired!! Combining natures winter colors of browns with neutrals, gold and blush can help keep it fresh, light and still in season.

Our trick to combining these browns and neutrals in the florals was to bring in magnolia leaves, christmas bush, and wild grasses. We added a blush Quicksand rose and many other textures to compliment those colors, but tried to stay as neutral as possible.  The muted colors of winter can be accented with gold containers, candles, and dish wear to bring a more sophisticated tone.

Thanks to Candice from Lots of Lovely and Alicia Pyne from Alicia Pyne Photography  for reaching out to me to provide the florals for the shoot.  These were their inspiration and was more than happy to make this come to life.  I can't to see the images as everything was absolutely gorgeous.
