Think Pink!

August 9, 2011

Nothing adds a little pizzazz like a pink sequined linen! You can’t go wrong when you start out with such a beautiful foundation for a table setting.  We found those lovely flower graphic plates and used our own purple glass chargers that match the dessert plates.  For name tags we took a que from the plates and re-created a similar graphic.
Picking up on the sparkle of the sequined linen, we grabbed some of our metallic silver containers for centerpieces.  Continuing with the shine, we found fabulous jeweled candles, mirrored candle sticks, silver napkin ring, silver mercury glass votives and used our fabulous mirrored side table!  With all that sparkle make sure that you let the light in!  Natural light is always preferable, so set up outside or open up those windows!

The pink didn’t stop with the linen either: we used different types of flowers in varying shades of pink for our centerpieces, pink glasses, pink cupcakes and a delicious pink cocktail garnished with a fresh raspberry.  To top it all off those ghost chairs take this brunch to a whole other level of chic – and they are comfortable too! Who would have guessed?

Always take a look through your own stash of goodies to see what you can add from your own personal style.  Layering is just as important as the items you choose – and balanced with that is knowing when to take away certain things.  Always bring an editing eye when creating a tablescape, just because you have it doesn’t mean you have to use it.  Make sure that it makes sense with the story you’re telling.
