Tablescaping 101 – Beach Weddings!

Photo by Dianna Hart Photography,  www.DiannaHart.com

Even though your wedding budget might not include a posh Caribbean resort, you can still share a little beach love with delicious ideas for a beach tablescape (and beach favors, too!).

Some cute ideas to consider:

Beach junk + Citrus + Blue Hyacinth (atop a mirrored base)

A little sand, some driftwood, pieces of fishing net surround a clear container holding fresh hyacinth and limes – how beachy-easy is that?  Dress up the table with the elegant solid chrome shell bottle stopper in a coordinating personality box, or keep it eco-friendly and casual with bamboo!

Conch – From Fritters to Fabulous Centerpiece!

It makes good soup, too – but did you ever think about conch as a centerpiece?  Stuff with damp oasis, insert flowers and voila!  Beach-perfection!  Accent each place setting with a polished shell place card holder – put some engagement photos of the two of you around in the shell frames, and send your guests home with Beach Memories in these clever little photo albums!

Fabulous Fish-scapes!

Simple gold fish in a simply lovely crystal bowl, the glass pebbles at the bottom reflecting the colors of your beautiful day.  Accent with tea light candles flickering in lovely light house-themed holders, and mark each place with the delightful silver-toned miniature sailboat place card holders.  The favor to remember?  Kissing fish, of course!

Have a Ball!

Oh this one is just plain fun! Brightly colored tablecloths, beach balls already in the air so let’s get the sand castles up on the tables to act as candle holders and place card holders, sprinkle around some sassy flip flop frames with souvenir pics of you and your new husband, and be sure to say thank you with the super-cute shell bottle opener – presentation ready complete with a thank you tag!

Happy Planning!  :)

Up Close and Personalized with A New Favor Launch!

The word is OUT and love is in the air with love birds  and kissing fish and a whole new world of personalized favors at Kate Aspen!  Woo Hoo!

We all dream about a White Christmas – how romantic is that?  Our newlywed Brooke’s husband whisked her off for a surprise trip to the Biltmore House this weekend, and, well, they were certainly surprised!  Here are the pics  she posted late last night  of their “normally” four hour trip from Atlanta to Asheville, NC…

They were just 15 miles from Biltmore and immobile on the road, waiting for the snowplow.  Last update, snowplow coming through by 11 pm.  Doing the math, I’m guessing the trip up will take them 8 or 9 hours, maybe?

So in honor of Brooke and Trent’s White Christmas Snow Journey, enjoy some beautiful winter-themed wedding ideas!



Stay warm!
