What a pretty week we are having! This little ditty was sent into us from Randi Moore from RSVP Special Events & Design. She styled this table setting for a recent bridal event and because the set up was so gorgeous and full of great inspiration, we felt it should have a life longer than the event so we’re sharing it with you today. The theme was inspired by the new Lilly Pulitzer wedding dress collection and all the great bridesmaid dresses they have too. Randi envisioned all the details in bright colors and carried out her ideas in the linens, place cards, flowers and decor. Think vibrant patterns, eye-popping colors, texture and sweet treats. Super cute eh? Read below to find out more about all the work that went into creating this table setting.
Everyone couldn’t help but smile when they walked into our Fresh Squeezed Love wedding design! We infused the design with the bold & warm citrus colors of lemons, limes, oranges, and pink grapefruits. We were inspired by the story of an independent female entrepreneur: Lilly Pulitzer! Her company started by creating dresses that would hide the citrus stains from making smoothies; so we too used those bright colors and filled the vases with those same sliced fruits! A tin bucket beside the table was filled with fruits left over from the “pick.”
We are so in love with the new line of wedding gowns available from Lilly Pulitzer at Designer Bride! We picked two of her gowns for our models; one was a short retro gown with a big bow at the front center of the waist, and the other was a long A-line gown with various kinds of eyelet fabric and a detachable train. We found some similar embroidered lace and wrapped it around tall glass vases to give them a truly unique look. Then we made a table runner, cake linen, and lanterns of eyelet. We were so inspired by Lilly Pulitzer’s gift at combining different patterns with ribbon accents and making it all work together, that we made 6 different chair covers using various cheerful fabrics and ribbon. We created an escort card display by hanging different kinds of vintage ribbons and clothes-pinning the escort cards to the ribbons. The stationary also matched the bold floral patterns in our design.
The table design looked good enough to eat with vintage candies like lemon gummy slices, green rock candy lollipops, and ribbon candy as the escort cardholder at each place setting. The table featured chargers with a whimsical flower pattern, bamboo flatware, glasses shaped like tulips, and antique pink glass candy dishes. One large centerpiece filled with citrus fruits stole the show; four vases covered with lace surrounded it. The vases were all filled with beautiful yellow calla lilies, pink roses, white hydrangeas, and orange daisies.
An antique rolling garden cart completed the look and was filled with lemon grass, moss covered purses with flowers tucked inside, and miniature Lilly Pulitzer tunic dresses. The cake table had a ruffled eyelet linen to match the gowns and the table runner; on it rested pink and yellow watering cans overflowing with fresh flowers. Brides visiting our design completed their Fresh Squeezed Love experience by each receiving a flower shaped lollipop.
