Vintage Chic Table Inspiration
April 30, 2010

As promised, it’s tablescape #2 of 4 from beautiful Ponte Family Estate in Temecula. We call this one “Vintage Chic.” I look at this photo and everything about it makes me happy. I love the various textures and the way the florals pop. Simply beautiful….but how did we put it all together? We began by taking one look at this linen from Fusion and knowing we had to use it for the tablescape.

Check out the detailed trim and beading on the overlay.

Jessica (Jessica Elizabeth Photography) and I love to shop. We found these plates and knew they would compliment our linen perfectly. I fell in love with the contrast of the copper brown charger between the plates and overlay. 

Admittedly, I was not excited about the inner corners of the chargers showing, so Kelly of The Olive Rose came to the rescue with some lovely feathers.

We wanted to add some fun items to tie the entire look together. Can I tell you how much I LOVE this vase? I love it so much that I paid full price even though it had a huge crack down the back. Upon purchase, I sent a text to Kelly and told her we needed to add some fun white feathers for the vase. As you can see,she delivered on that vision.

Another piece I simply couldn’t part with…I kept if for my own collection.

What girl does not love a brooch? So many uses – place them on the napkins for your head table, pin them on your bridal bouquet,or tie them in with your hairpiece/veil.

The gorgeous florals consisted of hellebores, thistle, hypericum, mini cymbidium orchids, & amnesia and leonida roses.  

Can you believe Kelly designed these beautiful arrangements by only reading texts and emails? I think that clearly shows a higher level of talent.

I love Peacock feathers, but I would have never guessed how amazing they would look with the soft florals Kelly selected. The design is so romantic.

Notice the copper and aqua beads? I almost didn’t pick those up, but for some reason I couldn’t get them out of my head. A tiny detail, but now that I see them in the photo I think they were well worth the 15 minute stop.

So you’re planning your own wedding? This photo makes you happy but you’re not sure how to put it all together? Rest assured you don’t need to replicate each element. Select a few items you love and build upon them. Maybe you learned you love peacock feathers mixed with soft florals, or perhaps you want to incorporate a brooch. OR could it be the aqua-copper combination that you love? Whatever it is, I hope this tablescape is a source of inspiration in planning your own wedding. Happy planning!

A special thank you to Robert and Jessica of Jessica Elizabeth Photography for these gorgeous photos.

And a big thank you to Kelly Manson of The Olive Rose for designing these lovely florals.
