As, I am fond of saying - It's a matter of personal preference as to whether you will infuse color into your event or not. This above picture is from a wedding we did for our bride Jen. Silver revere bowls filled lushly with cream hydrangea and ivory roses. When the lights come down, these are bound to look spectacular! Cream colored linens are the perfect back drop to the silver tones of the base and are carried into the silver cane of the chairs. Simple and elegant, this direction is always classic.
Spring flowers in various shades of blue and purple are accented with soft foliage styled in a white ceramic footed compote. A pop of color on the ivory cloth gives a gentle yet sutble look. Because the compote blends with the table linens the container is less noticeable.
Here's the same white compote filled with deeper tones on a deep blue table cloth. What a difference, right? This time the container pops out and becomes more noticed.
These pretty floral centerpieces sit high atop a clear glass vase. They truly appear to float above the heads of the guests. This vase could easily have been filled with a flowers, gems, petals, stones or even leaves but the clearness allows guests any easy view across the table.
When trying to decide if you should incorporate color in your table arrangement, don't forget to consider the impact of the container being used!!
