Warm Palette

Every Season has it's own special beauty and Autumn is no exception. We created this tablescape for the wedding cake with the warm tones and varied textures in mind. Originally, the client had asked that we do a floral swag to swoop down the side of the cake but instead we used small floral bouquets placed just so as not to detract from the simple elegance and stature of the cake itself. Everything you see behind this cake was brought in and hung on a pipe and drape system. The light coming in from the patio doors, behind the backdrop, really accented the design of the cream pintuck material. A special thanks to the head of my sewing department who is also my Mom. LOL!

Just a few elements can make a striking yet simple arrangement. White Calla Lilies with assorted tropical leaves and curly willow made this a show stopper but it's all about the right container. The glass vessels didn't get in the way of the guests but allowed the callas to fan outward. We also used curly willow to take advantage of the high ceilings in the tent.
