It may be Halloween but that means winter, and winter weddings, are right around the corner so we’re bringing you a Winter Wonderland today on the blog. I’m so excited to share these pictures with you of our winter tablescape in the front of StudioWed Atlanta! I could stare at this tablescape for hours and not get tired of it but then again, I’m biased! The talented Janet Howard of Janet Howard Studio shot every detail of the tablescape for us to share with you!
We decided to bring you inspiration for a “Natural Glam” winter event and our fantastic vendor team could not have done a better job executing this look! Choosing to have a rustic wedding doesn’t mean you have to just use mason jars and twine, you can add other natural elements and textures to create an elegant rustic look.
There are so many amazing elements of this tablescape that I don’t even know where to start this stylish tour! Heath, one of the brilliant artists behind Jackson Durham, outdid himself with this centerpiece consisting of a tall, silver candelabra with an arrangement of red tulips and roses, berries, greenery, and pinecones and branches sitting atop, capped off with a lamp shade covered in bark. Accented with dripping crystals and dusted with snow. Talk about WOW factor! The base is surrounded by crystal and silver mercury glass candle holders that keeps the eye moving to every element.
We can’t go any further on this tour without talking about the biggest pieces: the furniture. Mirrored table on a barrel anyone? Jackson Durham can do it. Rustic sofa seating on one side with wood grain pillows? Settee Event Decor can provide it. Barrel to highlight your cake? Just talk to Heath. One of the best features of the mirrored table is that your centerpiece and décor doesn’t just end when the base touches the table, it continues on into the mirror, reflecting back up for your guests to see another dimension of the design.
So I mentioned that the cake is displayed on a barrel, sitting on a bed of snow but we need to talk about the cake itself. This cake is pure perfection! Melonie of For Goodness Cakes outdid herself with this four-tiered, rustic winter statement. Red sugar rose petals falling down the snow-capped tiers, faux wood fondant pieces mimicking the wood grain of the barrels. A delightful winter masterpiece that matches the design perfectly plus tastes just as good!
Adding to the winter feel is the “blanket of snow” covering the ground and running along the center of the table. We got this look with the help and genius of Tamara with I Do Linens. Since we couldn’t actually bring snow in, we got the next best thing: white, fur linens. The runner helps bring the table together and bring your attention to the centerpiece. The carpet finishes the look and separates the table from the rest of the space while adding comfort and warmth. Event Drapery provided the backdrop of red velour drape to transport you to the middle of this winter wonderland event.
Now for the little things that make a big impact. Let’s start with the stationary! Sarah of Foglio Press created some stunning works of art on paper for this tablescape. The stationary to go along with this reception décor is clean while making a big impact. The invitation (recognize our bride and groom from one of your favorite holiday movies?) fits inside a natural wood pocket envelope, bringing in a natural pop of red and tied together with a silk dupioni ribbon in platinum. The platinum continues in the menus where the entrees are printed in red on translucent paper, revealing a platinum pattern underneath.
The finishing touches of this tablescape came from We Rent Atlanta where we were able to pick out everything we needed including the gorgeous Chivari chairs in Gunmetal. We set the table with We Rent’s elegant Estate Platinum china which can make any event glamorous. The silver baroque flatware and array of We Rent Atlanta’s glassware tie together each place setting, finished with a red napkin from I Do Linens for a pop of color.
