I am really excited to share this next inspiration with you. The wonderfully talented Kelly McWilliams of Weddings by Socialites recently designed a set of gorgeous tablescapes just for SMP readers. They are perfect for a chic, elegant bride who wants a seated dinner and they can each be crafted either by a pro or with a little help from friends!

LOVE this one. Actually, of the table settings that you are going to see from Kelly today, this one is my favorite. I just think that a simple pink rose set on each table setting, paired with the simple breezy color palette is just lovely!

From KellyPink rose blooms are just so so pretty.  On this table I wanted to create something with a light, effortless effect.  I like this for an indoor reception after a beach wedding- a brunch maybe?  We placed a single rose bloom on each taupe plate and then added the sea mist blue napkins under the plate.  This ties the candles to the base linen (apple green bengaline).  I scattered the pillar candles down the striped runner (natural sea colors) to add some unstructured character.

This one is a little more whimsical than the first…definitely geared towards a smaller affair, perhaps even an intimate but semi-casual rehearsal dinner. Love the hint of whimsy in the patterned dishware! Like I mentioned earlier, the photography is all by Impressions Photography and they are absolutely gorgeous.

We have so much more to come from Kelly at Weddings by Socialites and guess what, we have a pretty awesome surprise to coordinate with this feature!
