How to Infuse Your Tablescape with the Prettiest Garden Details

Spring may be months away (tear!) but this all-star team of vendors is giving you all the inspiration you need to infuse your tablescapes with the prettiest of garden details. Tucked inside are endless ideas for floral displays, place setting vignettes and more crafted by Madison Sanders Events along with florals by Victorian Gardens. Get inspired to celebrate Spring a wee bit early with even more photographed by Jordan Brittley right here in the vault.

From the Photographer… I’ve been thinking that maybe place settings need a little loving! You’re about to see place settings that make you just a little weak in the knees. What guest wouldn’t want to sit down and feel pampered with place settings like these? Madison makes everything feel inviting – whether it’s chic and simple or elegant and elaborate! We couldn’t resist the boutonnieres and bouquet from Amy of Victorian Gardens, either. It always adds such a lovely touch to let the floral design inspire the rest of the design – including place settings. Here, you’ll find 2 different table setups that compliment each other and a variety of ways couples can create unique, chic place settings. 

 

From the Wedding Planner… I was so thrilled when approached by Jordan Brittley to collaborate with Victorian Gardens on some Spring Table Top Inspiration! When discussing our favorite elements to include in chic weddings, beautiful floral and soft, romantic accents topped the list. We instantly started scheming fresh ways to set a table top with a variety of paper pieces, flowers and tableware configurations to make it special for guests and fun for the couple! The ideas we created could be utilized at parties both big and small. We might even suggest incorporating some of these set ups to accent the place settings for your guests of honor – just the bride and groom or the entire bridal party. The finest details make the most memorable parties and we are encouraging our clients to think outside the box when designing their tables. Here’s some inspiration for your lovely tables because want to see more of you in the place settings!

From Creative Films… Jillian and Brent wanted nothing more than to spoil their guests with comfort food, great music and cocktails as they celebrated their beginning to marriage. Their event design was inspired by the architectural elements found in their ceremony and reception venue, the importance of Southern hospitality and the soft colors of spring. The Brass on Baltimore is a historic Kansas City building that has been renovated and is now a highly sought-after event space. The reading of love letters to one another during their traditional ceremony invited guests into their story. The day was filled with intention and personal touches such as a Groom’s Cake donning the Chicago skyline (the Groom’s hometown) and a special visit by their pup, Sadie during portraits. Even the couple’s wedding date held special meaning as it was the Bride’s parent’s 28th wedding anniversary.

How a Horse Farm Was Transformed Into A Dreamy Elegant Wedding

This is not your average farm wedding. No, this farm wedding from Simple Elegance goes above and beyond with tent construction on the Bride’s family horse farm, a magician, a cigar roller, bourbon tasting, a photo booth, fireworks, and a collection of Ford trucks from the Groom’s family business. Accented with beautiful florals from Sidelines, it was the perfect spring day. See it all from Adrienne Maples and Anecdotally Yours in The Vault!

From The Bride…How do you meet the love of your life? Fate calls your name and you change a standing happy hour date with a friend at The Gaf from Tuesday to Wednesday night. That’s how Lindsey Patterson, owner of Coffee Girls Café in Waldo, met Matt Smith. He was there for his weekly Wednesday after-work drink with a former work colleague, Bob. As Smith and Bob were leaving, Bob spotted the two pretty girls sitting outside and coaxed Smith into buying them a drink. An official first date between Patterson and Smith came a month later after a few more “get to know you” happy hours at The Gaf.

Exactly one year later, after a first anniversary dinner at Pierpont’s at Union Station, a wedding proposal came on bended knee. The groom arranged for all the beautiful moments of the proposal to be captured covertly by a photographer friend of Smith, disguised with a moustache, so the unsuspecting bride would be surprised. That important picture became the “Save the Date” card, and the planning for the May 2014 wedding began.

Patterson, having traded a corporate life of black pants and a cubicle three-and-a-half years ago for a coffee shop, knew they both wanted a fun, comfortable and stress-free wedding, reception and after party. Their first phone call was to Michael Beers to secure his band for the reception. Kindra Browne of Simple Elegance and Karyn Brooke AIFD from Sidelines Custom Floral Designs were enlisted to coordinate the wedding details, which included tent construction at the Patterson family horse farm, a magician, a cigar roller, bourbon tasting, a photo booth, fireworks and a collection of Ford trucks from the groom’s family business, Dick Smith Ford, for the men in his party to use on the farm the day of the wedding. After a relaxing day at the farm, complete with hair and makeup for the girls and skeet shooting at Saddle & Sirloin Club for the guys, the wedding party arrived by trolley from the farm to St. Thomas More Catholic Church. The well-orchestrated wedding also included a reception, cocktail hour, dinner and after party.

Patterson had one request for her May wedding: trees. Sidelines Custom Floral Designs worked with Rosehill Gardens to fill the inside and outside of the reception tent with blooming dogwood trees in pink and white. In addition, the bride’s grandfather crafted two 10-foot-long wedding party tables out of walnut, and one of them found a final home after the wedding at Coffee Girls Café. The two tables were filled with hedges blooming with blue hyacinths, one of Patterson’s favorite flowers. In another nod to her family, the bride gifted all her guests with her grandmother’s famous “Cowboy Cookies.”

Patterson’s father kept a watchful eye on the skyline and right at sunset, the newlywed couple were captured in its rosy glow, a picture-perfect end to their pastoral wedding. However, that was not the end of the celebrations. The elegant evening concluded with after-party dancing to the music of Michael Beers Band, late-night snacks and festive fireworks illuminating the country night sky.
