Design a Turquoise and Red Tablescape

                             in 5 easy steps

It’s nearly spring! Wow, winter just flew by, didn’t it? You know what that means: it’s the start of wedding season! Now it’s officially that time of year where we start seeing bold, bright, and pastel spring colors grace wedding tablescapes everywhere. We love the liveliness of turquoise, so for this tablescape we selected turquoise tablecloths to provide the dominant color for our tablescape. Aqua and red is becoming a very popular color combination on Pinterest for wedding inspiration, so we decided to put a spin on this trending color scheme by using our slightly lighter turquoise linens. What’s the best part about using turquoise as your primary wedding color? Stunning turquoise jewelry, of course! Turquoise is a bright color that’s not only bright and perfect for spring but also reminiscent of the semi-precious stone we all associate with the American southwest. Maybe someday we’ll feature a southwestern inspired wedding tablescape with our turquoise linens. But without further ado, it’s time to design an elegant turquoise and red tablescape for weddings, baby showers, or any other spring event!

1) As usual, we start with a blank canvas. For the purpose of this tablescape, we selected a 120 in. round turquoise tablecloth.

2) Next, we draped a table runner across the diameter of the table. Our new rosette table runners feature a multi-sized rosette texture and are perfect for providing some contrast.

3) White china complements just about any colored tablescape and is almost always a sure bet when designing tablescapes. We used a simple white plate with 17 in. red napkins in an arrow fold.

4) Next, we simply added crystal wine glasses, silverware, and more white china to complement the plates and decor that will be featured in step 5.

5) For the final details, we used a white china vase with some lovely pink and white flowers. Also, we made simple candle holders using glassware, colored stones, and white candles.
