Design a Coral Tablescape for Spring Weddings
In 5 Easy Steps
Last week, we got a chance to show off our new coral tablecloths with our “Design a Vintage Coral Tablescape” post. This week, a customer asked us to design a tablescape featuring our new coral overlay. We were super excited to design our first tablescape by request, and using our brand new coral overlay just made it that much better! Would you like to request a particular tablescape design for our blog? Just fill out this form. Anyway, enough talk, let’s get to designing our featured tablescape:
1) As usual, we start with a blank canvas. We used a 108 in. round polyester tablecloth in white and topped it off with a 60 in. square organza overlay in coral. See the lights above? We’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of our paper lanterns, and now that they’re here we can’t help but show them off!
2) For step 2, we simply added plates. White China really pops on a coral overlay, don’t you think?
3) This is where it gets tricky. We already established white and coral as our two dominant colors, so the hard part was choosing complimenting napkins. In the end, we went for navy because it matched blue in the floral arrangement seen in step 5. Do you like the napkin fold? It’s called a “French fold” and you can click here for an easy tutorial.
4) Next, add your stemware and flatware. Remember, the knife always faces the plate!
5) It’s time for the finishing touches! This tablescape has a nice, simple look, so we decided to take the minimalist’s approach in choosing centerpieces. For the vase, we followed this tutorial and spray painted a glass vase to make faux-milk glass. The two other pieces are glass candle holders filled with some shiny stones and white candles.
Here’s a closer look at the centerpieces:
