Coral & Ivory in Cathedral Park

Coral is the chosen Pantone Color of the Year for 2019 and we’re definitely feeling it.  During our latest photo-shoot at Cathedral Park in Portland, OR, we got some great shots of an ivory and coral tablescape.  Interested to see what went into creating this captivating color combo? Keep reading for the full breakdown!


If you really want an accent color to pop, like coral, use a more subtle base color.  Since white is a very stark contrast for any color, we chose a softer ivory for our tablecloth.  On a 48 in. round table, this 118 in. Round Shantung Silk Tablecloth in Ivory puddles a bit. The extra fabric gives the table a more rounded look which further eases the harsh cut off of a hem line. Since the tablecloth is bigger and the ends tucked under the table, it’s also harder for the tablecloth to fly upwards with gusts of wind.  If you prefer a clean drop, we recommend using a 108 in. round tablecloth. 

To break up the endless ivory and give another layer of depth to the table, we used a 14 x 108 in. Sheer Table Runner with Ivory Roses.  Bright 18 in. Shantung Silk Coral Napkins and flowers draw the eye away from the tablecloth. However, thanks to the pop of roses and flowing green vines in the runner, the gaze continues downward completing our table.


Speaking of the bright flowers, this tablescape mainly features 10 in. Silk Peony Bouquets in Pink, Peach Champagne, and Ivory.  11 in. Silk Roses in Peach were also sprinkled in the mix. Holding the arrangement together is a Rectangular Oxidized Copper Bucket.  Add rocks, scraps of cloth, or Styrofoam to the bottom of your centerpiece tins to cut down the amount of flowers you need. If you choose to use real flowers, we suggest adding some water to the bucket.  This will keep your flowers fresh and vibrant even in the summer sun!


Polished gold creates a warm accent on the coral napkins while complimenting the other ivory linen. You’ll find Gold Beaded Clear Glass Charger Plates and Curved Gold Silverware.

Whether under a suspension bridge or placed in a dazzling event venue, you can’t go wrong with coral and ivory.  Share your creations on our Facebook and Instagram for a chance to be featured on our site and social media platforms!
