The table with two-parted inspiration begins with the stubbornly seasonal coral peony and is accented with French-inspired details. A year ago, when coral peony was last in season, I was dreaming of all of its beautiful potential. With it's dramatic color and exceptional bloom size, I imagined a bold design. Navy blue is the perfect complimentary color to coral and a white and navy striped table cloth would certainly add the bold element that I was hoping for while a blue toile napkin added sophistication. Paired with gold and the Louis XIV inspired white centerpiece riser and clear acrylic ghost chairs, the look begins to reflect a modern version of Versailles.
Accents of yellow, purple, pinks and greens add to the uplifting spring essence. Both exciting and elegant, this look makes such a statement, "Je t'aime bold et belle!". Pink garden roses always enhance the romance while bright yellow cloony ranunculus brighten the mood. Draping greens allow me to imagine dancing in a french meadow of flowers with a soft breeze steering my imagination towards mon amour.
The most perfect addition to this table is the incredibly gorgeous lettering of the menu cards created by Etleterra. Like writing poetry, the words of food appeal to the words of love. Love is certainly felt in the individually scripted menu cards lettered in iridescent blue which look as if the bride wrote individual love notes to each guest.
Bold, beautiful and detailed with love, our French-inspired table beckons romance. We reveal our romantic side in this table design.
