As you may remember from one of Marina’s posts earlier this year about 2016 wedding trends, one of the glitziest looks on the list was Lustre. Described by the International Floral Distributers, who compiled the list and are a leading authority in the floral design world, as the following:
“The Lustre event combines all the colors and textures of amazing alloys. Gold, silver, copper, platinum, bronze and rose gold are all in this luxe trend. Black and white ground this color palette and offers a beautiful, graphic contrast to the richness of the metallics.”
We gathered inspiration from this description and created a two different versions of a guestbook table look that features our new Metallic Gold Greenery Combo Box. Using a block of Oasis foam in a long, low metallic bowl (a great thrift store find!) we created an arrangement that incorporated the perpetually popular Ivory White Hydrangea with some Vanilla Cream Petite Roses sprinkled in for a little size and textural variation. Check it out!
Props included in these tablescapes: Matte black tablecloth, Gold sequined table runner, White feather quill pen (we spray painted the base gold), “Love Never Fails” binder. Mirrored gold tray and brass bowl were brought from home.
For the backdrop, we created a similar setup to what we put together for our Baby’s Breath styled shoot a couple weeks ago. This time, we alternated strips of off-white and sheer gold tulle to offset the plain black tablecloth, while picking up the shimmer from the tinted greenery. We switched out the table runner and seat assignment cards to show two slightly different looks that could be created using the same arrangement. One that leans into glitzy glamour completely, with a gold sequined table runner and mirrored gold tray, and one that takes a bit more subtle approach, with a matte gold lace table runner and some extra leaves of Silver Dollar Eucalyptus serving as the place cards.
Will you go full-blown glam for your guestbook table? Or opt for some understated shimmer for your arrivals? Either way, the Metallic Gold Greenery Combo Box will make your big day shine!
