Living Coral Table Styling

The Sefton Wedding Fair 2019

· She Styles,Wedding Fairs,Trends

This year at The Sefton Wedding Fair we decided it was time to go big or go home, so our idea to take over the whole of Harris One alongside lovely Aimee from Butterfingers Cakes came to life!

As designers and stylists we love to keep on top of up and coming trends and as soon as Pantone announced their Colour of the Year for 2019 as Living Coral we were excited to come up with a theme for our main table.

Coral has been a colour in and out of fashion over the years (remember coral taffeta Bridesmaid's dresses back in the 90s?) with the most recent being in 2017 paired with a navy blue colour scheme. We wanted to create a fresh summery look for our table with pops of yellow, pink and orange.

We started with a pristine white tablecloth and each setting had a glass gold rimmed charger plate and marble effect plates, also with a gold rim.

We chose contemporary gold rimmed glassware with twisted stems which was complemented perfectly by gold cutlery.

Each plate had a hand dyed unhemmed muslin napkin with a sprig of olive & eucalyptus sat on top. Emma designed beautiful combined menus and place names from coral card each printed with the individual menu choice, layered with vellum and finished with a lemon calligraphy place name and a real dried pressed flower.

The table names corresponded to different flowers used in the centrepiece and was layered pink and yellow card, handwritten with brush lettering.

In the centre of the table, Heidi created a loose unstructured arrangement of flowers and foliage around the arms of a gold candelabra, in shades of peach, coral, yellow and pink. Small cut glass vases containing miniature posies of blooms brought the colour down to the table.

Wooden crossback chairs were covered in hand dyed ombre coral fabric and tied with an elegant piece of satin ribbon.

The overwhelming reaction we had from people at the wedding fair when they first entered the room was 'Wow!' and that was just with one table - so imagine how breathtaking a whole event would look styled in this way!
