Colorado Destination Wedding

Amanda and Kevin were married in the Garden of Gods park on a beautiful October day with a few of their closest friends and family. It was such a joy to work with them to design their destination wedding.

I was so excited when Amanda asked me to style her reception. She wanted a modern Southwest design, which I love because it’s full of rich colors and textures!

The table setting was made up of two-toned flatware-matted black and gold, classic ivory plates, a textured charcoal linen napkin, and a beautiful grey-blue goblet. I loved the contrast of black, natural wood, and golds. The flowers were a mix of roses, dahlias, sedum, montbresia, pee-gee hydrangea, eucalyptus, thistle, berries, succulents, pods, and other dried elements.

Summer Tablescape

Summer is almost here! I love creating tablescapes for any type of occasion! It doesn't have to be complicated. I can create something beautiful with items that are special to you or items you already have in your home. 

Last year, I had the opportunity to create a gorgeous tablescape using items from my backyard as well as flowers found in Colorado gardens for Colorado Collective. Mary Andrews helped me plan the table setting with dishes from her grandmother and linens she had in her collection.  She also allowed us to use a gorgeous model home at The Farm from Keller Homes.

Using fruit and vegetables in your floral design is a great way to create interest and color!

I used apple branches with apples attached, blooming oregano, boxwood, geranium, and lavender from my yard. I also picked up zinnias, allium, artichokes, roses, scabiosa (pin cushion), chocolate queen anne's lace, and japonica from the wholesaler. All of these flowers can be grown in Colorado though. I also placed figs, blackberries, rutabaga and a tropical fruit throughout the tablescape for color contrast and texture. Terrariums were added as well.
