Tabletop Design in Seattle Metropolitan Bride & Groom Magazine

I am delighted to write that the Winter issue of Seattle Metropolitan Bride & Groom Magazine includes a tabletop design that I created along with the wonderful help of Julie Borrud with Bella Rugosa and Whitney Speir with Brown Sugar Design.


The inspiration was vintage meets modern with a sweet farmers market design. Yellow is one of my favorite colors and I love the combination with black and white for a crisp and bright palette. A bold canary yellow lamour table linen with accented butterfly napkins Julie sewed and sleek yet classic black chivari chairs set the tone. Vintage milk glass and bud vases were scattered on the table nestled in between a contemporary candleabra. Organic vibrant crimson and fuscia dahlias and green hydrangea from the farmers market and Julie's home garden filled the jars.

Whitney designed the perfect accenting menu cards to compliment the black and white china and place card favor tags that I tied around clusters of organic honey sticks from Pike Place Market. The menu featured a late summer feast of heirloom tomato gazpacho, grilled king salmon and for dessert wild blackberry cobbler with honey ice cream.
