Elegant Holiday Tabletop


I hope everyone is getting excited for the holidays!  I know I am, and I am practically drooling over this gorgeous holiday tabletop designed by Donna O’Brien of Beautiful Blooms in Philadelphia.  The aqua and chartreuse color palette is a new twist on a traditional holiday theme, and mirrors, glass bowls, and mercury glass add the perfect amount of sparkle to the decor.  The images are by one of my favorite ladies, Marie Labbancz.



Each table setting has a lovely mink charger with a green mercury glass footed bowl.  The gold flatware and gold-rimmed champagne flutes perfectly accent the metallic tones in the mercury glass hurricanes.  Vintage water glasses and a mirrored table pick up all of the glittery silhouettes of the glass and candles, and a lush cedar garland completes the look.  Using a mirror is a wonderful way to accent any table without adding decor – the reflective surface makes everything on the table appear larger than life!




The brand new Ashford Estate in Allentown, NJ is opening its doors to weddings in 2011 and was the perfect setting.  Even in the damp weather, the estate has a classic, elegant feel. 




In keeping with the holiday theme, Donna created a bouquet of greenery – cedar, seeded eucalyptus, and a cuff of magnolia leaves – with an elegant aqua silk dupioni ribbon wrap and glamorous crystal brooch.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I loooove this elegant holiday tabletop setting. If I could I would do this for every single table at my wedding but unfortunately I can’t. However I would love to recreate this table setting for my sweetheart table at my wedding. Please could you assist me in how to go about this. I want this stand out, for the table to be dominant but at the same time simply elegant, cheek, sleek and say romance. The colors for my wedding is emerald green and gold. overall I I want my wedding to have feel of regal, stately, royal plus be sophisticated, elegant, classy, and sassy. Because I am having a small wedding of about 80 persons intimacy is key. I am having food stations (interactive) and not plated service. this is so as I want the fun element be in my wedding. I look forward to your help and thank you in advance for your kind assistance.
