We have worked with SJ from Justalittlebuild on numerous occasions over the past 2 years. She loves to decorate a table as much as we do. So when SJ was planning to surprise her Mum for her 60th Birthday and asked for our help how could we refuse! Colour Palette A colour palette predominantly of pinks and golds was chosen, adorned with simple flowers and candlelight to set the mood. With 3 6ft trestle tables to cover we came up with a repeat pattern of products of various heights, textures and colours to add that touch of class. Texture The focal point for each table was the globe vase filled with pink & white blooms. For texture and colour, our best-selling matt ceramic bud vases were then dotted throughout. Height & Candlelight Candle light creates an intimate, pretty ambience. Achieved with a combination of heights with the simple glass candle sticks and deco glass votives. Using glass pieces creates a light and airy feel. Finally, the addition of the amber frosted candle holders, creates a beautiful warm glow. When you layer the table with texture, height and keep your colour palette simple, you can't go wrong! Beautifully styled table Full view of the tables for the guests Happy Birthday SJ's Mum! Chosen Products Selection of vases used for the flower displays : Small White ribbed bud vase at £12 Small Pink ribbed bud vase at £8 Globe Vase at £24 Selection of candle holders used: Amber Frosted Candle Holder Small at £13 Simple Glass candle stick small and Medium at £10 & £12 Deco Glass votive at £5 The white lanterns were dotted around the barn with LED candlelight and two of the stunning glass hurricanes were positioned on the cake table. To finish off the tables and the room setting SJ chose the rose pink linen napkins and alternated with the white linen napkins to tie in the colour scheme.
