Inspired: A Romantic French Market Design

Happy Thursday! We’re this close to the weekend and, once again, we have lofty plans and a jam-packed weekend, which you know we thrive on! What do you have plotted out for the weekend? We’re getting a jump on the weekend and sharing a delicious design we brought to life a few months ago in Seattle. The lovely ladies of Wedding Chicks recently featured this and we’re excited to share it with you now!

Inspired by 1920s Parisian romance-meets-a rural French market brimming with gorgeous blooms, decadent cheeses and wines and the breath of another era, this table top radiates a relaxed glamour. We’re suckers for painting the picture of an unforgettable evening that guests, male or female, old and young, can enjoy.

Something that will excite them with unexpected turns and surprises at around every corner, a setting that will induce wows and smiles by transporting guests to another time and into a true experience. 

 The goal for this table top shoot was to create an effortless, yet incredibly dramatic setting nodding to vintage Paris, a la Midnight in Paris. French script was prominent on our stationery from the menus to the invitations signaling a Parisian-inspired evening. Fresh plums adorned each guest’s place setting, welcoming them with a pop of color. The juxtaposition of gold specked chargers and ornate candelabras against white hemstitch napkins and our hand-dyed ombré napkin bands created an eye-catching setting. Foie gras, honeycomb, fresh French 75 cocktails, and endless chocolates and cheeses added to the décor.

 When planning your wedding style consider what you and your fiancé truly love. If you’re looking to our inspiration shoot pull bits and pieces that you can replicate over and over again for your guests with original touches, like ombré napkin bands and personalized menus. Going the extra mile and greeting your guests with cocktails and fruit atop their place setting will set the tone for a thoughtful evening. Place small vintage plates with cheeses and fruit slices atop each table as well for guests to nosh on pre-dinner. This will cue the conversation and ambiance before dinner is served. It’s all about filling a table with beautiful elements that are creative and beautiful and will set your wedding apart

      Thank you so much, Brit! We adored that crate so much! We’ve used wine crates for years for storage and shelving and wedding decor!
