Tropical leaves, bright oranges, pinks and yellows are huge trends for 2019. It doesn’t matter if you’re just doing green tropical palms and monstera leaves alone, with traditional white colors, or adding true tropical flowers like birds of paradise, princess protea, and ginger.
We had the pleasure of designing a Tropical Waves sweetheart table as part of our design trio at The Luxe Bridal Event March 28th. Let’s go through the details of the place settings:
When designing your sweetheart table, consider using store bought custom dishes from your barware and plates, to flatware. It shouldn’t clash with the guest tables, but it also doesn’t have to match. Rent items that coordinate for guests while you use items at your table you can reuse for romantic dinners at home for yeas to come. Bring them out every anniversary, or any night to surprise each other, you’ll be right back in that moment anytime:
We used copper water glasses, which can be used as mule glasses at home, blue champagne toasting glasses, local beer from Widmer, and the tequila shot glasses serve as a place-card, too – Himalayan sea salt shot glasses with white paint pens are all you need for this DIY project.
The dishes: IKEA including the placemats. The Monstera leaves can be used without the mat for guest table placemats. Flatware is bamboo, some of our local rental companies have similar versions for rent. The chopsticks by IKEA.
The menus printed and designed by elli.com and they incorporate beachy wavy vibes combined with the watercolor trend that is so popular this year! The napkins and velvet bone tablecloth from bbj linen.
The tropical floral design starts in a copper Mayan bowl on the table and flows down to a clear glass tall Pilsner vase filled with rocks. We chose orange roses, in season local bright pink anenome, yellow lilies, the local orange butterflyranunculus were fire! The traditional pink protea and bird of paradise were the only traditional tropicals.
