UBB 2013 Winter Editorial {Table Details}

We always love working with the amazing team at Mood Events! Their knowledge and use of detail is perfection and their style is impeccable! Every little detail is thought about all the way down to the place card napkins. Their unique style and ideas always blow us away! Here is a bit more of the incredible table design details from Mood Events!

“Chalkboards continue to be a hot commodity for weddings these days, and with the concept and style of this photo shoot, we just couldn’t get around doing one. However, we decided to go a slightly different route than your traditional white chalk, in the hopes that this alternative may be more accessible, affordable and still a professional alternative, than handwriting and illustrating everything yourself.

For this ‘welcome’ chalkboard, we utilized the custom monogram designed by October Ink from the invitation suite and had it laser-cut from gold vinyl adhesive at our local mall. After preparing the chalkboard surface, we simply adhered the vinyl cut-out to the chalkboard and were done. Not only was it simple and easy, vinyl cut-outs are relatively inexpensive and come in an array of colors (you could just do white vinyl if you prefer the traditional white chalk look). Talk to your invitation stationer about utilizing your monogram (or elements from your invitation to keep a consistent and cohesive look throughout your wedding décor) for your chalkboard or design something more detailed and specific like a menu board or timeline of events.


“For the tablescape design, we utilized two eight-foot Napa tables from RSVP Party Rentals and incorporated the gorgeous modern chairs already at BTG Wine Bar. We centered the table directly in the center of the room, and perfectly beneath three stunning wine glass chandeliers in the restaurant space. The warm wood tones of the table and chairs provided a clean and modern base for the flowers and accessory décor that would go on top of it.

Standard white bistro plates, copper flatware and a gold-glazed bread board were placed at each setting, paired with a mason jar water glass and vintage amber wine goblets. The place setting look was completed with alternating napkins in blue denim and diamond-patterned cranberry and taupe linen. Each napkin was accented with a brass name plate indicating guests’ names.

“For the sixteen-foot centerpiece down the center of the table, we started with a denim runner which showcased a raw, yet pretty fringe at each end. The blue-denim runner not only stood out naturally against the dark wood tones, but also provided an unexpected and welcomed ground color for the gold, amber, silver, reds, greens and purples, that were be laid on top of it. We sourced vintage wood and brass Edison bulb lamps in various styles and incorporated them into the centerpiece as an alternative to pillar candles which would have been a more typical and usual choice. As a result of these vintage lamps and tea light candles in amber glass votives, the entire tablescape was abounding in a warm, golden glow.

As a small nod to the steampunk style, we found a vintage ink well at a local vintage shop and used that as a salt and pepper vessel.”
