Waterford Wednesday: Special Sweetheart Tables

Happy Waterford Wednesday, friends!

Today we’ve got a fun little post all about sweetheart tables and some cute and creative ways you can make these special tables shine a little more! Sweetheart tables are extra special because it is all about the newly weds! Here are three sweetheart table ideas that we love:

Love Seat

A great way to add a little extra touch to your sweetheart table is to seat you and your loved one on a comfy sofa or love seat together! Not only does this incorporate a vintage feel, but it also has the potential to add in a nice bold pop of color depending on the chair you go with! We loved how Antonia Christianson Events added this red chair into their design at A Crystal Clear Vision, it definitely made the whole design more romantic we think!

Florals

Floral arrangements are always such a statement piece when it comes to sweetheart tables, and we absolutely adore the floral runner trend that’s been happening lately! Using a floral runner creates a unique and visually appealing element to your sweetheart table that will definitely set it apart from your guest tables!

Signage

Table signage is a cute and easy way to show off your sweetheart table seats! Something as simple as “Bride” and “Groom” signs are great starter ideas for you to get creative, but there are endless options when it comes to ideas! We love “The Sail” and “The Anchor” signs that were used at an Outer Banks wedding a couple of years ago! It really spoke to the bride and grooms style and worked well into the overall theme of the event!

Waterford Wednesday – Simple Yet Significant

It’s another Waterford Wednesday!

With wedding season in full swing we have had lots of setups each weekend and we couldn’t help but notice how events really are all about the details! Taking the time to really pay attention to the little things really helps to create an extra memorable experience and ensure a cohesive look. One of our favorite, and easiest ways, is with napkins! Napkins are a really nice way to finish off any place setting by keeping things classy with a hint of fun! Whether adding a pop of color or a little texture with a spunky design, napkins are another great example of how the small things are still significant. We’ve gathered a couple of pictures for your daily napkin inspiration!

We love how even these Burgundy Polyester add contrast to this all white table design! This place setting gives an easy way to add elegance and color to make any place setting shine!

 

Photography: Kirstyn Marie Photography

This super sweet table setting goes to show how the small, simple details can make your day extra special for you and your guests! These Dusty Rose Majestic Napkins will be apart of the memories you will cherish forever. Napkins don’t always have to contrast, even matching and blending with the colors of the table they help to tie all of the designs together!

These Plaid Polyester Napkins add that pop of fun and contrast to these elegant place setting. We love These napkins are the perfect accent to any solid color scheme for any table, to really add that “wow” factor!

This pop of pink is sure to sprinkle a little fun onto a table. The contrast from black to pink really shows the details these Fuchsia and White Satin Napkin brings to a table!

Waterford Wednesday ~ Runners Are A Must

It’s Waterford Wednesday!

Today’s post is all about how little things can make a big impression! Table runners are one of our favorite ways to add a little extra spunk to any table and really are a great way to provide character and color to make any table design extra eye catching.  They also work as great contrasts or backgrounds for any floral arrangements or centerpieces! Here are a few of our favorite, funky table runners:

 

Natural

Photography: Caitlin Gerres Photography

 

Our natural runners are a great way to spruce up any table! They are the perfect combination of classic, romantic, and chic so you can dress them up or keep it casual. These runners can bring a boho chic style with basic table linens or can really add a “pop” with any colored or textured table. Either way, the natural runner is a great accent to any design!

 

Velvet

Photography: Amanda Manupella

 

Another classy favorite of ours are our velvet runners! They come in an array of colors to choose from, the rose quartz runner here really shows the difference a table runner can make. Table runners don’t always have to be used to accent other pieces of the table, but can be used to celebrate the table itself! Whether keeping things simple or adding a fun color to the tables design, our elegant velvet table runners are great for any event!

 

Macramé  

Photography: Caitlin Gerres Photography

 

The macramé runners are one of our favorite funky pieces! With a rise in rustic, beach theme, or bohemian inspired weddings these runners are the perfect edition. When paired with a basic table or a specialty linen it can really accentuate the table design. No matter what you’re looking for, our macramé runners are a great way to add texture to any table!

 

Sequins

Photography: Tara Liebeck Photography

 

We can’t forget about our Sequin runners! We love to talk about how much we love the sequins, but they really speak for themselves. Their modern elegance is guaranteed to make any table sparkle! We love that they can transform basic table linens into captivating table settings! If you are looking for that extra glam for your table, our sequin runners were made just for you!

Waterford Wednesday: Navy & White Stripe Linen

With summer just around the corner, nautical-themed weddings come into full swing, highlighting beautiful blues and contrasting whites for an epic decor.  For this week’s Linen Spotlight, we chose to focus in on one of our favorite go-to’s for all summer get-togethers, the Navy and White Stripe Polyester Linen.  This timeless patterned linen compliments many outdoor venue options, while all the while, proving to be a game-changer for themed weddings.  In addition to nautical, these stripes can effectively be utilized in a “variety of themes and motifs:  Americana, classic, preppy, modern, and so many more” (“20 Ways to Include Striped Wedding Details on Your Big Day“).

One of our fav pics of this linen actually is a throwback to a previous A Crystal Clear, where A Lively Affair collaborated with us to make this gorgeous display:

All Photography:  Kirstyn Marie

Wow, what a gorgeous tablescape created by A Lively Affair!  Their choice to incorporate pops of yellow, red, and other shades of blue truly makes you feel like you are right at the beach!  The final touches of twine further confirm this nautical-look to be one of our favs from A Crystal Clear 2018.

If you lean towards a more softer side when choosing your decor options for your event/wedding, then utilize this linen on only an accent table, like the sweetheart table, cake table, or presents table.  Patterned linens tend to scare people away from going bold at their wedding.  However, when having a large guest list, the perfect way to help guests know where to place their presents or turn their eyes towards is simply to have a linen that stands out from the rest.

Let us know how you would decorate your event with the Navy and White Stripe Polyester Linen!

Waterford Wednesday: Michael & Morgan’s Wedding

Spring has sprung and you know what that means…wedding season is upon us!  The beautiful weather, the gorgeous blooming of flowers, and the love of being outdoors really excites us Waterford gals for all of the weddings we are going to help execute and decorate in Hampton Roads this season!  Michael and Morgan’s special day on March 2, 2019 at the Woman’s Club of Portsmouth proves to still reign as one-of-a-kind in our books, so much so that Mickey Mouse made a special guest appearance on their wedding day!  Talk about unforgettable!

From the small details and final touches that added personalization to the love that was shared by each attendee of their wedding, this was one of the highlights for our season so far.  Take a look at some of our absolute favs from Michael and Morgan’s magical wedding:

All Photography : Chelsea Anderson

We might be a little biased, but isn’t the Woman’s Club of Portsmouth just the most beautiful place to say “I do”?!  What a breathtaking wedding Michael and Morgan had back in March!  By keeping the color palette classic with pink, white, and gold along with touches of greenery, their wedding exuded elegance and sophistication.  The Gold-Beaded Glass Chargers with the Banded Baby Pink Satin Napkins and Gold Chiavari Chairs truly complimented the Woman’s Club of Portsmouth‘s interior features.

Let us know what you think about this gorgeous wedding!
