WHY NOT BRING THE CARIBBEAN TO YOU? CREATE THIS BRIGHT & TROPICAL TABLESCAPE!
I have been so obsessed with all things tropical this summer! I can’t get enough of all the luscious greenery, exotic prints and pineapples that have been popping up all over the place, and there’s no wonder I love it, even the thought is taking me back to our magical summer holiday! So who, apart from me, is is embracing the tropics?
“If you are having a destination wedding and not all of your guest are able to attend, you can bring the Caribbean to them” Melanie explains.
“You could even recreate your own version of this tropical table for a special dinner or a nice get together? She added. Of course when you think about the tropics, fun vibrant colors come to mind. “To achieve the look don’t be afraid to use bright colors and bold patterns, these should be the main focus. You can also implement natural elements along the design like wood, wicker or bamboo in the chargers and vases or include rustic pieces of driftwood. This will give a nice contrast to the colorful flowers.”
“If you are going to use a table linen, make sure it complements the elements on the table and the colors. Since this design is vibrant you can also color block. It is important to have little details that can turn into conversation pieces. Unexpected decoration elements like miniature pineapples and dry leaves are what give this table its edge. Mismatch your chairs and don’t take it too seriously; different selection of seating provides structure and creativity. To top your plates you can use tropical fruits, small flowers, half of a small coconut or a piece of bamboo. You can even use souvenirs you brought along from your trip and have them as a gift for your guests. Have fun with it, use this as an inspiration, and arrange your table in surprising ways.”
