Inspiration Challenge: Winter Wedding Tabletops

on by in Weddings & Such

We have the best little holiday treat for you today! Some time ago, Rebecca and I were chatting about winter/holiday wedding inspiration: What could we do to inspire couples planning an affair during the holiday season? And how best to get some of our favorite local bloggers in the inspiration boat along with us?

The answer: a Winter Wedding Tabletop Challenge! Today we'll be showing you some seriously gorgeous inspiration boards by our group of five bloggers: Sarah from Chevrons & Stripes, Marianne from The Things We Didn't Buy, Alex from i like it. i love it., and of course Rebecca and myself. And all next week, we'll bring the inspiration to life as each blogger shares photos and insights into her winter wedding-inspired table... you'll be getting fresh and inspiring details that can really be used for all kinds of events (New Year's Eve dinner party, anyone?) or even just to spice up your holiday decorating!

Sarah / Chevrons & Stripes:

"I tend to decorate my own home with neutral colors and after our recent move to Miami I began to drift a bit more towards whites, beiges, nudes in an effort to keep the feel of the place light, airy, and beachy. So it was only natural that I gravitate towards the same aesthetic for my first tabletop challenge! In addition to the more obvious choices for my wintry whites/metallics theme, I was inspired by the bejeweled antler and doily covered driftwood. I love the idea of something natural kicked up a notch and made a bit more glam - it's unexpected! Above all, I love mixing textures so that been the focal point of designing my tabletop thus far. Enjoy! "

Marianne / The Things We Didn't Buy:

"My table setting idea is a mix of classic winter plaids, bright neons, and a bit of rustic charm. I have a great love for vintage - mix and match china, brass candlesticks, lace, and more, but with this challenge I wanted to go outside of my comfort zone and create something that only a super adventurous couple would like. Hopefully I will inspire some couples to think outside the box and really embrace the winter wedding!"

Rebecca / Urban Flip Flops:

"To anyone who knows me, it is of no surprise that I chose to theme my Winter Wedding Table around the rosy color pink. I imagined a couple having a formal winter wedding after seeing this amazing pink confection-like wedding dress by Watters. I envisioned the groom dressed in formal black tie toasting with his bride with overflowing glasses of Rose bubbly in these amazing glasses from BHLDN. The idea of mixing shades of pink with with splashes of gold and silver has me dreaming of a glamorous wedding, but an elegant affair {not bubblegum pink, light rosy shades}. I could picture adding in a little holiday touch with the adorable little pink trees around a dessert table filled with holiday sweets. I can see the photos now of the new Mrs. & Mr. sitting at their table with a pink hued candlelight reflecting on their faces, ooo so pretty. Check out my Pinterest Board for the rest of the inspiration."

Alex / i like it. i love it.

"My inspiration is Colorful Modern. For the winter wedding tabletop challenge I wanted to do something that included some of my favorite design trends - modern lines combined with unexpected pops of color. In addition to all of the color, I plan to infuse elements of my favorite metallic, silver, which I believe keeps the design looking wintery and seasonal."

Laura / Make Merry!

"I was inspired by a mix of metallics - gold, silver, copper and bronze - with natural materials and textures. I'm envisioning a tablescape that's simple and organic (without being too rustic), all glammed up with a modern palette of metals that will be bright and shimmery in the candlelight. I also wanted to give it a feeling of warmth and comfort with handmade items and DIY projects so that the guests at this winter wedding will feel right at home!"
