Sweetheart tables are all the rage and there’s no better time to feature them than around the iconic date night of the year. For this styled shoot, I timed it right before a workshop with Florals by Anita so that our attendees could be smitten-ed by their seating experience.
Usually you think of reds, pinks, and whites when it comes to Vday, but this time around I wanted to create a themed table with a timeless statement and steer clear of the commercialized feel that is so frequently sighted. Utilizing deep navy blues and aubergine in the colour scheme gave off a cool tone while still remaining elegant. The pop of gold provided the ultimate glam factor and pulled the details as one.
The Victorian-like scripted runner was seriously the kicker to this idea. I never thought that pairing a burlap-like, rougher-around-the-edges style runner would complement the otherwise layered lightweight and soft chiffon one so well. This is an experimentation of contrasts at its best and I love how the runner played off the calligraphy pieces. Speaking of which, there’s something so romantic about cursive penmanship and Jenny from Purposeful Script went above and beyond to not only write, but print these programs on gold foil.
Integrating the trend of geometric lines, we utilized arabesque shaped glossy tiles to read “You Are Mine” and “I’m Yours” to provide the lovey dovey atmosphere we all love. I also provided the concept to these stunning teardrop bathbombs with the help of Bubble Bath and Soap Co. and they definitely became the feature of the setting.
Everything tied together effortlessly and it was so much fun to not only envision this shoot, but be able to actually create some of the items for it.
Here’s a fun fact: due to timing, I wasn’t able to properly source gold cutlery so I spray painted my own! All for the shoot right?!
