“Nude tones and blush pink work perfectly together and in recent years it’s a colour scheme that’s become incredibly popular at weddings. When I’m styling tables at a wedding, I like to layer different elements such as beautiful table linen, gold-rimmed crockery and soft silk napkins to create real interest. Despite the colours being very similar, mixing textures will leave your reception looking chic and luxurious. There are a few rules to follow if you want this look to feel truly timeless and sophisticated. Here are my top tips for creating a beautiful nude tablescape at your wedding…
Keep It Simple
This scheme works best if you keep it really simple,so try not to add too much to the table. A few carefully chosen items will have more impact than lots of little decorative details.
Stick to a limited colour palette. If you use too many variants of nude and blush, the look will lose its edge and become less sophisticated. I’d suggest using one colour as a base before adding lighter and darker elements in the same tone.
A Hint of Metallic
A little glimmer of gold really compliments nude tones, taking your overall look to another level. Gilded crockery, glassware and cutlery work perfectly along with place cards like these from e.y.i.love.
The Perfect Base
A look this dreamy deserves more than plain white table linen. It’s obvious I love sequins and this champagne tablecloth is the perfect base for a nude tablescape, adding lots of texture and a hint of shimmer.
A Little Texture
Adding texture to tablescapes is an instant win. Pair your dazzling tablecloth with gold cutlery, foiled paper goods and soft, blousy flowers to add visual interest and create effortless drama.
The wrong centrepieces could ruin your look. Stick to white, nude and blush flowers with lots of lovely green foliage in metallic or glass containers like these from Foxy Buds.”
