    Blush and Greenery Wedding Tablescape

    IMG_0586Right now, there are probably lots of brides, mother of the brides, and wedding planners who are all excitedly scrolling online for wedding inspo.  I just adore weddings as they are a celebration of love, happiness, beauty and the beginning of a couple’s adventure in life together!  I’m a self-proclaimed romantic and I’m absolutely inspired by weddings.

    Wedding trends for 2019 include lots of greenery and blush tones.  There are several reasons why bringing the outdoors inside is popular.  First of all, a couple won’t have to worry about a backup plan if it rains on their wedding day.  Having lots of lush greenery around is reminiscent of a garden and sets the tone for a romantic evening.  It also is a great way to cut down cost but still have beautiful décor.  These days, weddings can cost an average of $30,000!

    In addition to adding more greenery to a wedding, varying blush tones are popular and a classic wedding color.  This color is pretty and adds a sweet softness to the overall wedding vibe which may be why it’s timeless.  I love this color and used varying shades of it in my own wedding.  

    With these two trends in mind, I used disposable partyware from Fineline Settings to create a romantic blush and greenery wedding tablescape.  Their disposable plates, cutlery, and stemware make it convenient to set up and clean up after the party is over.  The products are elegant and beautiful enough that I used them at my own wedding with close to 500 guests! 

    For the tablescape, I used a neutral toned tablecloth to naturally go along with the greenery.  I laid a light blush chiffon runner on top, making sure it gathers in random areas along the table.  Then I placed some seeded eucalyptus branches on top of each other along the center of the table to create a faux garland.  Seeded eucalyptus is a very popular greenery in 2019 because of its beauty and elegance.  To finish off the centerpiece, I added a few white candles in glass votives.

    IMG_0580I started each place setting with a disposable blush charger.  Then I layered on the 10” and 7” Round Foil Trim Plates Combo in bone/gold.  I gathered a fancy white napkin over a gold fork, knive and spoon from the Heavyweight Cutlery Combo and tied it with raffia.  I like that the cutlery matches the gold around the trim of the plate and the raffia continues the natural theme.  For the drinkware, I chose the 8 oz 1 Piece Wine Goblet and the 6 oz 2 Piece Wine Goblet in clear since they go nicely together.  That’s all there is to setting a simple and pretty wedding tablescape!

    Getting married is one of the most important moments in a person’s life and it should be treate with special attention.  Everything from the dress and suit to the wedding tabletops should be extraordinary!  This blush and greenery wedding tablescape sets an elegant and romantic tone for an unforgettable reception filled with joy, laughter, and love in celebrating a significant milestone in two people’s lives.   

    Americana Picnic with Fineline Settings!

    With warmer weather ahead of us, there are promises of sunny days for outdoor activities like this Americana picnic!  It’s always fun to spend time enjoying nature with family and friends and to bring along a packed picnic.  I chose a historic old mill for the perfect backdrop to enjoy one of America’s favorite outdoor pastimes.  To make this even more fun, I used several partyware products from Fineline Settings to add nostalgia and ease into the picnic.

    There is nothing more symbolic of America than the bold red, white, and blue colors of the American flag.  These colors carry so much history, pride and unity.  I wanted to use these colors in varying shades for a familiar but modern look.  I chose a light blue picnic blanket for a bright and breezy vibe.  To keep with tradition, I added a wooden crate, a lantern and a wicker picnic basket.  A wicker picnic basket is another classic item that every exciting and nostalgic picnic needs.  I tossed in a few throw pillows to make it more comfy and inviting.  To top it off I added some flowers in shades of red, white, and blue to really make this beautiful and special.

    It’s great to be outdoor, but the most exciting part of a picnic is the food of course!  That’s why I feel it’s important to have wonderful partyware to serve the food.  I used a 35 oz carafe to bottle up a delicious raspberry lemonade.  Lemonade is another picnic staple and I like the coral color from the raspberries.  I love that the carafe has a lid to keep the drink from spilling during travel.  I also used the 16 oz mason jars for serving drinks.  They come with a screw on top lid with a hole for the straw which will help minimize spills and keep bugs out.  To make it more practical and fun, I took the lids off so I could place a classic red and white picnic napkin inside the jars.  Then I put a knife, fork and spoon in each to make it easier to hand out during the picnic.  I used the white disposable cutlery from the Conserveware line since they are biodegradable.  If we happen to accidentally lose a few in the wild, we won’t have to worry about harming the environment.

    I also chose various sizes of plates from the Conserveware line for serving the food.  They are available in several shapes and sizes, but I used the 10x5” rectangular plates, 10” square plates, 8” square plates, and 6” square plates.  The rectangular plates are great for displaying food.  I used one to serve classic ham and cheese sandwiches.  This will make it easier for everyone to grab a sandwich for themselves.  The 6” square plates were perfect for serving various fruits like strawberries and blueberries.  I like how these berries are red and blue to keep with our theme.  The 10” and 8” square plates are great for each person to take a little bit of everything for a delicious meal.  Since these are disposable and biodegradable, cleanup is easy since they can be tossed in the trash and are environmentally friendly.

                    Memorial Day and Independence Day are coming up and are great reasons to gather with your loved ones and have a picnic.  These holidays remind us to appreciate those who have served and is currently serving our country as well as be grateful for our freedom.  Make these significant celebrations more memorable by having a red, white, and blue Americana picnic in the outdoor space of your choice.  You can have even more fun by serving classic American picnic foods with fun drinkware and smart biodegradable plates and cutlery from Fineline Settings!

    Something Blue Wedding Tablescape

    Weddings are one of my favorite celebrations since there is so much beauty involved on so many levels.  I’ve been inspired to create a Something Blue Wedding Tablescape using elegant and affordable partyware from Fineline Settings.  According to some wedding experts, mixed shades of blue is a popular color palette for weddings in 2019.  With this in mind, I wanted to style an inviting table filled with gorgeous and romantic elements that would be perfect for this occasion. 12

    To start off, I used pedestal arrangements for the centerpieces since they are also another popular trend for weddings this year.  I chose glass pedestals to go along with the glass candle holders.  For the flowers, I used blue hydrangeas to stick with the color palette.  I also used different size roses in white and light pink to add some complimentary contrast.  Roses are classic weddings flowers and always make a situation more romantic.  Grass is another popular element in wedding décor in 2019 so I added a few grass sprigs for drama and texture.  I filled in the rest of my arrangement with different greenery and smaller floral pieces to bring it all together. 

    Then I added some candles in short votives and tall tapered candles in between the floral arrangements to make it even dreamier.  A candlelit dinner or lunch always makes for an intimate dining experience, right?BLUE WED

    For the place setting, I started with a dusty blue charger and then layered on the Caterer Choice 10” and 7” bone plates with gold trim.  I like how it comes in a combo pack which makes it easy to use.  Then I simply placed a knotted blue napkin over the top to keep with our blue color theme.  I added the Golden Secrets gold cutlery that also comes in a combo pack of forks, spoons, and knives to either side of the plates.  For drinks, I used the Flairware 8 oz 1 piece wine goblet and Flairware 5 oz 2 piece champagne flutes which is perfect for water and a toasting beverage. BLUE WED2

    That completes the Something Blue Wedding Tablescape with mixed shades of blue and romantic elements that will be sure to invite love into a room.  The partyware from Fineline Settings really helps set the table for a gorgeous and memorable celebration.  You will look back and have no regrets about the beauty of your tablescapes! 

    Spring Tablescape

    Spring is finally here and with Easter and Mother’s Day coming up in the next few months, I’ve partnered up with Fineline Settings to create an easy tablescape that will work for both occasions!  Their disposable partyware and flatware are not only great quality, but also affordable.  What’s also exciting is that you can request samples so you can make sure their products are right for your gathering.  Now that is piece of mind when you are planning the perfect party!

    My tablescape is inspired by the beauty, colors, and warmth of spring.  All shades of pink, coral, and peach are a trendy combination this year.  This palette invites feelings of joy, sunny days, and fun into any work of art whether its related to food, crafts, or party planning. 

    Spring Table Settings

    I started with a pastel yellow tablecloth to create a soft spring mood.  Then, I added a garden variety of flowers that come in different shades of pink, coral, and peach for the centerpiece.  I removed the larger flower heads from the stems and laid them side by side to create a faux garland in the center of the table.  Then I layered in smaller flowers like roses to create more texture. 

    From the Fineline Settings website, I chose the Round Foil Trim Plates Combo in bone/gold. I really like that it comes with a 10” dinner plate and a matching 7” appetizer plate that can be layered on top of each other.  I also chose the clear 10 oz Flairware bowls to place on top of the appetizer plates which will be great for a soup or salad.  For utensils, I used the Heavyweight Cutlery Combo in gold that comes in a convenient bag of forks, knives and spoons.  I love how they look like real utensils but they are disposable.  They also match the gold trim around the plates and gold makes everything look a little fancier!  For the drinkware, I chose the 8 oz 1 Piece Wine Goblet and the 6 oz 2 Piece Wine Goblet in clear since they match beautifully together and also tie in with the 10 oz bowl.  For the finishing touch, I folded a cloth-like napkin into a rose and placed it in the clear bowl to continue the floral design from the centerpiece to the plates.
