We may have a case of “who wore it better” on our hands… and I’m referring to the backdrop vs. centerpieces of gorgeous flowers of course! Michelle Garibay Events teamed up with Growing Grace Floral Design for a playful “Kate Spade bride” style tablescape that works for the wedding or the bridal shower. Their Chic Parisian “Le Jardin” Inspired Tablescape is glowing… and not just from the candles! ;) From the bold black & white linen to the ultra creative (and mood setting) floral backdrop, catch all the glamorous details and a fun Q&A session with Michelle below.
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
- Modern black and white stripe table linen + fuschia satin napkins
- Vibrant florals studded in a fresh garden wall backdrop
- White plates, pink circular menus + lush peony and rose floral arrangements
- Matte gold flatware, candelabras, and votive candles
Q&A WITH MICHELLE conducted by Rhonda Couchigian of Rayce PR…
What was your inspiration?
I was drawn to the black and white stripes. I wanted to do something old and a little different today to kickstart spring. And then a Paris garden theme so I wanted something high-contrast, bold and exciting with a very garden-fresh feel. (Linen: Canopy Stripe Onyx Napkins: Fuschia Satin Lamour)
The arrangements are gorgeous. Did you originally have this idea of repetition?
Yes. We wanted to keep continuity because we really wanted the floral wall to be the focal point.
Tell us a little bit about that – it’s gorgeous.
Michelle used peonies and roses in all of the different colors. She designed that by hand this morning.
Tell us a little bit about the seating.
This is called the Versailles bench, so I wanted to bring in those Paris lines and those lush Marie Antoinette designs. It has a lot of layers and really steps up. The napkins added a punch of color to offset the black and white. I used clean plates and clean silverware because I really wanted the flowers to be the star of the show. Just very symmetrical lines to play off the stripes and have the flowers be the garden part of the design. We have a lot of muted tones so it’s a little different.
Who is your target bride for this design?
This is for the Kate Spade bride.
