This elegant white wedding, at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park, is a lesson in the art of the tablescape. Steal a few ideas and enchant your holiday guests.
White flowers will never go out of style for weddings, and they look beautiful for any season. When sticking to a monochromatic color palette, the key is to get creative with texture and shapes. Here, we created arrangements of various sizes, featuring hydrangea, stock blossoms, dahlias, Tibet roses, garden roses, ranunculus and football mums. Using so many types of flowers meant blossoms that range from small and delicate, to large and striking. We used a single flower type in each silver mercury-glass bud vase, then played up the sparkle and shine, by arranging the vases along a mirrored runner, with a series of chic, crystal candelabras and small, clear and mercury glass votives. When lit, the overall effect welcomed guests with an ethereal glow. We love the look of all-white linens with that subtle hint of pale blue from the stem glasses Read More
After meeting a bride-to-be and talking with her about initial thoughts and inspirations, we put together mood boards and color palettes. Today, we’re sharing a mood board for an outdoor wedding, held in the gardens of a castle venue.

Peach Juliet garden roses deepen to coral at their centers. Butter-yellow parrot tulips pick up the warm tones present in cream hydrangea and stock, and ivory garden roses. Pale blush comes into play with ranunculus, and with the outer petals of pink tree peonies, while that flower’s deeper-pink, inner petals surround a yellow center. Italian ruskus, jasmine vines, seeded eucalyptus and geranium leaf added a range of medium to dark greens, and lush textures, evocative of a summer garden in fullest bloom. Read More
