Styling at Bridwell Park

Posted 21/5/2017

Bridwell Park in Devon was the beautiful setting for a wedding festival in April, where I styled tipis for the World Inspired Tents Open Weekend. Our theme was Boho & we used the colours of the World Inspired Tents brand to celebrate their 10th birthday. 

 

Instead of my usual bunting, this time I made ribbon decorations, which are available for hire.

For one of the long tables, I used a pastel palette of peaches, corals, sea greens, duck egg blues & grey. The runner was hand-dyed muslin topped with a variety of painted lanterns, night-lights & flowers in vintage bottles.

Place settings included hand-dyed muslin napkins & hand-dyed silk ribbons with sprigs of dried seed heads & feathers. Place names were written on water-colour tinted, hand-made rag paper.

For one of the short tables, I used a grey & yellow palette with silver succulents, again using hand dyed silk ribbons, runner & napkins. 

 

 

On my third table I created a bold, vibrant design using feathers, spiky leaves & pampas grass on candlesticks with an abundance of brass & copper. I added piles of fruit & nuts between red roses, succulents & gold votives. Vintage napkins, hand-dyed silk ribbons, Majolica plates & shiny red pomegranates completed the layered style.

A Green Theme

Posted 17/10/2016

It's always a delight to be part of the award winning World Inspired Tents Open Weekend & fly my bunting in their fabulous tipis. 

The stunning floral displays above were provided by Brompton Buds

 

It's also a chance for me to indulge in some styling, which I love to do. The theme this time was green with whites & creams so I used a lot of herbs, creating a lovely aroma on the tables. Potted plants are a stylish & economic way of decorating your tables because you can re-use them at home, plant them in your garden or give them to guests as favours.
