Mustard gold, plum, amber, olive, and brown tones with a variety of contrasting textures gave this tabletop a fun 70s feel for today’s 12 Days of Christmas Tabletops theme. Feather accents made their appearance as we make our way through several bird-themed styles over the coming days, but we love the funky feel of 4 Calling Birds came to life.
With the creativity of Ashton Events and Treasury Rentals, we’re in for another cleverly crafted design beautifully captured by Jenna Nicole Photography. Make sure you catch all of the details behind today’s design.
Emily from Treasury Rentals:
“As we were winding down to the final tabletop styles, we found ourselves trying to design several ‘bird-themed’ looks, and we wanted to make sure we created something special and unique for each of these designs. For our Calling Birds style, we focused around the idea of feathered accents. With using feathers, we immediately felt like this lent towards a more rustic style, but we love how Laura took a beautiful twist with the tones and textures to create something especially unique. We found inspiration in focusing on colors and textures when pulling pieces from our collection. We loved how the layered place settings with clear dinner plates allowed us to showcase the beautiful grains of the Acacia Wood Chargers with a peek of feathers sandwiched between the layers. Adding vinyl guest names to the rims of the dishware added a personalized detail that marked each guests seat. Tying a trio of copper flatware with olive green velvet ribbon was a simple detail that added a pop to the place setting.”
Laura from Ashton Events:
“Knowing that we were going to be utilizing feather accents in this style, we wanted to pull our color palette from the natural tones found in the feathers. Though doing a monochromatic brown tablescape felt a little drab, we made tweaks to the hues to bring in a range from mustard yellows, copper, olive green, and plum giving a rich fall-like pairing. We fell in love with Nuage Designs, Inc.‘s Gold Gemma linen–a thick velvet texture with metallic threads woven throughout–this style really helped drive the rest of the design. Creating an asymmetrical tablescape with gold bottle brush Christmas trees on one side and a cluster of mod vases filled with greenery and feathers balancing the opposite end of the table, our style took on a 70s style minimalist vibe that added a unique flair to our series. Creative, fun, and unexpected, we love how the Calling Birds design came to life.”
We love the contrast that we’ve seen as we continue our way through the series, and this style did not disappoint. Warm tones, fun textures, and a willingness to stretch their creativity, this eye-catching style continues to pull us in through every layer of detail that they presented.
