Rich royal colors that remind us of this season of Advent gave a different type of Christmas feel to the next tablescape in our 12 Days of Christmas series.
With this team of V List members being based out of Lakeland, Florida, a city known for their connection to swans, the 7 Swans a Swimming has taken a more literal look in their design choices. Brass swans flanking either side of the bold blooms of the centerpiece created a regal style that can easily translate beyond the Christmas season.
Laura from Ashton Events:
“We knew from the the start of our planning our tabletop styles that we would be incorporating brass swan figures into this style. Because we had our link to our theme already taken care of, it provided more flexibility and freedom when designing the rest of the look. A bold eggplant linen with a soft velvet texture gave us a beautiful base for our design. We created a centerpiece style that incorporated some of the wintery elements such as evergreen and berries, but gave it a bright pop of color with berry and pink tones. The end result was everything we imagined it would be!”
Emily from Treasury Rentals:
“This style really allowed us to play with colors and textures that would help carry the the design. Though we met the mark with our theme by using brass swans in the centerpiece style, finding a Christmas link was a little more challenging. A color palette of deep purple, pinks, gold and white reminded us of the Advent candles that are lit each week as we approach Christmas during this season. With Laura’s feature centerpiece, we wanted to tone down the place settings by creating something simple and traditional. Gold metal charger plates added the perfect amount of metallic shine to the table, picking up the brass elements in the centerpiece and the gold in the flatware. We chose our white dipped Goa flatware as a way to add an elegant and modern pop to the table, and our pink vintage goblets mirrored the soft pink toned florals and napkins while adding color and texture to the tablescape. We also added in brass place card frames to mark guests’ seats–a simple detail that took a plain name card and made it a little more special.”
We love this bold and elegant style with the subtle nods to Christmas in the colors they chose, but can carry it’s own weight in almost any season.
