Sorry for the late post but at least it’s the first of many now that I’m back from my trip! Loads to share with you but for now, I am SUPER excited to share with you the last of a series of three posts from Clockwork Wedding Productions, based out of Edmonton, Alberta. Catherine and Karen tell me that one of the items I posted inspired this shoot, so of course, it has to be my favorite :] Not to mention, grey & yellow are a combination I’ve recently started to obsess about and if I could have a second wedding, I wouldn’t hestitate to use this color palette. Hold tight because this next set will definitely knock your socks off!
These two colours have a strangle hold over Karen these days. She loves them in combination. So it was an instant attraction when we walked up to the wall of discounted bolts at Fabricland and her eye quickly caught this yellow and grey fabric. We ultimately chose it for our tablecloth and later used it inside our wall boxes.
The fabric’s design quickly became our inspiration for our entire table. We pulled out a snapshot the pattern and using plain white plates we hand painted them in a similar grey swirl.
We knew we wanted something stunning on the walls to really anchor our table. We spotted a small box on a guest book table showcased on Wedding Obsession. We had the men in our lives build much larger versions for us, added our table cloth fabric, scoured the various scrapbook stores for inspirational papers in our colours and added touches of yellow lemons, fluffy grey pussy willows and various flower touches to bring our table to life with hints of spring.
Karen’s paper touches of handmade invitations, menu cards and napkin rings really made the table stand out. It goes to show that you don’t have to spend a lot of money if you are a little handy and think outside the box!
You can’t look at this table without craving a sweet lemony treat. So we paired it with a dessert table. We left the yellow to the desserts and gave them a gorgeous lush grey fabric to melt into. Duchess Bake Shop gave us a hand and provided lemon tarts – their specialty cake called the Duchess in a natural yellow marzipan. Their macaron trees in almond and lemon are stunning. We added almond meringues and cake pops from another local bakery and we were set! Orchids give this dessert table such a luxurious feel. We love it!
Love it too? Be sure to keep an eye out for more from the talented Clockwork Wedding Productions in the future. Thanks Catherine and Karen for sharing the amazing three tablescapes with us which I’m sure provided bountless inspiration.
