Tabletop: Ziggy With It

Take a cue from your closet and select patterned pieces to dress your reception tables


Imagining a young, hip couple craving a playful wedding theme, Ashley Lloyd of Attention 2 Detail Events dreamed up this vibrant tablescape featuring a chevron pattern. She chose a mint green, bright yellow, and cool gray color palette based on one of her favorite summer cocktails: the mojito. Served in highball glasses with aluminum straws wrapped in custom chevron flags, mojitos are a fun and refreshing signature drink. A green table linen topped with a gray chevron table runner sets the stage for glass vases filled with silver sequins and petals from yellow roses, orchids, ranunculus, and button flowers. Acrylic details lend a contemporary touch: guests’ names are spelled out with sequins on free-standing acrylic place cards; clear panels stenciled with white chevron patterns accent a three-tier matte gray fondant cake; button flowers arranged in a chevron pattern on suspended acrylic panels create a blooming backdrop. Send guests a sneak peek of this modern main event with custom invitations placed in chevron-print fabric clutch-wraps tied with ribbon.
