Chocolate Brown and Mocha Wedding Ideas

Mmmm, who doesn't love chocolate?? If you love it as much as I do then why not use it as your base colour for your wedding? Add lighter Mocha tones for contrast and accent with a bright colour. Pinks, Greens and Turquoises all work well with brown.

Tropical Wedding Ideas

Well I am back and refreshed after a week in sunny Florida with my family, so I thought I would put together some tropically inspired wedding or event ideas for you. Bright colours and exotic flowers are all you need to give your tables that tropical feel. There are lots of colour combinations you could choose from more beachy blues, to floral inspired pinks and oranges.

Spiral Wedding Ceremony

I just love love love this idea, what a perfect way to give every guest a front row seat as you walk down the isle! Would you believe there are 70 seats there? The yellow flowers and petals are a simple but effective way to bring in your colours. Other ideas are to use chair sashes on your Chiavari chairs.
I would love to set up a ceremony like this...anyone in the Burlington area interested? I can organise all your rentals and set it up for you! Visit www.classicweddingsandevents.com or email me at info@classicweddingsandevents.com for more information!

Spring Colours Table

The new "Spring Colours" Display table at the Pat's Party Rentals showroom.
I found these super cute little coloured bird houses at Michael's and just had to incorporate them in to a table for spring! Using the matching napkin, spring florals and coloured class vases set against a plain white 120" round linen with Silver Chiavari Chairs. For the plates I used the snowdrop pattern dinner and dessert plate and on the side for coffee and cheese, these delicate floral cup and saucers. All rentals available from Pat's Party Rentals Burlington, concept, design and creation by Kirsty, Classic Weddings and Events!

Mardi Gras Table

The Mardi Gras inspired table that I created for the Pat's Party Rentals Burlington showroom. Here I used a black 120" round tablecloth for the base, then on top a 120" Round Pumpkin Satin Tablecloth which I swagged to give a dramatic effect. Brown Chivari Chairs with black pads, gold band plates, silver cutlery and 2 sizes of wine glass complete the settings. I used the two napkin colours Plum and Teal, folded over the plates to draw in the colours from the mask decorations, and created the centrepiece from sparkly Christmas picks and mardi gras beads.

Pink and Turquoise Wedding Ideas

These Tiffany Blue and Soft Pink shades just scream romance. You could go old country vintage or soft beachy themed. I love the look of lots of pale pink flowers in turquoise glass vases, try mixing types of flowers and shapes and sizes of vases to use as centrepieces. Add lots of white to really bring out the colours.

Purple and Turqoise Wedding Ideas

I have to admit that this is one of my all time favourite colour combinations. Peacock feathers work perfectly with these colours too. Use satin tablecloths for bold and rich colour, or for a softer feel go for the organza overlays. Alternating chair sash colours is a nice way to bring in both colours, and incorporating diamante buckles adds a touch of bling!

Blue and Yellow Wedding Ideas

Whether you want to take it country chic, or royal class, Sunny Yellow and Sapphire Blue is a versitile and vibrant colour combination. For summer have your bridesmaids in yellow, use lighter and brighter shades with accents of blue. For a more formal look feature the blue with highlights of yellow. Either way is a winning combination!

Yellow and Orange Wedding Ideas

I love yellow and orange as a colour palatte for a bright and fresh summer wedding! You don't have to think oranges and lemons either, there are some beautiful orange and yellow floral options out there. For tables I especially love the classic white tablecloths with colour accents, simple but effective!

Hot Pink and Orange Wedding Ideas

Hot Pink and Orange, so bright and fun! The perfect colour combination for a spring 2012 wedding. Orange and hot pink satin tablecloths or chair covers are perfect for your tables to add a bold pop of colour, or add a more subtle hint with organza chair sashes.
