little table setting details........

For our table flowers, I decided not match too much, so I asked our florist, Livia Cetti from The Green Vase, to make each table a little different using various vessels and flowers. The dining room has a lot of dark wood and beautiful large portraits, so didn't want the flowers to overwhelm and fight with the space. Livia used a variety of colors to go along with my color palette of violet, saffron yellow and cream. The table flowers included violets, white narciss, purple frutilaria, purple anenomies, assorted tulips and ranuculas in shades of orange and yellow and gloriosa lilies in orange and yellow mixed in with little votive candles.
Along with the flowers, I added a little light fun.
With so many new faces around, (half the wedding guests where from Italy and the other half from America), I thought the fortune fish would be the perfect creative ice breaker to spark conversation. And guess what? it worked! Everyone LOVED it! it was hilarious.

Note to future brides, not all flowers I wanted were available in February and winter is a time when flower prices are a bit higher (also, with valentines day just around the corner prices where even more) Just keep in mind that even if you have your heart set on something, you may not get it, even if your willing to pay a higher price. This can happen, regardless of which season your wedding take place.
