The inspiration behind our “Citrus Countryside” theme was relaxing in the countryside on a lazy sunny afternoon while sipping a glass of champagne. We wanted to combine elemnts of Italy, France, and Napa’s sophisticated wine country with the relaxed Pacific Northwest wine country. Incorporating citrus elements and colors into our theme really helped to create a cheerful ambiance that brightened the space and made it feel like it was summer in January!
Butter & Bloom brought our theme to life with her gorgeous flowers that really popped on the dark wood tables from Seattle Farm Tables. One of my favorite design details were the mini lemons, limes and oranges that she placed in the brass candle sticks which added a touch of citrus without being too overdone, they were simply cute and adorable! Our welcome table felt like spring time at the farmer’s market with her potted daffodils paired with crates from Vintage Ambiance that I filled with citrus fruit. And her citrus and greenery chandelier hanging in the tent? Absolutely stunning!!!
The paper goods and details that Rosie with Song Bird Paperie created were full of so much joy and definitely helped to set the cheerful tone for our space. Everything she created tied in nicely with the orange napkins from BBJ Linens and the place settings from ABC Cort. From the adorable lemon tags on the citrus marmalade favors, to the wrapped oranges used as place cards, to the brightly colored programs and menus that reminded me of citrus flavored popsicles, and the fun banners throughout the space – I loved how everything she created added a fun pop of color and whimsy!
You can’t have a theme inspired by the French countryside without a nod to French desserts! The SweetSide created macaron towers that were not only striking as centerpieces on our display table but they were super delicious as well!
