For Luxe Linen's 2016 launch party for their new line, several stunning tablescapes were created by pairings of well-regarded wedding planners and florists. Natalie Good of A Good Affair worked with Little Hill Floral Designs to create the stunning tabletop they entitled “Hibiscus Glitz,” named for the elegant “Hibiscus” linen in blush from Luxe Linen used to dress the table. The creative team expertly paired “Blush Iridescence Dupionique” napkins with the ballet pink linen featuring a gold floral print that manages to be oversized, yet subtle.
Armed with the finest fabrics, it was time to craft a stunning tablescape that any bride would love for her big day. “I chose to bring in a rich palette that would be unexpected to the guests,” Natalie explains. “With rich eggplant, burgundy, blush, greenery, and dusty blue I knew the florals would pop off the table.” Instead of the traditional choice of one floral display in the centerpiece, several large bouquets were formed to create a while line of centerpieces, capped off with an elevated floral arrangement on a golden stand to mark the end of the table. “My inspiration for this design was to create an indoor garden mixed with modern elements,” tells Natalie, although the impressive florals and quirky dinnerware and votives spoke for themselves. Tufted cream dining chairs provided by Revelry Event Designers added a sophisticated look to the installation. Revelry also contributed the impressive chandelier and stand to allow the light fixture to hang over the table without being suspended from the ceiling. “I love a good chandelier and what better way to create the wow then to cover one in greenery and gorgeous blooms,” shares Natalie.
Gold was the clear accent, with bullion details throughout the tabletop: from the chargers, rims of glassware, opulent napkin rings, calligraphy of the table numbers, glass menus, and more. To add some extra personality to the table, each place setting had a different salad plate that featured a food illustration paired with a relevant and lighthearted pun, such as “It takes two to mango.” The various details show how much stylish linens can inspire a design. As Natalie divulges, “The linen was a jumping off point and then I ran with it.”
