Fabulous Wedding Photo Shoot: A Regal Tablescape

As you know, I am hosting the photo shoot entries for this year's Annual Backstage Bridal Pro Academy Scholarship Contest. Wedding Pros from across the United States submitted entries for a chance to win a full scholarship to Backstage Bridal Pro Academy this September at the number one resort in the nation, Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach, California where they will join other wedding professionals in elevating their wedding planning business at THE best educational experience around. (no passport required).

Let's start today off with a rich tablescape replete with rich golds and purples. Elvira DeCuir of 3D Memoirs in Long Beach, California, was inspired be the words Fabulous and Graceful. She successfully combined the rich tones with pearls and crystals to visually denote characters of elegance and extravagance. Be sure to leave your comments if you are in love with Elvira's entry. Your votes can help her get to Backstage Bridal Pro Academy!

Elvira shares how the union of Fabulous and Graceful served as the inspiration for her "Regal Tablescape". "This inspirational color palette assisted in developing a beautiful tablescape with de-cor items that harmoniously exude the words Fabulous + Graceful while infusing aspects of chic, sexy, glitzy, and glam into the concept."
"The setting for this tablescape can easily be displayed indoors or outdoors, but due to the time of year and weather we chose to go with an indoor venue. I chose a 6 ft rectangular shaped table and ornately carved wood chairs with gold chair pads for the tablescape."
"To exemplify FABULOUS, I chose an iridescent eggplant purple taffeta table linen and napkins to decorate the table, which provided a rich and elegant appearance while adding texture and complimenting the gold elements and decor. The focal point of the table decor that embodies the word GRACEFUL are two beautifully elegant goblets with crackled glass and gold and ivory tile accents. These goblets were filled with complimentary shades of elegant purple flowers, such as sweet peas, scabiosas, anemones, and yellow button mums, that were enveloped by large pearls and crystals."
"I found four beautiful gold candlestick holders that I adorned with crystal accents to add chic, sexy, and bling elements to the decor. The other beautiful details included in this tablescape are four glass cylinder vases filled with stones and flowers, and 6 vintage gold mercury glass votives. Elegant silverware, wine goblets, gold chargers and ivory-gold plates with a decorative rim are used to set the table for guests."
"Each place setting has a square folded napkin with a decorative flower, holding a purple menu adorned with pearls and crystals along with a two-toned purple place-card in an elegant script font. Each favor is hand-wrapped with a FABULOUS vintage fabric tied with an ivory ribbon and a textured Thank You for each guest."
"The combination of rich colors, texture, circular shapes, flowers, and jewels culminated in an overall FABULOUS & GRACEFUL presentation of chic elegance and striking elements of beauty."
