Kristy explains how she pulled together this beautiful look for an intimate and romantic wedding affair: "When I hear the word graceful I think of intimate, delicate and romantic. I chose to create a table setting for a small dinner reception for a couple. It takes place in the back yard of the brides childhood home. The color palette for this affair was gold, silver and creams."
"The linen was a soft ivory duponi linen that I paired with a ginger bengaline moiré napkin from Fabulous Events. The napkin was then topped with a delicate pearl cluster napkin ring. To add a little fabulousness to the table I choose a champagne sparkle plate charger from Pier 1. Holland Designs created the romantic menu cards that mimicked the look of hand written calligraphy with a few added rhinestones."
"To keep things simple and let the other details take center stage I chose to create two small flower arrangements. I wanted the flowers to have that just tossed together look. White roses, blue hydrangea and Phalaenopsis orchids were all randomly placed in my DIY mercury cylinder vases and then a few gold and silver mercury votives were scattered on the table. No one can resist a little bling so the table number, also created by Holland Designs was a carved wood number that was decked out in rhinestone crystals."
"To round off the complete look I used gold flatware, gold rimmed crystal stemware and gold chivari chairs with ivory cushions. The outdoor space was a stone patio where the table sat under a pergola that housed a vintage chandelier that has oxidized over the years."
"Behind the guest table was a stone console table that I placed varying sized cylinders with candles and votives. Inside the farm house the cake was displayed."
"To carry the gracefulness to the cake Patty cakes and creations did a classic buttercream cake with hand piped roses. The soft delicate details of this reception look carried out the theme of “Gracefulness” while the little touches of sparkles and bling brought the “Fabulous” to the party in which no bride can resist."
DIY Instructions for the Mercury Glass
Items needed:
Clear Glass Vase
Krylon Looking Glass Spray Paint
Krylon Gold Metallic Spray Paint ( I used this to give a 2 toned look to glass)
Dish of equal parts white vinegar and water
Paper Towel

1) Spray the inside of the clear glass vase with the Krylon Looking Glass Spray Paint. Let dry (5 minutes)
2) Take a paper towel and dip it into the vinegar and water mixture. Gently rub the inside of the vase with the towel in different areas until desired look is achieved. *** you want the glass to look like the paint has worn away over time****
3) Now spray the inside of the vase very lightly with the gold spray so that the gold is shown through the areas that the looking glass spray was rubbed off from. Let dry.
