(Above) Paine Art Center and Gardens’ rich architectural details and limestone walls make an ideal backdrop for this European-inspired scene. Washed-wood Louis-style chairs from Canopies and a white harvest table from A La Crate Vintage Rentals pair perfectly with the romantic tablescape and Ebb & Flow Flowers centerpiece, showcasing a fresh peach, gold and forest-green palette.


Who could refuse an invitation as elegant as this? Watercolor brushstrokes and airy calligraphy come together on thick, raw-edged cotton paper with hints of gold leaf in this chic suite from by Saffron Avenue.


Nothing is sweeter than a dessert table filled with confections—apricot cream galettes, shortbread cookies with natural fruit buttercream, and classic vanilla cakes topped with cream cheese frosting and dusted with edible gold—all from Batch Bakehouse. BBJ Linen covers the table, and the pièce de résistance is the centerpiece from Flora by Jamae, featuring ranunculus, eucalyptus, bay leaf, eryngium, lisianthus, grevillea, plumosa and caramel coral bells arranged in a gold champagne bucket.


Whether walking down the aisle or a garden path, this daffodil*parker bouquet is the perfect accessory. Garden roses, ranunculus, mini calla lilies, kangaroo paw, chocolate Queen Anne’s lace, andromeda heather, seeded eucalyptus, feather eucalyptus, Italian ruscus, cattails and olive foliage combine to effortless effect. The gown, “Laverne” from Catherine Deane, floats in layers of flirty mesh silk.


A seat at this table offers a feast for all the senses. Deep forest green napkins and dip-dyed blush candles by Cherry Blossom Events are layered with sophisticated menu and escort cards from Saffron Avenue, chic and subtle plates, and gold-accent flatware from Event Essentials. A centerpiece by Ebb & Flow Flowers—featuring Clooney ranunculus, butterfly ranunculus, cappuccino roses, jasmine vine, coleus foliage and leucadendron—crowns the table.


No need to complicate matters when simple looks oh, so sweet. These dainty boutonnieres from KP Designs feature ranunculus, jasmine vine and tinted integrifolia.
