When it comes to weddings, nothing puts a stamp on your wedding style and overall reception vibe better than a unique tablescape. One of the most carefully crafted and curated elements of a wedding, table decor sets the mood and feel for your reception, and creates a special atmosphere to compliment the meal being served.
When hosting our first New Year’s Eve (and a birthday!) celebration in our new home for visiting family, I knew I wanted to create a special tablescape to ring in the New Year, and make the event even more special and memorable. My husband- who’s favorite hobby is cooking – created an indulgently rustic menu, paired with wines and champagnes from California. So it seemed only fitting to tie in our location and menu with a fitting center piece of fresh olive branches…cut by yours truly from our front yard.
A symbol of peace and new beginnings, Olive branches represent a new start – much like a New Year. When creating a special event, whether it’s a wedding or special dinner party, incorporating unique and meaningful elements into your table decor help to make the affair unforgettable, and that much more personal.
