Burlap is so 2011…Welcome, bark!
Yes, we said bark. Maybe it is inspired by the rustic trend or the desire for a more natural wedding setting (it would go great with our wedding trend #2 Birds) but bark designs are everywhere. Check therse Top Five Reception Trends 2014.
Props as Centerpieces
Re-think the term, reception centerpieces and incorporate decorative accessories (like the kind you would use to spruce up a coffee table, kitchen shelf, or fireplace mantle) into your centerpieces. Sparkly spheres, brilliant mercury glass pieces, or even a retro scale topped with fruit and flowers like this one can become the focal point of your tables.
Black Accents Are Back
We’re talking little black lacquer flower vases, black pillows in the lounge area, black glassware. To keep it from looking too dark, choose a deep jewel tone like deep blue, purple, or even red. It’ll give your reception that timelessly chic, formal, time-for-cocktails-and-fun feel.
Great Gatsby Garden Decor
Button up a backyard or garden wedding with silver mint julep vases; pretty white garden urns and pedestals, and plenty of little silver cocktail hour trays. Small flower arrangements on crisp cocktail tables will set the scene for an event Jay Gatsby would be proud of.
Birds are huge in home décor and fashion right now and that trend will carry over into weddings in 2013. Maybe it is the popularity of Angry Birds or the song of the mocking jay in the Hunger Games that has brought birds back into the limelight, but they make for a beautiful, natural wedding theme.
