A Starry Night Wedding Inspired Table

My team and I put together this Starry Night wedding inspired table a couple weeks ago at the Altman Building in midtown Manhattan. It started with an adorable salad plate from West Elm… it just seemed like something that would fit a dinner at home or a wedding or a birthday party or any special occasion tabletop.  I grabbed a set and they inspired me to design a dark, elegant and sexy table that balances traditional beauty with a touch of edginess.  The mirrored table from Luxe Event Rentals is made of cut mirror panels that actually reminded me of the points of a star – which then reminded me of some of the gold edge terraria that I had lurking in my floral studio.  All the elements came together, but the pièce de résistance was the constellation inspired modern glassware from Maison de Carine that looked as if they were made solely for the purposes of finishing off this table! All of the flowers and paper were created in-house at Lindsay Landman Paper and Lindsay Landman Flowers. And a very special thank you to Shawn Connell of Shawn Connell Photography for capturing the details so elegantly. A few highlights from the shoot below. Enjoy!

Red and Burgundy Wedding Centerpieces

The range of reds, burgundies and purples that are available in flowers is truly breathtaking. So I wanted to use them all! I love that this palette is monochromatic, but not boring, as my designers and I brought together both seasonal and year-round blooms in a variety of sizes and shapes to create texture while still maintaining a more tailored centerpiece structure.

I always want to carry a design concept through every part of a tabletop, but avoid doing it in a matchy-matchy way that can be predictable and elementary.  So, while I was inspired by a starry night for this tablescape, you won’t see any stars on the paper items. Instead, I went for the softness of a sky-inspired watercolor and added a touch of luxury with a deep navy letterpress in soft, textured paper.


Mini Custom Engraved Telescope Place Cards

Guests LOVE to see their own names… they never tire of it! So, since I know that it is already a place of connection, I like to up the ante on a place card and make it unique and unexpected.  I had a vision to add mini telescopes to this tabletop, but never thought I’d find such an absolutely perfect one – just the right size and shape, primed to be calligraphed by the brilliant Joanne Day. This is something that is a worthy, personalized keepsake with enough whimsy to not be taken too seriously, but enough luxury to finish off the place setting perfectly.
