This lush winter white wedding reception held at The Clubhouse at Riverwalk in Littleton Colorado was styled to be both elegant and cozy.
Elegance was achieved with a color palette of white and ivory with a touch of deep royal blue. I embellished each chair back with a royal blue satin sash. Staying with neutral linens kept the vibe clean and classy so that the focal point became the all white flowers.
I designed both tall and short centerpieces using all white flowers. The tall “structural” arrangements were so simple and gorgeous! I used large white calla lilies and white dendrobium orchids, both tied into bunches. Beaded garlands loosely tied and draped around the flowers and vases added a touch of glamor.
The downside to this type of arrangement is that time must be allowed to assemble this centerpiece at the venue; otherwise the bunched flowers will shift too much during transport.
For the short centerpieces I chose roses, white hypericum and cream colored stock. I use stock every chance I get… it has a delicious fragrance. To economize I also used white carnations. Dusty Miller adds a nice silvery sage to soften the edges of each arrangement. And of course a little glitz was added with delicate beaded stems.
I don’t typically love carnations but when they are bunched together they almost look like a hydrangea!
Hot chocolate is the epitome of coziness, right? Check out this always popular hot cocoa bar. The bride’s Aunties contributed chocolate dipped spoons and candy canes for stirring, marshmallows and a variety of scrumptious flavored creamers.
Almost all of my brides want a candy buffet. What is it about jars of candy that turns adults into delighted kids for a little bit?
It was a delight working with this sweet couple!
Many thanks to Amber Allen for the beautiful images.
