Romantic Candle Lit Reception Table

Light Waves

At the banquet-style table, sleek, architectural elements, like vertical chandeliers and contemporary candelabras, coexist with classic crystal stemware (though it would be easy to achieve this same effect with glass accents). To create a sense of intimacy and keep the look from feeling austere, the floral designer crafted “a free-flowing floral tablescape,” as she puts it: Instead of individual centerpieces, organic clusters of roses, sweet pea and Phalaenopsis orchids in soft shades of peach, blush and pink cascade down the runner. Butterflies interspersed throughout the flowers and place settings speak to the sweet motif set by the stationery and add a touch of whimsy. Design Within Reach “Cellula” chandeliers, crystal candelabras, crinkled silk chair covers and tablecloth, all available through Belle Fleur, bellefleurny.com. Chairs and table from Party Rental Ltd, partyrentalltd.com.
