Nashville Wedding Trend: Fruit Centerpieces

Monday, June 6, 2016

If you’re looking for creative wedding centerpiece ideas, then you’ll love this sweet trend… incorporating fruit into your centerpieces! It’s the new cornucopia of sorts - a stylish way to bring interest and dimension to your guest tables. Fruit can also add more color and texture to your centerpiece. Try pairing bold colorful fruit with leafy green garlands for a wow-factor. Fruit can also symbolize a season - try apples for fall or peaches for summer. Or incorporate pineapples to symbolize hospitality for out of town guests (or as a nod to South Carolina culture). Here’s more inspiration from recent Nashville wedding industry styled shoots:

Fruit doesn’t always have to be styled in the centerpiece. Cedarwood Weddings carefully crafted these beautiful pears sitting atop a bowl of blackberries on each guest’s plate. Bonus tip: tie place cards to the fruit stems for an even more personalized place setting.

Incorporating bowls of fruit along a farm table and mixing elegant china and glassware is a great way to get this elegant yet earthy look. The wooden elements also give this table an al fresco vibe. Can you just imagine yourself in a dreamy still-life painting in this design by Liberty Party Rental?

Cedarwood Weddings went bold on this fruity centerpiece for their Style Show. I love how bright the colors are! Pairing neutral linen and place settings is a great styling takeaway tip for this trend. This look can bring such a fun tropical element to your wedding!

Would you incorporate fruit into your wedding centerpiece?

Shop for Mothers’ Day and Mother of the Bride Gifts at Nashville Bloom

Thursday, May 5, 2016

Mothers’ Day is right around the corner, so if you haven’t already, now is the time to start thinking of a gift for Mom! And if you are a pre-planner, you’ll want to start thinking of a Mother of the Bride gift as well! There’s nothing better than picking up a fresh bouquet of flowers for her at Bloom. But Bloom offers more than just flowers for Mom or for your wedding day bouquet. Earrings, water bottles and tea towels are just a few of the many gifts you can pick up before Sunday.

Did Mom throw you a bridal shower? Thank her with one of Bloom’s new Paddywax Candles from their Kaleidoscope Collection. They’re soy wax candles that are hand-poured in the U.S. - cute, fragrant and local!

I know these are on my Mothers’ Day wishlist. :)

For Glam Girls!  Paige Brown Designs Has Done It Again: Styled Wedding Shoot at Noah Liff Opera

Friday, March 11, 2016

Talk about putting the "style" in styled shoot.  We're amazed once again at the creative direction of Paige Brown Designs.  It's not easy to dream up a big and bold wedding design and motivate an entire team of event pros to participate.  Amazingly, that's exactly what Paige did: designed a concept so interesting that it compelled paper pros, cake artists, draping extraordinaires, and a host of others to work together to inspire Nashville brides and grooms.

Fall in love with the intricate details, bold colors, and all-around beauty of this styled shoot at Noah Liff Opera, and envision how these Nashville wedding vendors, led by East Nashville's Paige Brown Designs, could help you dream in color.

What inspired the shoot?

I loved the idea of having a blank space as my canvas to do whatever I wanted to creatively.  When designing a venue, you are often forced to design around the decorative details that are already included with the space.  At Noah Liff, that was not the case.  We had an empty room that allowed us to stretch our creativity as far as we wanted.

Tell us about the couple who might appreciate this style/approach. 

I would say this style is for the eclectic glam couple that is not afraid to use bold colors and make exaggerated artistic statements.  This design was created for couples that appreciate sophistication, elegance, and style with a slight couture flair.


What do you most love about the shoot? 

I loved the great vibes and energy that went into this project.  We had the best team of vendors one could ever ask for. Everyone was so passionate and enthusiastic about being part of this story that we were able to tell through our craft.  Every single detail came out just the way I envisioned, and I could not have done it without every vendor who played a part in this shoot!
