It may seem like a tall order, but it’s easier than you think to throw a classy, modern-day soirée. Follow these party-planning basics to shower any bride in style.
Tablescapes for the Romantic Bride
Enter the world of soft lighting, hanging ivy and warm touches. Cozy, elegant place settings are all the rage right now, no matter the season or couple. Start with your table - leave it bare or drape a creamy light or dark tablecloth as your base. Simple is better, so keep the chargers a complementary hue and focus on solid, light-colored dishware. The "wow" factor comes from your centerpiece, so don't hold back on your garland, be it floral or greenery. Lastly, add all the warm mood-setting lights: Candles scattered on the table, hanging globes or bulbs, glowing lanterns - these and more will bring all the romantic, love-filled vibes to create the perfect atmosphere for you and your guests.
