Yellow is a gorgeous color. It is so bright, cheerful, and warm. This brightness however scares many people causing them to shy away for the color. We set out this week to make yellow less scary and to feature it as the foundation to our tablescape. We knew this was going to be a special table as yellow is typically only used as an accent color or for Easter or baby showers. In order to do this, we needed a strong accent color that was bold enough to not be washed out by the yellow while harmonizing with the shade. Navy was up to the task. Navy is simultaneously bold and complimentary at the same time. It is the perfect accent color. We started with a light-yellow polyester tablecloth and paired it with a navy satin table runner. To add further intricacy to the design, we layered a second runner over the first. We placed our web organza table runner in charcoal on top of the navy satin. It created a beautiful and unique combination of materials and colors! Next, we added these dazzling coral glass charger plates in a lovely shade of royal blue. The royal blue hue compliments the navy runner and helps to attract the eye inward. The table was looking a little heavy on the blue side so we brought in metal tones as accents. Gold acrylic napkin rings hold the navy polyester napkins. While we added two other metal colors into the mix with the centerpieces. We wanted something eye-catching that could stand its own against the vibrant yellow and navy décor. Our 13-in. cut iron pillar candle holder served as the perfect foundation to our main centerpiece. Since we primarily work with silk flowers, having water in the makeshift vase was not an issue. If you plan on using fresh flowers be sure to place a clear oblong vase inside the candle holder for the water. We arranged blue and white hydrangeas in the holder and accented them with yellow daisies and calla lilies. Blue rose garland adorns the bottom of the display perfectly. It adds another element of interest while also complimenting the colors of the flowers. To keep with the yellow theme, we grouped sunflowers down the center of the table. They add a lovely pop of color! The table still needed an extra something before it was complete so we added adorable speckled gold votives and striking brass candle holders to the mix. Each place setting also received an exquisite pyramid-shaped favor box. There you have it! A table that shows yellow is not anything to shy away from! Be bold and mix it up!
