Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of meeting photographer Jill Thomas (who happens to be as charming as she is talented), and I’ve been itching to share her work here on Snippet & Ink, so I’m really excited about today’s two-part feature from Jill and Carter & Cook Event Company. Ashlyn Carter created two gorgeous tables that are such perfect timing for this week – they’d certainly make beautiful wedding tables, but don’t you think they’d be fabulous for Thanksgiving, too!? Ashlyn describes this first table:
This table was inspired by fashion – gold sequins, heart lockets, hot shades of purple and confetti fill this modern table with color. The bold color against the dark rustic wood table with sprinkled confetti screams celebration! We designed a fun, colorful garland made of fuchsia, warm pink and purple-tone folded paper strung together with thread. The gold place mats were made out of gold card stock lined with gold sequins, and the heard shaped menus were designed to resemble old fashioned heart lockets.
Sequin swizzle sticks might be my favorite part of this entire shoot.
Bougainvillea makes for such a unique and stunning bridal bouquet!
