Big Debuts at 2011 Tabletop Market

For those of you who don’t know what the New York Tabletop Market is, you’ve been missing out! The Tabletop trade show features the new lines from our favorite designers, the newest trends in the kitchen and the up-and-coming tabletop designers of 2011. So you might be wondering why you should care (if your not in love with tabletop designs, like me)?

The new items debuting at the Tabletop Market this year, could be on your registry next year! As the Tabletop Market takes place, those of us who aren’t fortunate enough to attend, can catch the little glimpses that the designers reveal. So go ahead and take look, you may be seeing it in your department store when it’s time to register.

The Glam-Rock Tablescape

I discovered this amazing Glam-Rock Tablescape, produced by Haute Couture Linens in California. Even though it isn’t my style, I love all the amazing details that they added to the overall look. There are many brides that are looking for an edgy rock-style look for their wedding. I think this tablescape is the most formal and fabulous way of doing so! Between the candles, flatware and florals, every little detail was carefully thought out to create this tablescape.

Tablescape Fab: Tyler Perry’s NAACP After Party

I read a LOT of celebrity gossip blogs. I find myself to get even more excited when they cover celebrity events or dinners because as a planner I sit here and check to see if the plates are in the right place and how great the overall decor/theme looks.  And of course think of ways to see how I can do their next event!

I was pleasantly pleased when I saw the pictures from Tyler Perry’s after party. The overall design was simplistic yet chic.  What do you think?

Pictures from the NotWedding 2010 Atlanta

We just wanted to thank everyone that came out and supported the NotWedding. This year was a smashing success and it was all due to the vendors and brides that came out to soak up the inspiration. The vendors were able to create 30×30 environments so not only were you able to get a tablescape for inspiration, but also experience the entire space from ceremony to reception. There were also couples for each environment.

Here are some teaser images from the amazing Hollie Lytle.

Published: Atlanta Occasions Inspiration Shoot Spread

Some of the top wedding and event vendors in Atlanta got together to and put together several tablescapes to be used in the current issue of Atlanta Occasions magazine.

We knew that we wanted to overall feel to be mod, seventies inspired but with tons of color popping out in all of the details.  We ended up with three wonderfully designed tables. Each with their own personality and feel against the Atlanta backdrop.

Tablescape we Adore

Sometimes you flip through a magazine and you can find the most inspiring tablescape or decor item. Here is an image that has had the most impact for me this week.

Around the table there are compliments of a plum chandelier, cranberry votives and table runner with matching glassware and decor. The use of texture is brought in with the ribbon tied around the flatware and feather accenting the bread dish. Everything screams cohesive.

2009 Trend Alert – Domed Pedastal Dishes

From the runways of the Special Event Show to the tablescape design challenges hosted by NACE, one item that was sure to be present in the design are domed pedstal dishes.

Adding much more than a way to serve your desert, these beauties can serve as the focal point to your event. In an array of colors and shapes and sizes, they can even be reused after the main event has taken place. Here are some of our faves.

Damask: It’s All The Rave!

Damask has been the “it” design this year. Here at ellyB, we can not get enough of it. One of the greatest ways to showcase the design is through tablescapes. We think these pictures will give some inspiration to all the fellow Damask fans out there. Enjoy!
