Table Top Tuesday | 10

Pretty Little Inspiration

By BellaGrace Studio & Whitney Neal Photography

For installment ten of Table Top Tuesday,  our intern Julia discovered this beautiful table set up.   Two magnificent photographers Josh Merideth of Bella Grace Studios and Whitney Neal of Whitney Neal Photography teamed up with Jaclyn Journey for styling + florals.  Such a unique way to use navy in any gathering!

What makes this work?  Navy blue linen, gold accents and soft touches of eucalyptus in the arrangement create a lovely color story.  The surrounding trees provide a wonderful backdrop!

What details make a difference?  The gold rim glassware and gold flatware against a dramatic navy linen is eye catching.  The dark compote which holds the delicate floral arrangement is a great contrast as well!
