It’s a snap to boost the wow factor of basic white vases -- just add gold.
You don’t have to be a card shark to appreciate the 007 charm of this letterpress design, which sports a black diamond. It sits in a name card holder that was silver -- that is, until we went all King Midas on it with the same gold-leaf kit mentioned earlier. To prevent a game of musical chairs, glue calligraphed name tags to lengths of ribbon and wrap one around each napkin.
Stylize Your Suite
Start spreading the news with invitations that put a fun spin on Art Deco design. Debut your colors on letterpress stationery that’s dressed up for the occasion with a subtle bow-tie illustration (a cheeky wink at the formality of your day). Even the envelope liners sport the motif.
Thanks in Spades
Whether their game is Go Fish or Texas Hold ’Em, guests will dig customized cards -- everyone loves a favor they’ll actually use.
Glam It Up
Pair your gown with graphic accessories and hit the aisle red carpet-style. Best-dressed lists, here you come.
Go for Bold
Get your hands on a big black-and-white bouquet tied with two dramatic ribbons. This clutch of creamy orchids, ranunculus, and Queen Anne’s lace, peppered with black calla lilies and chocolate cosmos, is eccentric and stunning. A gold-trim collar and striped bow add volume to the posy.
Accessories for Him
A watch makes the perfect groom’s gift -- just like your love, he’ll have it for life (aww). These pieces are undeniably distinctive.
Set out lacquer containers holding cards stamped with lucky talismans, like horseshoes and wishbones, and have guests jot down their sentiments. Post-wedding, keep the boxes on your desk for easy perusal whenever you’re feeling nostalgic.
Trick out your dessert bar with miniature morsels so extraordinary, they’re edible art. For a breath-catching display, have your caterer line them up on white trays.
