tabletop: citrus details bring a table to life

In continuation from yesterday’s post, I mentioned I would share more of the citrus story I created and styled for Martha Stewart Weddings. Above, a floral centerpiece incorporating citrus is the focal point, while a soft orange/yellow cloth lets it stand out. ¬†White china, chairs and clear votives and glassware keep the table light and airy. Below, details of the table, like citrus lollipops covered in clear cellophane with a numbered round sticker to denote the table number. Attached to the lollipops with waxed twine are rectangular calligraphed place cards to personalize each pop (add a bit of whimsy) and guide each guest to their seat. Burplap bags filled with a clementine and almonds and decorated with a paper orange blossom act as favors and are hung at each chair. In keeping with the citrus theme and palette, the bride’s bouquet and flower girl’s bouquet and headpiece include citrus botanicals. -Lynn Butler Beling

Of Note: Another centerpiece idea that my colleague Rebecca Thuss did at her own wedding was to fill a large glass compote with lemons, below is a version of this idea which includes grapefruit with the lemons and ribbons pinned to the tops of the fruit. A menu card trimmed in ribbon leans against the centerpiece. Photo via Martha Stewart Weddings.
