In need of some table inspiration? Possibly within the color palette of melon and cornflower blue? You’re in luck! We are excited about our recent feature on Martha Stewart Weddings blog: A Brides Guide. In collaboration with Kristin Newman Designs we took inspiration from the colors of the morning sunrise to create this fresh and simple brunch table setting.
Lindsey Nowak of KND arranged for us to shoot at The Ordinary. The Ordinary is a new “dining must!” The restaurant is no doubt a Charleston gem. During its pre-The Ordinary days it was a bank. You can only imagine the amount of character this place has! Go if you haven’t been!
Natural light streamed through the windows as we set up. If you don’t know this already… photographer Corbin Gurkin OWNS natural light. She is oh so talented! Really enjoyed working with her on this project! While Corbin was working her magic we were busy assembling props and making sure every detailed was accounted for.
Our behind the scenes action and contribution to the project is best illustrated by Kristin Newman in her recent blog post:
Heather chose mokara orchids and parrot tulips to bring cheer to the brunch setting. She pulled the lovely tinted juice glasses and bowls from her “private collection” of specialty pieces. Mary Ruth brought visual texture to the table with patterned place mats and delicately etched champagne flutes. Lots of fun was had behind the scenes while Mary Ruth perfected and taught us all the art of melon-balling, following a great demonstration from Heather! (not as easy as it looks!)
My favorite find of the season are these beautiful handmade copper boxes that I sashed with satin ribbon. They are perfect for holding a small, personal gift to guests! Thank you to Shira Savada, Real Weddings Editor for Martha Stewart Weddings, who invited us to create a table setting in this specific color palette! Shira has a special eye for bringing classic and current beauty to bridal! She’s a superstar in the world of Bridal Media and we are proud to call her a colleague and friend here at Barrie Newman!
It was a pleasure working together on the project as always. Stay tuned for many more to come! Melon ball demonstrations are welcome at the next gig!
