I’m loving this shoot from Pressed Cotton featuring some of their products, from the escort cards to the fabulous guest book cards!  You can search their site by style, but of course, modern will always be my favorite.

The New Modern: Pink and Gold Fete

Happy New Year Brooklyn Bride fans! Here we are with a glamorous table for you to see. Okay, Okay – I know this has frilly pink flowers (but at least no poofy dress!). Forgive me,  I just can’t resist peonies. We kept it simple with low clusters of blooms and twinkly gold votive candles. A cheap store bought house number from Home Depot was easily gold leafed for a snazzy table number. Sprinkle some sequins, throw down tulle and ribbons for a runner and you are done. Cheers! – Denise

The New Modern: Beach Inspired Wedding


Hello Summer! Here we are with our next Modern Table setting. This time I was directly inspired by the cover of Undecorate: The No Rules Approach to Interior Design by Christiane Lemieux.  There is something so soothing about the cool blues and light woods of a beach house.  I wanted the table to reflect that ease and be filled with lots of different textures. Again, looking to make the design approachable we kept the table cloth white and used different glasses for vases. To jazz up  plain glass vases I covered them in twisted muslin that I quickly white washed with some leftover house paint. The table number is a regular house number I picked up at Home Depot and covered with twine.  Full disclosure; I put this design together in late spring (hence the sweet pea and tulips) but it would work equally well with late summer flowers, like grasses and Queen Anne’s Lace. Enjoy! ~ Denise

Modern red & black tablescape


I’d love to introduce you to the latest Brooklyn Bride intern, Michaela!  She’s going to be helping me behind the scenes, and since she did such a great job with her submission for the Modern Tablescape Challenge a few weeks back,  occasionally do some inspirational shoots for us, so give her a big welcome!

I’m Michaela, intern at Brooklyn Bride, writer of bliss! and start-up entrepreneur. As a portfolio project for our new company Hey Look, my business partner Lotta and I wanted to create a very “Brooklyn Bride” inspiration shoot – romantic and whimsical, yet modern and a little bit fancy.

Our aim is to show that you don’t need a lot of fancy and expensive ingredients to set up a gorgeous dinner table. We used 300 red and purple carnations to create the flower decor. Ok, 300 flowers don’t come cheap, but you could use a lot less and fill up the arrangements with greens from a forest. Drinking glasses with pretty black ribbons serve as vases, the table runner is a simple scarf. The menus are printed on basic white paper, cut into small rectangles and glued onto red cards. Add some candles and your favorite dinner ware – and you’re done! Any dresser or side table can serve as a finger food and welcome buffet. Use the same type of flower and candle decor to tie the whole look together. - Michaela

Outside the Flowerbox with Poppies & Posies

I’m so excited to welcome Sierra & Juliet of Poppies & Posies as a new contributer here on Brooklyn Bride!   These lovely ladies will be joining us every month to showcase fabulously modern florals…today, we start with a shoot inspired by a recent trip to Costa Rica…

modern floral arrangement

Recently, Poppies & Posies was lucky enough to take a trip to Costa Rica. The unusual plant life and exotic flowers that encompasses the country side there were incredibly beautiful. One particularly inspiring piece of flora that we stumbled upon was a flowering vine.  The vine had draped itself all over an ancient tree. Its bright yellow florets looked like the were glowing in the sunlight. It was truly other wordly and made the entire P&P team stop and stand in awe at the base of the tree for an inappropriate amount of time.  The locals later told us that this vine only flowers once every two years and and when it does it only last for a day or two. Alas, when we went back two days later all of the petals had already fallen from the vine and the tree was bare again.
Our tablescape was designed in the hopes of transporting each guest to that almost other worldly, tropical jungle. A leaf canopy was built for the guests to sit under and large fiddle heads, gloriosa, and moss provide a jungle-esque runner. If you look closely there are butterflies and tiny turquoise beetles hiding in the flora of the tablescape. Janelle Sing handmade the seating cards with mini illustrations of bugs and mini pineapples provide a holder at each setting. Crisp white china and simple silver flatware provide a modern edge.
