Okay, I’m pretty excited about this tabletop because first and foremost, I love breakfast and a whole table designed around the first and best meal of the day is amazing. Plus, the colors are so much fun! I would love to be a guest of a wedding with this many cheerful details. This look could easily translate into a bridesmaids breakfast or engagement party. Read on to discover the inspiration behind this Amorology design. What’s your favorite element?
The Inspiration: The egg stars in this tablescape, inspired by the symbolism the egg offers newlyweds: new beginnings and the anticipation of what’s to come. White and yellow egg accents are combined with a fresh spring palette, then given a feminine touch with soft peonies, veronica, feathers, orchids, billy balls and amaryllis in shades of coral, pink and white. Nestled inside rooster egg cups are delicate hand-stamped eggs, marked with inspirational words—“patience,” “love” and “complete,” for instance—relating to marriage and the nurturing of one’s love. Hand-embroidered napkins, retro diner menus and vintage dishes give the table a nod to the past, while still keeping it fresh and current.
Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed: 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries, 1 banana, 1⁄2 pint pomegranate juice, 1⁄2 cup vanilla yogurt, 1 cup crushed ice. Garnish with whipped cream and fresh raspberries.
