Bridal Show 2011- The Decor

Our Bridal Show was two weeks ago, so what better time to reveal some of the gorgeous details that make The Canterbury Place's show unique?!? This week we will show you food, flowers, cake, invitations. Today let's start off with the decor.

One of the unique things about The Canterbury Place is that the feel of our dining hall can be completely changed based on your wedding theme/ colors. We used our theme of Hollywood Glamour and incorporated it with the colors of red, maroon, fuchsia, hot pink, eggplant purple, grey and black. Here is what we came up with:

Isn't the overall room shot amazing?!? For the linens we used some great combinations. We kept everything grounded with a base of grey polyester-cotton. All of the table toppers we alternated with hot pink satin, eggplant purple satin, and purple pin tuck. The sashes were a silver satin tied in a slip knot. For the clouding on the food tables, crushed grey was used.

If these aren't your colors, we have hundreds of options in different colors and textures. For the ceiling decor, we tented the ceiling in black organza for a dramatic effect. In the center of the room, we hung glass vases alternated with crystals.

Here's a close-up, but you really need to see it in real life to understand the beauty. The crystals and glass sparkle in the candle light and have a more modern appeal to them. The cool thing about the glass vases is that flowers can be added (like the orchids above) in addition to colored rocks/beads. Faux tea lights could also be placed in the glass vases for a gorgeous effect.
This ceiling decor is now available for any of our brides- please ask your wedding planner for more details.

To welcome guests into the dining hall, we had a graphic artist design a sign that we put in a big black frame and added flowers around. This idea could easily be adapted to a wedding, with a monogram or welcome to our wedding with the bride and groom's names. This is an inexpensive way to add a big pop of color and customize our hall!

Above our S'more and Hot Cocoa table (more details on that to come with the food post!), we put up a college of frames. The center ornate frame had a monogram with framed fabric (which matched some runners used elsewhere with the decor). The surrounding frames had silhouettes of a bride and groom, love quotes, and beautifully designed labels indicating what was on the tables below. These ideas are a great way to both personalize and brand your wedding while creating decor.
***Please note, if you would like to adhere anything to the walls of The Canterbury Place, our staff must hang it to avoid any damage. Please ask our wedding planner for pricing.
In the ballroom (where the vendors booths were set-up), we hung up our newest color of ceiling swags- grey! On top of the swags we added Italian lights and hung Chinese Lanterns in a variety of colors. This look would be perfect for dancing and is more of a fun look.

Thank you to Dustin Izatt Photography for all of the beautiful pictures!
