What a great Christmas gift! Hot off the press is the winter issue of Seattle Metropolitan Bride + Groom Magazine featuring our whimsical British Isles themed winter table.

We had so much fun putting this table together and utilized vintage brooches from our grandmothers, Nick's grandfather's pocket watch, antique cake plates from my great grandmother, and lots of interesting and unique pieces.

Our goal was to create a table that was cozy, regal, and fun to sit at. We wanted guests to feel that they could stay and chat all night and the pieces of interest (like the gold gilded books, menus on flocked English damask paper, and shortbread and jam) lent well to our goal. We asked wedding artists friends Janet Maples from izzy girl and Anne Bradfield from Floressence to provide us with amazing paper and floral pieces and boy, did they deliver!
We hope you love it as much as we do!
