7 Ways Neutrals Can Anchor Your Wedding Tablescape

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Basic beige? Not even. Choose linens, rentals and tenting in neutral hues to tie your flowers, table settings, and decor together. Ask your wedding planner and florist for tips, and take inspiration from these neutral wedding palette “tricks!”

1. A pattern in a neutral color acts almost as a solid.

2. Neutral chairs and linens paired with greenery bring the outdoors in.

3. Barely-there “ghost” chairs and soft white tenting create airy space for larger receptions.

4. Pair a neutral pattern with gold and a range of pinks and greenery for a fresh palette.

5. Use varying saturations and tones of a classic neutral (in this case, taupe) to add dimension to decor.

6. A light-hued, sheer runner paired with a natural surface acts as a texture rather than a color, creating layers of interest.

7. White, as a textured table linen or used sparingly on napkins or chair sashes, lends a clean, modern finish.

Modern Black & White Wedding at Hotel ZaZa by Adam Nyholt

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

This week, as all of us take shelter from the unprecedented deluge of Hurricane Harvey, and take stock of everything that is dear and precious to us, we will be sharing some of our favorite weddings of the last few years. If you need an escape, a moment of peace, a reminder of the importance of family, friends and, above all, love, please settle in, snuggle down and join us. And once the storm clouds clear, and the water recedes, let us know what we can do to help you. We are all in this together. #BeStrongHouston #LoveConquersAll

Houston bride Rozlind wanted her wedding to be a fabulous party that still had a warm, inviting feeling. From the black and white decor, to the all-white flowers, and romantic candlelit ballroom at Hotel ZaZa, Rozlind and Matthew’s wedding was the definition of modern glam. If you think all of this sounds glamorous, just wait till you see Rozlind’s gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown and Nicholas Kirkwood peep-toe lace heels! Thanks, Adam Nyholt, for the beautiful photos and congrats to the newlyweds!

Wedding Floral Inspiration for Every Season by TnT Events

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

Trish Nguyen, Houston wedding decorator, florist and founder of TNT Events, has an impeccable eye for detail and flair for florals. She has pulled off everything from royal-inspired weddings, complete with plush seating and luxurious lighting and draping, to rustically romantic outdoor ceremonies, to oh-so-modern affairs with lucite chairs and over-the-top floral arrangements all within a reasonable price point.

Because of Trish’s stellar taste and knack for all things design and decor, we asked her to share with us four floral design inspirations from every season. Take a peek below and let those ideas blossom!

Winter: We love the subtle blue hues of these Dusty Miller leaves, mixed with large white petals and smaller green accents in TNT’s winter floral display! This look says elegance with a hint of eclectic, rustic charm. The boutonnière on the left also perfects the use of natural elements in a masculine look.

Spring: Nothing shouts springtime like a dash of bold, bright colors. The mix of hot pink blooms, blush roses and eclectic greenery is the perfect combination for brides who want their wedding day look to really pop!

Summer: A softer look, complete with pink and peach garden roses, accented by beautiful baby’s breath makes for the most romantic of summer looks. Houston brides might want to stay away from the Texas heat outside, but there’s no reason they can’t have a lush flower display in hand like this one from TNT!

Fall: As the colors change throughout the rest of the country (not so much in Houston), fall floral arrangements follow suit. We love the warm orange and yellows on display here, with the adorable purple succulent that ties the whole look together to create something truly unique! This look is perfect for the less traditional of brides, looking to push the envelope, but remain elegant.

Like what you see? Have some ideas in bloom? Schedule a consultation with TNT Events today! And don’t forget to tell Trish you heard about her on the Houston Wedding Blog!
