It’s summer! My favorite season! “Put on a great dress and be a fun wedding guest” season! Or, if you’re planning a wedding, it’s “Wear an amazing bridal dress and throw a fabulous party” season! If you’re doing the latter, let’s talk about your plans for that amazing party! Cuz I’m thinking you’ve figured out your whole dress situation already. A prelude to any great meal starts with an inviting table. Make your guests want to sit down at a sumptuous-looking table and they’ll already be dying for the food to arrive. We’ve got some beautiful wedding table settings to share this week to give you some ideas. We’re showing off colorful linens, subtle patterns, gold accents and some pretty gorgeous jewels that your guests might just want to wear home — even though they’re napkin rings. And as the photo caption says, I freaking LOVE them! Don’t you?

If you’ve been one of my loyal blog followers, you know that we publish these image roundups weekly. We feature a particular event for a particular client so you can go deep on the particular theme. If you know what’s up, skip this part. New visitors, take a look below…
In case you missed it, here’s what we’re doing, mentioned in the first blog. (And if you already know what’s going on, skip to the first photo!) Every day we’re posting event photos & inspiration to my Instagram page to give you ideas for your own events. And, of course, to encourage you to hire yours truly, one of the top wedding planners in Los Angeles, for your next soirée! In terms of format, we’re trying to capitalize on the whole hashtag calendar world and take advantage of #WeddingWednesday (#WW) and #ThrowbackThursday (#TBT) by posting wedding photos and cool stuff we’ve done on Wednesdays and on Thursdays, harkening back to a past client’s event, be it a celebrity, or just one of us tastemakers.
Favorite Event Photos and Inspiration – Monday:
Now this is a table I’d want to sit at! I might even stake out the perfect seat by strategically placing my cute little clutch on my chair, way early in the party! Because who wouldn’t want to be at this table? The gold chairs and accents paired with the sublte gold pattern on the tablecloth … bellissimo!
Favorite Event Photos and Inspiration – Tuesday:
Put a ring on it! I mean, this is a wedding after all. Or it could just be that you think everything looks better with a cocktail ring. A cocktail ring napkin ring is a stylish way to add some sparkle to your table. Only way it could look better is if there was an actual cocktail sitting there too!
Favorite Event Photos and Inspiration – Wednesday:
It’s a nice day for a white wedding. Or so says Billy Idol. Sometimes, white on white is the perfect way to go, especially if you’re in an outdoor setting with lots of color around you. Like many fine restaurants do, you can also highlight the food you’re serving by using white as a backdrop on your table. Bon appetit! Happy #WeddingWednesday!
Favorite Event Photos and Inspiration – Thursday:
Looking to glam up your wedding table settings? Try gold-rimmed goblets like these! So simple, yet so pretty. They’re an easy way to put some shimmer and shine at every seat! #TBT
Favorite Event Photos and Inspiration – Friday:
Let’s go for gold! I just love these gold-hued chargers. Combined with gold-handled cutlery, gold-rimmed goblets, the rings, the tablecloth… the look is so perfectly golden! #TGIF
Favorite Event Photos and Inspiration – Saturday:
Don’t be afraid of color when it comes to your wedding table settings. If you like purple, then damn girl, have your purple! And lots of it. After you layer various shades and fabrics, add some flowers and cool chair back covers, even a small table like this will look impressive.
