A Christmas Table – Copper and Cotton

By December 9, 2015 One Comment

We love the holidays, and Christmas is really our numero uno!  I mean, just the thought of Christmas makes us all giddy!  So naturally creating a gorgeous Christmas table and party was a high priority for us this season, and with the help of a few of our friends we made it happen!!

This year we were inspired by a gorgeous cotton wreath we saw on our trip to Ojai earlier this Fall, it got us thinking about Christmas and how cotton is such a pretty natural element that really doesn’t get used enough!  Then we thought, why not combine something so natural with our favorite metallic, copper, and voila!  This lovely table was born!!

We really are in love with how it turned out, and the mixture of the simple whites with the greenery and metallics really sets the tone for a cozy table that’s just asking for the Christmas spotlight!!  Get ready for some photo overload… There were so many different elements to this shoot and so many great photos that we couldn’t help ourselves!

You can see more of this shoot on Green Wedding Shoes later today!!
