Prepare to be inspired as we share 5 top wedding reception styling tips to transform your day. From your tables and decor, to your food and drink, Rocket Food predict the hottest ideas for 2019…
Bringing nature indoors
Use our seasonal British plants with roots, fragrance and native beauty. From tangled foliage and fresh greenery to potted herbs incorporated with dried poppy heads, cotton branch, or willow – all these ingredients make for a gorgeous table centre or canapé tray decoration.
When it comes to pantones and colour palettes, in 2019, don’t be afraid to break the mould. Pantone’s colour of the year ‘Living Coral’ is currently very popular, but why not make a bold statement with teals, vivid greens, pinks and canary yellows?! We’ve seen the beige, whites and pale pinks but this year, we need a more colourful swing!
When planning a Rocket wedding we take time to get to know the couple and understand their personalities, so that the events team can tell their love story through the journey of the party. It is important to reflect the couple’s personalities in the finer details such as menu designs, flowers from special locations or to invoke memories with colour palettes, charger plates, napkin rings, fragrance, party favours etc.
Let’s eat cake
Couples are moving away from having one huge cake that likely goes uneaten. Instead our Head of Pastry creates wonders with dessert stalls. A beautifully designed patisserie boutique is guaranteed to wow guests. Why not pair the mini desserts with a dessert cocktail to keep the party going?
Over-the-top floral arrangements are out this year. We’re opting for more sustainable and subtle table centres: low florals are essential for maximum fun and conversations. We love to incorporated different shapes of low bud vases with a ‘jumping’ mismatch of seasonal and fragrant flowers. These look stunning on printed linen runners (use the reverse of the fabric) mixed with in-season foliage.
