Confetti.co.uk Masterclass #StyleItLikeAPro

Confetti.co.uk masterclass

On Tuesday I attended Confetti.co.uk #StyleItLikeAPro event, a masterclass on how to style the perfect wedding table display.

Confetti.co.uk is the place to go for wedding ideas, planning and advice so I knew I would be learning all the styling trade secrets from a team who really knows their stuff! 

The masterclass was held at the stylish luxury hotel, the Lowry Hotel in Manchester. After meeting the lovely team at Confetti and other bloggers, we chatted over chilled lemonade, miniature fish and chips and tasty macaroons.

Tasty snacks!

Then we were given the lowdown on the table displays. There were two beautiful tables each decorated with  distinctive themes: rustic and vintage. Confetti.co.uk shared their top three tips to consider when styling your table:

Texture: Incorporate different textures and patterns to add to your theme for example the material lace can soften the look of your display.
Height: It's important to have a variety of shape and sizes, so use props like candle sticks, boxes or table plans to create height to your table.
Details: Get creative by adding different details like favour bags, candle holders, ring boxes (rather than pillows) or cake toppers.

Rustic themed table

The rustic themed table display was full of textures, layers and lots of charming do-it-yourself details. I loved the lace draw string favour bag, a good alternative to the popular organza favour bags and compliments the rustic theme well. I also really liked the vintage inspired wooden wedding ring box, designed to carry both wedding rings and can easily slip into an inside the groom's pocket (so he won't loose it!) It's these small details that made the rustic table look so perfectly styled.

 Vintage themed table

The vintage display table incorporated a mixture of antique elegance and modern sophistication. I loved the use of romantic colours, the dark red and pink flowers completed the vintage inspired look.  I also liked the use of repurposing items and using them in different ways, for example the shelf was used for height as a prop and invitations displayed inside.

We then had the opportunity to style a table ourselves! Here was the table I helped design along with another blogger using all the tips we had learned that day:

 Our display table

We used the white stands and wooden box with vintage cream roses to create height to our table, the white patterned candle holders to demonstrate texture and pattern and LOVE plates and miniature glass bell jars to add detail to our table.

I really enjoyed the #StyleItLikeAPro masterclass and learned so many useful  techniques and top tips on styling wedding tables. The best part was knowing I could use these tips for styling and decorating any event and not just weddings!
