Our creative team at The Huestudio + Company loves to design and style unique + striking tablescapes.
To celebrate 2016, delight in some of our event favorites, along with unique ideas and offerings to create and style your own spectacular holiday table!
Set festive moods. Start conversations. Share your Style.
Color! We are daily inspired by color + love designing and styling events with unexpected colors to create distinctive guest experiences. We often think non-traditional, unique and oh, so different! The colors of red and green do not always have to represent “holiday”. Be bold. Be bright. Choose colors!
Select a color inspiration from a favorite linen, a piece of heirloom china or a sprig of holly or winter berries. Allow a single item to guide you to a magnificent tablescape creation! When all else fails, select pristine white or ivory. We love this color as it beautifully and seamlessly complements for a clean, crisp elegant look. #CircleOfColors
Since early 2013, our team has selected a spotlight color to feature in our monthly Circle of Colors newsletters. View our color selections and all archived newsletters.
Centerpieces! We believe unique and interesting vessels containing gorgeous blooms and foliage are essential in creating innovative centerpieces. Our centerpieces are designed consciously to ensure attending guests can see the person opposite them, are not overly high, incorporate color, texture and pattern, and are respectful and balanced within the overall tablescape space.
We love partnering with preferred partners FlowersFlowers, The Flower Studio and Fleur de lis Florist to envision distinctive floral masterpieces that clients adore!
Candles! The warmth, elegance and glow of candles are inviting and set a fun, romantic tone. With varying options of votives, tapers, pillars and floating, among others, candles elevate and brighten all event experiences. As Buddha stated, “Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
Share and spread candle happiness with Nicolet Candle Company + Flicker Handcrafted Soy Candles, two of our preferred partners this holiday season! We love their hand-crafted artistry, distinctive scents and sustainable packaging! #CandleLove
Combinations! We often like to “mix it up” with colorful mix-and-match vintage finds using a solid, coordinating base. Blending contemporary, modern and funky pieces with heirloom keepsakes generates conversations among attending guests while creating tablescape ‘marriages’ that are playful and festive. Tuck a twig, branch or section of bark into a vintage napkin ring. Hand-tie luscious ribbons on bundles of fresh herbs to enhance place settings with fragrant scents. Expand your imagination to assemble interesting and personal tablescapes utilizing discarded finds + fresh offerings gathered and plucked from brisk garden walks. #MixItUp
Creations! As artisans of exquisitely-curated event experiences™, we regularly collaborate with select preferred partners to design + create custom creations and delightful guest favors for each setting.
