Hi Something Turquoise readers, it’s Lauren, from Undeclared Panache, back again with another fabulous “Steal this Style” post. Today, I am showing you how to recreate a glittery sweetheart table, part of this beautiful, feminine wedding found on Ruffled.
I hail from Michigan, where the head table seems to be the norm at weddings, so the concept of the sweetheart table is fairly new to me. The thought of having an intimate dining experience with your new husband, among all your friends and family is really quite awesome. And beyond that, from a decor perspective, I love the sweetheart table. Because it’s a much smaller table, you can really make a statement with not very much and, this is an area that’s sure to be photographed over and over again.
To recreate this look you’ll need to start with a few beautifully curated vases and compotes. I searched “vintage glass compote” on Etsy to find the blue and amethyst stunners below. You can find mercury glass all over, but as a simple cost-saving alternative, you could also find cheap vases and make your own by following this tutorial. Those statement pieces combined with some simple flowers and the sequin tablecloth will be all the “wow” you need. The thing I love most about this specific table is that the punch doesn’t come from fancy place settings, it comes from the statement sequin tablecloth, and it also doesn’t come from the flowers, though very beautiful, it comes from the special vessels they are displayed in. This bride and groom went the extra step of renting a wing-backed love-seat to complement finish the look.

ArtCarved designs beautifully elegant, high quality engagement rings and wedding bands. It’s a brand that truly celebrates the way you live and love, from the big moments, to the small moments and all of the moments in between. To encourage all of us to “live for the moments”, ArtCarved created a brand new, heart warming campaign featuring a series of video episodes that share two real couples’ personal love and life moments. Today we are introducing you to Matt & Tavia and Dane & Meg… one couple married for some time and the other recently married; both absolutely darling. From their first kiss and proposal, to daily love notes and nicknames – we are going to get to hear it all!
ArtCarved already has a few of these darling videos up on their Facebook page and the one about Dane & Meg slow dancing is my favorite – it’s such a great idea! They will continue to share these sweet video shorts, every other week on Monday and Wednesday afternoons through the end of the year. Below is a teaser clip to introduce these love birds and get you excited to follow their different journeys through love…
