Langver­wagt is a his­toric farm with at­mo­spheric her­itage build­ings, mak­ing it the ideal set­ting for this look. The ta­ble needs to feel ef­fort­lessly el­e­gant, as if you’ve been in­vited to a French coun­try chateau for this cel­e­bra­tion. (Al­most as if ev­ery­one in the vil­lage had ral­lied and lent all their best fam­ily crys­tal, flat­ware and can­dle­sticks to help the cou­ple celebrate among those who had watched them grow up!) The lighter coloured linen serves as a great back­drop for the golden cut­lery and can­dle­sticks as well as the warm red, peach and coral flow­ers. Hints of mint and deep pur­ple add some drama to the look, while the clear Vic­to­ria chairs add a con­tem­po­rary feel and are another nod to the French theme. (As are the nap­kins, which are folded in a tra­di­tional French pleat!) Ex­tra-large ta­ble (supplied by venue) Langver­wagt. Stone linen table­cloth (R119,70 each to hire*), French run­ner (R36,48 each to hire*), cherry red nap­kins (R4,90 each to hire*) The Ta­ble Cloth Hir­ing Com­pany. *All prices ex­clude de­liv­ery and col­lec­tion and prices vary ac­cord­ing to re­gion.
