Pretty in Pinks

Martha Stewart Weddings - - THE PALETTE -

These hues are of­ten as­so­ci­ated with tra­di­tional wed­dings and fussy ta­blescapes. But this set­ting takes the pal­ette in a de­sign-for­ward di­rec­tion with clean, modern serve­ware and translu­cent es­cort cards, made by plac­ing three-inch squares of acrylic atop printed cards. Have fu­ture meals in mind when plot­ting your dé­cor—pur­chas­ing some in­ex­pen­sive pieces may cost the same (or less) than rentals, and you’ll be able to keep them. Case in point: These pink salad plates and flat­ware can grace gar­den par­ties for years to come.

THE DETAILS: Br­rch flow­ers, br­rch.com. “Be­lay” pink 7" salad plate, $6; and “451” 20-piece flat­ware set, $50, cb2.com.

Give your cen­ter­piece an in­stant boost by ad­ding veg­etable-based food col­or­ing to wa­ter in a clear glass vase. SPLASH OF COLOR
