All Things Bright and Beautiful

A rise in trend of beautiful bright, clashing colours has recently been appearing on our favourite social media platform, Pinterest. Using bright colours can lift any room, inject real personality and can often add impact to any wedding venue.


Flowers can be a great point to start a colour scheme with colours that complement each other in nature will, of course, look fabulous in decor too, as previously discussed in our spring wedding flower blog.
The Velvet Daisy, based in Newton Ferrers, Devon, recently produced some stunning bright floral displays incorporating brightly coloured pom poms and ribbons in bouquets and buttonholes to create a zing, really catching the eye.

Table Settings

Within the table setting, you can use colour through a variety of different elements. From decorating the tables in gorgeous bright blooms, using coloured glassware and chinaware or bold print table linen. Your florist can help you know what colour combinations look fantastic together and the style of flowers which will compliment your table best.

Cakes too are a fabulous way to inject colour into your wedding day, Ombre icing or brightly coloured sugar icing pieces can make a real impact. Use flowers, sweets, plastic typography or even fun objects to make your cake take centre stage.
Jennifer Wells from Edible Essence Cake Art, based in Devon, recently created a beautiful cake for one of our weddings here at Shilstone House incorporating an impressive array of bright colours. Jennifer personalised the cake to the bride and groom’s interests. Jennifer used mini basketballs (groom’s passion) knitting balls and needles (brides hobby) and mini chocolate Eiffel Towers as the couple met in Paris creating a lovely love story within a cake.
