- They help to enhance your theme.
- They are focal points for your photographer and your guests to get snap-happy.
- They liven up the otherwise administrative (ahem…boring) areas of an event (reception table, seating arrangements, card box)
If you’re not addicted to Pinterest like us, fear not - creating a vignette doesn’t have to be a daunting task!
Theme - Even if you’re not committing to a full fledged theme (not everybody has the time, money or willpower to pull off Parisian Evening by the Lake) think of a simple look you’d like to have for your event. Rustic chic? Yacht-club prep? Morrocan-boho? Having a theme can make curating your vignette much easier.
Curating - The possibilities are endless for decor and you can easily end up with a very random mish mash of paraphernalia cluttering up your space. Use your theme as a way to help curate which pieces will really add aesthetic value to the vignette.
Levels - A great way to draw the eye in is to incorporate different levels into your vignette. Have some pieces that you can stack up high, and move things to the back and forefront of your table to create dimension.
Textures - Everything will seem much more interesting if there are various textures interspersed throughout. Mix the shiny and glossy amongst the fuzzy and furry. Have some rough burlap against some smooth stone. Showing a variety of textures is especially key when your colour scheme is fairly monochromatic.
