Chevrons can go beyond decor and apparel to even adding impact to your dessert choices. Whether it be a simple accent on your cake, a full statement installation or even a garnish on your cupcakes, the design transcends across basically every element of your event!
For an event, chevrons are best used as accents because they are so visually strong in combining texture and color. This way, they complement a larger theme without drawing so much attention that the pattern ultimately becomes overwhelming.
Here’s an easy DIY option for a handheld fan - take tongue-depressors and insert them into cardboard wrapped in fabric and voila! What’s great about this is that you’re able to bring pattern/texture/theme into play, since you’re totally in control.
I could summarize Carlos Miele’s resort collection in three words - color, texture, pattern. Materials ranged from silk/chiffon to satin with heavy beading, and no silhouette was off limits. In total, his collection provides a ton of options to get you red carpet (or wedding guest) ready - it’s all about the craftsmanship behind each piece which makes them so special.
Now let’s talk reception - all of your paper goods and table settings help you bring your theme to life. Everything from the pattern on your invitation, to the lettering on your escort cards, to the gilded menu and place setting need to fall within your color palette and feel art deco.
Another stand out option for the bride to be is this Aztec inspired mini. The pattern draws the eye and the cut is slimming - a win/win! Plus, it’s a great alternative to sequins.
When table design is on the simple side, using a strong mix of texture can bring life to your reception setting. I love the combination of the woven charger, the patterned napkin and the velvet ribbon. Sticking to the pre-defined color scheme is key to success in this as well - adding new colors in with this much texture would add too many variables.
Grey and yellow color schemes are wildly popular as of late, so I wanted to make sure to include a table setting that featured just that. This couple has used layering effects to bring their color theme into the eating experience. The pearl accents on the charger bring a sheen to the table setting and the patterned napkin wrap brings pop to the neutral plates. Setting a yellow flower next to the grey menu continues the theme, bringing the theme around full circle.
This is a very simple and sweet idea that can work all year round, but I like the idea of using bright colors in the summer season. Use fabric covered pins in varying patterns with accent colors to pin escort cards to a pin board covered in solid fabric or fabric that has a muted pattern.
If you’re going for a vintage feel, pinning cards to a piece of colorful/patterned fabric situated in a vintage frame is a simple way to guide the day. Plus, as guests take their escort cards, the underlying pattern is revealed, which adds to the decor for the remainder of the evening.
