The Crystal Clear Event: Modern Rustic

There were so many beautiful tablescapes at The Crystal Clear Event, hosted by Waterford Event Rentals, that I decided to split my feature into three segments. Today is all about modern rustic.

I know modern rustic might sound contradictory, but these tablescapes are far different from the vintage rustic look of mason jars, burlap, and lace that we've seen so much over the past few years.

First, we have the luxurious Tuscan pergola designed by Palette of Petals. They were inspired to combine warm Tuscan colors with an assortment of lanterns, vintage glassware, and copper votives. And they incorporated the very popular ombre look in a fresh and unique way.

Antonia Christianson Events created a rustic but glamorous lodge look for their table. They gave a nod to historic frontiersmen with their invitation suite and place cards and Blue Steel Lighting created the custom antler pendants to complete the western theme.

Emily Weddings designed a tablescape that paired industrial and rustic components with the perfect amount of gold and sequins. Blue Steel Lighting created a showstopping chandelier to complete the theme of the tablescape: Come Away with Us.
