I had so much fun with our rehearsal dinner tablescape and really leaned into the Nantucket setting. I was inspired by the blue hydrangeas that pop up all over the island in the summer and decided on a classic blue + white color scheme. The dinner took place in the backyard of a private home – and luckily the rain held off until the very end! It was a gorgeous evening.
Our Rehearsal Dinner Table
Rehearsal Dinner Tablescape
I worked with our event designer and wedding planner; Tracy Taylor Ward, to source the Ikat tablecloth from La Tavola. We rented simple white plates and silverware from a local rental company; Placesetters, as well as natural rattan placemats from Event Rental Co. I actually found these identical placemats right after the wedding and purchased them for future dinner parties!
For the rest of the tablescape, I sourced and brought my own special pieces from home – including these custom Etsy monogrammed napkins, Ralph Lauren hurricane lamps, and hand painted custom menus I designed with Hudson Ink. It was so incredible to see all of the elements come together! Dawn from Soiree Floral nailed the flowers – and did a really elegant mix of hydrangeas and delphinium. We used a mix of tall and short vases she had to create a layered look. The table felt coastal, summery, relaxed, and classic!
