Vibrant, unique, sophisticated and fun – if these words describe your dream wedding celebration, then take a look at these gorgeous ideas for a peacock themed wedding.
We’re building this flamboyant, but elegant theme on our fair trade, 100% cotton Dance O Peacock table linens. Each piece – round tablecloths, rectangular tablecloths, runners and dinner napkins – is hand printed in layer upon layer of color. You’ll have cobalt, turquoise, ochre and sage to play off of as you create your tables.
Consider using an extra long Dance O Peacock tablecloth (120×70) at the Bridal Party table, and coordinating round tablecloths around the room. A runner down the center of a dessert or guest registry table is another lovely tie-in.
There’s no doubt that peacocks like to be noticed… so create a noticeable (and memorable) table for your guests with a few bold basics. Mary Elizabeth Arts specializes in wedding accoutrements…her peacock glassware would be amazing for the Briday Party, and make great take home gifts for them as well!
Koyal is a catering wholesaler, and they provide a range of blue chargers that would just sparkle at all the tables – personally, I like the idea of mixing the shades of blue from table to table.
Finally, in a simple but glamourous treatment from Wedding Bee, we see a gold charger (perfect with the ochre of Dance O Peacock) topped with a pocket folded napkin and a shimmering feather. So pretty!
Honestly, you just can’t go wrong decorating around a peacock theme. Everything just works! The colors, the textures, the glamorous sense… This is especially true when it comes to complementary flower arrangements and centerpieces. While the 1st and 3rd examples use peacock feathers and elements of bold color, by basing the arrangement on a neutral (greenery in the first, white callas in the 3rd) they remain absolutely elegant, and never over the top.
My personal favorite, however, is the 2nd example – simple, natural, gorgeous Palm Fronds. The champagne flute style vessel is wonderful too. Love it!
Now here’s where I really start to get excited! 🙂 Yes! Beautiful and edible!! Perfect. I chose these particular peacock themed cakes because while colorful and glamourous, they each have a clean, fresh, graphic look – similar to the look and colors of our foundation linens, Dance O Peacock. I truly don’t have a favorite here – I am sure that no matter which cake you pick, you’ll have “oohs” and “aaahs” from all your guests!
It’s nice to leave your guests with a simple, useful thank-you and reminder of your celebration. Here are a few to consider…
- A hand printed muslin bag, which you could fill with a unique candy or nut treat from a favorite local merchant.
- Seed packets, for flowers or trees, make a wonderful favor – truly a gift that grows in beauty.
- A personalized treat! These are particularly nice if you have children at your reception. (Although, adults will probably want one too…)
If you’re considering Dance O Peacock table linens for your celebration, I recommend that you purchase a swatch. These are generously sized and reasonably priced – you’ll be able to see the colors exactly as they are, and get a feel for the high quality of the cotton.
A wonderful benefit of purchasing at least some of the linens for your wedding is that they then become top-notch keepsakes for the bride and groom, close family members and close friends. You’ll be able to entertain for years with these beautiful linens, and each time hold a special memory of the day that started your life together.
