A Gold Rush

The inspiration for today’s blog came from a very unlikely source….. the humble fork! I recently stumbled across a beautiful gold fork and got to thinking all things ‘gold’.  My gold crush intensified when I spotted Penelope Cruz in that fabulous sparkly L’Wren Scott gown she wore to the Bond premiere and I literally had to hold myself back from rushing out and spending my every last penny on golden treats!!

Gold evokes thoughts of luxury, glamour and opulence; think the Hall or Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles or the magnificent Palaces of St. Petersburg.  So why not add a little bit of this glamour and sparkle to your wedding day?  Even the simplest tablescape could be enhanced by replacing regular silverware with beautiful warm gold cutlery.

Add some gold frosted tea light holders, gold trimmed glassware and candles and you are well on your way to creating a stunning sophisticated setting.  Keep a clean contemporary feel by adding white linens and white flowers; team with black, red or burgundy for a dark and elegant theme or create a fresh yet grown up feel with pops of teal, orange or pink.

Of course if you want the ultimate sparkle, just add more gold!
