Your summer soirée, decorated in hues of gold, blue and white, will exude luxury, sophistication and elegance. Think crisp white tablecloths and table napkins, cut crystal glassware, chic gold cutlery, and a profusion of elegant white floral arrangements. Then select blue plate ware and sit it on stunning gold charger plates, print your place cards in blue ink, and wrap your napkins with pretty blue ribbon.

Decorate your tables with white candles, and we suggest lots and lots of candles, from little tea light candles in cut crystal votive holders, to elegant white taper candles sitting majestically in gold candlestick holders. Then, perfect your table settings by seating your guests on elegant gold Chiavari chairs, which are also known as Tiffany chairs.

This theme lends itself to an evening wedding celebration and would work beautifully outside, under the stars, on a balmy summer’s evening. And, should your location allow, place all tables beside a swimming pool for the ultimate theme-perfect event. Hang fairy lights or lanterns above the tables and place floating candles in the swimming pool. Around the edge of the pool decorate with large round pillar candles for a very chic effect.

And, don’t forget to add a touch of gold in all of the right places: gold initials on your cake, gold typography on your stationery suite, chocolates wrapped in gold foil, a gold pen to sign your marriage certificate, and, of course… gold wedding rings! Finally, select wine and champagne bottles for their elegant gold labels to complement your theme and you are ready to enjoy a lavish wedding reception that your guests will love.
