Style It Like a Pro

If you are following me on Twitter you might already know that I have just moved to London this week. For my first London blogging event, Confetti, UK's leading bridal website, invited me to the most beautiful wedding decoration styling masterclass.

The event was meant to start at 12, but we only got called in after 1 pm. This gave us more than enough to get to know all about the other bloggers as we waited in the lobby.

When we finally stepped into the room, everything was perfect. From the layout of the room, to the decoration, and even the drinks and snacks table, everything was styled to perfection - an instant giveaway that these girls are really styling pros.

After snapping a few pictures, we sat down for our masterclass. where we learned how to style and decorate not only for weddings, but for any sort of party, or even for around the house.

The first step is to come up with a theme or a color scheme and stick to it with all the pieces you pick.

Secondly, we learned to add height, details, and texture to our pieces. We were shown three decorations with very different themes - industrial, vintage, and woodland - but all incorporating these styling tips.

We then explored alternatives, such as mixing themes. The trick is to pick one theme as your main one and add accents and details from another theme. It is still important to keep to the same color palette throughout themes.

Another great trend that was pointed out is to re-purpose items. We saw aisle runners as tablecloths and as photo booth backdrops, cake toppers as centerpiece decoration details, and cupcake holders as flower holders.
