Purple and green is such a stunning and vibrant combination for wedding decor and for wedding colors, as shown in this fabulous purple and green table setting. The two colors really pop off one another and make you feel energized. These are great colors for a spring or summer wedding , but also work fantastically for receptions at any time of year. In fact, purple and green has become a very stylish color scheme for Christmas decor as of late (and looks amazing, by the way), proving that it works all year round.
Jewel tones look amazing and elegant when used for table decor at a wedding reception, as seen here. When what you want is a rich, opulent look, jewel tones combined with fine fabrics and interesting textures will get the job done. And once again, its that uber-popular purple and green color scheme that is so HOT for weddings right now.
To put this look together for yourself, it all starts with a green rayon textured table cover, with matching pleated to-the-floor table skirting. Masses of large fabric roses in lime green, forest green and burnt yellow and pinned to the top edge of the side of the table to create a textured border that offers some fabulous visual interest. The texture really contributes big-time to the opulent, lavish look.
To give this design some real punch, rich purple rayon chair covers dress up the chairs and offer some exciting contrast against the green table scape. A fantastic crystal chair buckle adorns the back of the chair right above the chair skirt, proving that no detail has been overlooked at this event.
The table top itself is dressed up with flowers in purples and greens, votive candles in small amber frosted votive cups, and little grapevine balls spray painted with pearlized lime green paint and silver paint. When its all pulled together, the finished product is extraordinary. When guests arrive, one thing will immediately be clear, something very special will be happening here….
These eye-popping purple and green wedding tables demonstrate what a fabulous option this combination is for wedding decor – and for wedding colors. [Photo: Party City]. A purple and green color scheme is energizing, exciting, and has definite feel good factor, as we at SuperWeddings call it, like some of the other wedding colors we’ve highlighted recently. We LOVE wedding decor in colors with feel good factor! They make a reception feel as wedding receptions should feel!
Here, beautiful purple table coversmade of a shimmery fabric give the reception tables a rich and regal look. Combined with lime green table settings (place mats and plates), the table decor really POPs!
The centerpiece combines flowers and foliage of green and purple in a low, clear glass square vase to carry for the color scheme even further. Five round clear glass votive holders with white candles are positioned around the floral centerpieces to broaden the design further.
A few years back, purple and lime was one of THE hottest combinations for wedding decor, and while it may no longer be the ‘wedding color scheme of the year’, its still an amazing palette!
Above, a purple and green wedding place setting at a wedding reception (to be exact, its lavender and lime). A white dinner plate is set on a gold charger. The lavender linen napkin is folded lengthwise and positioned beneath the dinner plate, so that it drapes down over the charger plate, and hangs over the edge of the table. A white menu card with lime edging lies in the center of the dinner plate, and positioned on top of that – a large square lime place card featuring a pink band across the center upon which the guest’s name is written.
