Bold accents pop against white table linens, chairs, and plates. The inspiration for this table setting -- a beautiful sheet of wrapping paper -- is showcased at the center; we wrapped its edges with cotton ribbon (secured with double-sided tape) to give it a finished look.

Around the napkins, strips of aqua paper emblazoned with red calligraphy form place cards. Millinery birds, reminiscent of the birds on the paper, perch on top (their feet are secured to the paper band with adhesive dots).

In the centerpiece, vibrant red carnations, arranged in a tight dome, float above a porcelain compote tied with a crimson silk dupioni bow.

I am trying to do the wrapping paper, but I cannot figure out how to do the ribbon around the corners to make it look nice. Any suggestions???

I love this table setting and these colors, but if I chose to use these colors, what would my bridesmaids wear? Red?

This paper is really hard to find...I did get some in a peper store onlline that is located in Mi. You can make 2 mats from one sheet, which is about $8 a sheet. Its bookbinding paper, not wrapping paper. Nice and thick.
