It’s not always what’s on top, but what’s underneath, that really counts. Event planner and floral designer Chris Hessney of Hessney & Co. found the perfect creative solution to ensure your floral décor remains part of the table at family-style weddings.
Family-style meal service has quickly become one of the most popular ways to entertain, both at pre-wedding events and on the big day. While passing plates at the table allows for more interaction amongst guests (and easier conversation!), event and floral designers, like Chris Hessney of Hessney & Co., are tasked with finding creative solutions that allow for décor and food to be displayed on the table together. Hessney’s ingenious solution? To design a custom clear glass table with flowers arranged inside two square legs, captured here by Erik Ekroth Photography.
With help from wedding planner Laura Remmert Events and impeccable, seasonally-focused food from Union Square Events, Hessney and his arsenal of New York wedding pros are showing couples a new way to set their spring table. Paired with a seasonal menu and warm-weather colors, we think it’s perfect for an upcoming bridal shower or your spring nuptials.
Good to Grow
Hessney filled the base of each table with spring-inspired flowers, arranged to look as if they were growing straight out of the grass. A mix of orange and yellow poppies, tulips, orchids, chamomile, and fiddle-head ferns popped against local greenery.
