12 Days of Christmas Tabletops | 8 Maids a Milking

Dec 14, 2017 | Haus 820, Styled Shoots

A modern minimalist farmhouse style with a black and white color palette including natural colors and textures. The perfect look for 8 Maids a Milking in our 12 Days of Christmas Tabletops series.

We loved incorporating elements that can often seem very rustic and instead they gave a beautiful unexpected modern style that is elegant and sleek. We’re excited to share the details from Treasury Rentals and Ashton Events as they walk us through the design choices that were captured by Jenna Nicole Photography. As featured in the Every Last Detail Blog.

Laura from Ashton Events:

“This look quickly became one of our favorites as we look back on many of the tables we created. Using elements and textures that seem so unexpected with a modern style was a fun way for us to create something outside of the box, and stretch our creativity. For the centerpiece, we used a mix of cream roses and buttery golden brown blooms, cotton, and dried babies breath in a low, narrow arrangement. Choosing a black ceramic container allowed for a strong contrast with the blooms, and tied together the black details in the table settings. Creating a garland runner around the centerpiece with delicate branches allowed us to make the table feel full, but stick with the minimal style for the design.”

Emily from Treasury Rentals:

“Creating this design, we knew we wanted to do a nod to a farmhouse style along with the contrast of the black and white color palette as we associate the theme with farm style and the colors of a characterized maid costume, but wanted to create something unique and special. We absolutely loved playing with the contrast for this tabletop style. Pairing our driftwood chargers with black stoneware and flatware, and selecting a sleek style smokey gray glass allowed us to create some drama with the setting. By keeping the main elements monochromatic, it played well with the minimal style, and the charger pulled together some of the colors and natural textures found in both the linen from Nuage Designs, Inc. and Laura’s centerpiece design. A knotted white napkin placed on the setting helped completed the look creating contrast and balance that worked perfectly with the style.”
