Crafting an Eerie Tablescape: Snow White and the Enchanted Dark Forest

Crafting an Eerie Tablescape: Snow White and the Enchanted Dark Forest

This childhood-inspired dark tablescape makes "spooky" look beautiful and enchanting.

By Gloria Di Felice

 

Pulling from the wonders of my childhood mind, this wedding and event inspiration piece was a captivating project. When trying to put together a tablescape that is graceful as much as it is eerie, one has to incorporate delicate textures, shapes, patterns and colours with sharper ones in a harmonious way. The darker side of a well-loved fairy tale was accentuated in this photo shoot to bring about an atmosphere much more suited to the stories of the Brothers Grimm - but with a light sprinkle of the cartoonish story we grew up to know and adore.

Pristine and whimsical china was paired with gold accents, baroque goblets, dark candles and shadowy, vibrant colours. Red delicious apples adorned the table with frilly floral ornaments and wiry branches protruded from a sea of flowers like arms with a mind of their own. From the sidelines, Snow White and her seven dwarves looked on with a sense of bewilderment.
