Colour Highlight: 5 Ways to Use Terracotta on your Wedding Day

We are loving the recent terracotta and desert tones trend that has been emerging, inspired by the colours of the earth. 

Below we’ve suggested 5 simple ways that you can use the terracotta colour as a highlight on your wedding day reception tables. From the tables to the bouquet, it doesn’t have to be complicated.

A great way to incorporate a highlight colour into any wedding colour scheme is to think about the napkin you are using on the tables. You can choose a colour out of your bouquet, the bridesmaid palette or a colour you want to stand out. It will bring together all the other items on the table and give your table the wow factor!

We have a few napkin colours available that would look amazing to incorporate a touch a terracotta into your table styling.

  1. MOROCCAN ORANGE – 100% LINEN NAPKINS
  2. DESERT ROSE – 100% LINEN NAPKINS
  3. RUST BROWN – 100% LINEN NAPKINS
  4. MUSTARD YELLOW – 100% LINEN NAPKINS

Roses come in all kinds of shades today, from dusty pinks, pale peaches and also terracotta! Have a couple of terracotta rose stems springing out of the bouquet or on the tables. Combine with white, pale pinks and dried blooms.

THE TABLE MENUS

If you want to keep your floral combinations simple, why not opt for a coloured background on your table menus? Stationery designers are crushing on beautifully coloured paper bases more and more, with the available ranges only growing. Try black or white text on a terracotta or clay inspired colour card. Place on top of a white napkin to make the table pop!

SOFT TABLE RUNNER

This look is bold but beautiful! Just another way to incorporate terracotta into the linens and texture of the table styling. Soft gauze fabrics and chiffon will work best to give a flowing and organic look. Combine with brass candle sticks and crystal cut glassware.

A coloured glass adds another level of personalisation to your wedding table. Try warm colours like amber and brown to introduce the terracotta tones and tie in the autumn hues. Easy to pair back with ivory linens and greenery.
