Shabby chic tables combine high quality accessories with vintage items and a taste of unrefined nature. This San Francisco wedding featured on Style Me Pretty hit all the marks. Each individual element looks effortless but put together it creates the perfect reception table. Make your guests feel relaxed and comfortable while elegant and refined at the same time.

Get the look by combining rented china plates, a vintage or lace table cloth and in-season flowers or vegetables. A well designed table number and sophisticated touch of feminine ring around the napkin finishes this shabby chic look.
And are those truffles I see in the background? I told you wedding truffles were a good idea…
I don’t know where the term ‘shabby chic’ came from but I am constantly drawn to the images that fall into this category. It’s an unrefined elegance – a combination of natural, seamlessly-careless pieces put together to make for some stunningly beautiful pictures. And it usually has a very subtle touch of country. So this week I am planning the ultimate shabby chic wedding, an easy wedding theme for those couple looking for fabulous presentation on a limited budget.
Here are a few images that would make perfect details at a shabby chic wedding, so you know what we’re looking for this week.

I love the way purple, green and brown look for an autumn wedding but purple is the main focus here and green and brown are just striking accents. These dark purple damask wedding invitations by Modern Girl Invitations are the perfect addition to my purple fall wedding. I love the vintage touch on these rather modern wedding invites. Damask patterns are such a timeless design. These invitations are elegant yet understated, which is the theme of this structured yet laid back outdoor wedding. And the detailing down the side is divine.
These purple damask wedding invitations needn’t stand alone – keep your wedding stationary consistent and get the entire suite. The detailing on the edge of these escort cards will be an easy way to add elegance to your wedding reception tables.
