Black, White, Floral and Dorothy Draper All Over

It’s no surprise blogland collectively gasped over the amazing Dorothy Draper-inspired wedding decor featured in Elegant Bride -- the black and white striped table cloths, gold flatware, elegant tapered candlesticks, bursting bouquets of blooms and relaxed antique-looking louis chairs were refreshingly creative and unexpected in a world of chiavari chairs and white on white!


While browsing on netaporter, I did a double take upon seeing this  Stella McCartney frock -– it is as if the wedding decor was transposed into dress form!

Inspired by the decor-to-fashion swish, I decided to build upon the tablescape and create a quick scheme that can be used in your own home for that hit of unexpected eclectic Draper style:
