An Ethereal Winter Reception

A monochromatic reception setting steeped in otherworldly textures and romantic details by New Zealand stylists One Fine Day and Wild Hearts.


Within the whitewashed walls of a Queenstown Art Gallery, New Zealand stylists One Fine Day and Wild Hearts created a tablescape inspiring ethereal, winter receptions. In a contrasting palette of light and shade, natural elements are woven together to create dreamy ambience. Illuminated by candlelight, crystalline glasses are stained in smokey hues, ivory ceramics hold knotted linen napkins and sculptural branches and blooms are displayed in artful vessels for a modern and unexpected twist on winter reception styling.



“What we love about this style is its instrinsic nature which determines a true reflection of a romantic look that couples can create for a winter wedding.”

“Talk to your florist about using blooms that are in season and be open to using preserved varieties at this time of year when fresh blooms are less available. Using varieties like meuhlenbeckia can add volume to your table setting and create the true essence of a winter wedding vibe.”
