Scandinavian Event Design Basics

When creating an event around Scandinavian design, it’s fun to add a pop of bold color to the calm, muted tones. Did you know there’s a favorite accent color used with this neutral palette in Scandi design? It’s a bright blue that stands out so perfectly against the white. And, in this styled wedding shoot, which features our custom, imprinted apple favors, there are so many details that include this pretty, bright blue.Add pops of color and pattern to your neutral wedding palette!

Another element commonly found in Scandinavian design is natural, wood elements. The location for this event has beautiful wood flooring and furniture. The wood coloring is enhanced by the use of deeper red hues, like our custom apple favors, with the bright blue color.

Double Duty Design Element: Fun to Eat Fruit™

When you include our personalized Fun to Eat Fruit™ in your event, not only are you presenting your guests with a fun favor, it’s also a fantastic way to make each place setting pop with a burst of bold color. Say thank you for coming to your wedding guests with personalized Fun to Eat Fruit apples. A perfect pop of color for a neutral event design. www.funtoeatfruit.comAnd, when you give the gift of personalized fruit, your little gesture of gratitude towards your guests won’t go unnoticed.

For an extra burst of unexpected color, don’t forget about the cake. Just look at this hand painting on the wedding cake. Blue flowers make this wedding cake standout against a neutral, Scandi-inspired wedding event design. www.funtoeatfruit.comIt’s intricate and coordinates beautifully with the invitation suite.Scandinavian inspired wedding invitation suite. www.funtoeatfruit.com

And, lastly, when bringing Scandinavian design elements into your event, you can look towards clean lines (stripes) as they are a key element in Scandi style. In this styled shoot, the stripes were brought out in the wood pattern of the reception table. With the introduction of the stripes, you will elongate other lines that are present in the room, such as the wainscoting along the reception room walls.Add pops of color and pattern to your neutral wedding palette!

    Using a neutral palette with just a few bold colors is such an elegant design that still shows off the bride’s personality. The apple favors are such a great way to add more color but also a practical and healthy favor that guests will appreciate. Beautiful shoot!!
