fete florals


Farmhouse Fête’s design and floral teams have created eight unique centerpiece looks to capture the essence of the country fête. We started with our favorite floral looks, then edited each vase, votive, riser and table number until we achieved the perfect tablescape.  

Below, you'll find the floral image that inspired us followed by the items we've chosen to complement its look. And of course the florals are all signature Farmhouse Fête arrangements, and the items below it are all available to rent on first-come, first-served basis.

All floral arrangements shown below are conceptual. Amy, Farmhouse Fête’s lead florist, will work with you to create your perfect floral vision. Contact Amy at amy@farmhousefete.com.


Floral: This beautifully detailed glass pedestal dish is the perfect size and height (7 1/2'' tall x 6'' wide) for an uncluttered table. The deep green glass pairs beautifully with any color scheme and allows for a free flowing and organic looking floral design.

Design: When we saw the original antique Fenton glass compote that Amy wanted to design around, the design team scoured antique shops until we found 20 in perfect condition. This piece is stunning and understated at the same time, so we looked for complements that were equally feminine and stately. The addition of a simply framed table number and rose gold colored votives make this collection versatile, compact and polished. 


Floral: A simplified version of option 1, this centerpiece offers a more traditional approach to your table. With a smaller pedestal (3 inches tall) and smaller diameter (3.5 inches wide), it is low and perfect for a smaller centerpiece. The neutral champagne color goes well with most floral choices and despite it's small size, it can stand up to a variety of sizes/shapes of flowers.

Design: We've discovered more modern metal table numbers in a champagne color to match the dipped votives. This is a great option for centerpieces that are compact and simple without sacrificing style.


Floral: This mercury glass vase in a golden-bronze finish is unequivocally vintage glam and pairs nicely with other metallic shades. It is best used with a more structured arrangement. It perfectly complements monochromatic blooms in a single variety, such as the roses featured in the photo or fluffy white hydrangeas.

Design: Bronze votives add drama to this table's elegance, while the unique door knob table number holder literally brings something new to the table!


Floral: Nothing says country wedding like mason jars and wildflowers! We've taken it up a notch by using authentic antique jars with metal accents around the rim. We then paired it with 3 small bottles to highlight individual blooms.

Design: Placing the arrangement on a distressed cream pedestal helps to define the space and bring out the sweetness of a wildflower bouquet. Chalkboard table numbers on a neutral colored holder and mason jar votives allow the wildflowers to stand out in any color combination.


Floral: Clean, simple and modern. Using only one bloom per bottle allows for high impact. This look is best suited for statement flowers with a big wow factor, such as fully opened peonies, fluffy garden roses or hydrangeas. Whether you want a mix of bold colors or softer shades, this is a great choice for creating a high impact design.

Design: This unique centerpiece will leave your guests in awe. We lowered the vases directly onto the table but added two taller bottles to amp up the drama of these stunning single blooms. The antique shapes of the bottles, silver mercury glass votives and vintage door knob table number holders bring this very modern look seamlessly into a countryside setting. 


Floral: When we heard what the design team wanted to do with this centerpiece, it took us a moment to fully understand. But now that we see their ideas (below), we couldn't be more thrilled when we added an industrial edge to lush greenery and white accents.

Design: Our unique black pedestal puts an industrial twist on relatively monochromatic arrangements. The key to making this centerpiece stand out is using rich greenery. We've added a wrought iron and brass telescoping table number stand, gold votives and simple table number. The rustic pedestal adds much needed height and definition without overtaking the table. You won’t be able to find this rare centerpiece anywhere else!


Floral: A natural wooden planter box overflowing with a variety of fresh-picked buds and blooms makes this centerpiece charming and full of joy! Best used for a "farm stand" kind of look, it lends itself well for a more natural and free flowing floral approach. The flowers meander and flow wherever they desire, spilling over the sides wherever it suits them.

Design: It's hard to improve on this one for a countryside event. We added some additional depth to the tablescape by alternating wooden boxes with multi-height bottles with single blooms. This helps reduce the overall number of blooms required without diminishing the impact. The table numbers mimic the whimsy of a chalkboard while the votives add a nice sparkle to the table. 


Floral: Elegantly rustic. The charming cream crackle finish vase complements the lovely muted shades of sage green, soft tan, ivory, burgundy and other colors. 

Design: Perched atop two varying sizes of log rounds adds more definition to the table, and the raffia ribbon complements this rustic tablescape. We chose to pair it with a bronze picture frame table number and bronze votives. Nobody said rustic couldn't also be elegant!











Woodland Wonderland Styled Shoot

The perfect woodland wonderland wedding starts with finding the ideal spot-an old growth forest whose foliage high above you filters the glaring sun. The forest floor is covered with ferns and packed earth, allowing you to meander through the trees without worry of stumbling through thick brush and low hanging limbs. And the light is nothing short of magical. Watching the morning rays break through the tress takes your breath away. Even on a cloudy day the swaying branches create such movement in the light that you will swear you're been transported to Wonderland.  

The space feels private and peaceful, an unspoiled natural beauty. If you long for the mood of Walden, On Golden Pond, or even your long ago summer camp, this type of venue is for you. For our styled shoot, we found our wooded bliss at Blue Moon Rising in Deep Creek, Maryland. Less than a mile away is the bustling area of Deep Creek Lake during peak tourism season, yet you would never guess that such activity was occurring so close by.

Blue Moon Rising is an eco-resort designed to be a completely natural experience. Their wedding areas give you access to the woods in a way that is both comfortable and completely respectful of the environment. It took only a brief visit to Blue Moon Rising for the design mavens of Farmhouse Fête (that's us!) to envision the woodland wonderland wedding that would fit beautifully there.  

Decor was kept simple, utilizing wooden and wrought iron pieces that would complement, but not compete, with the natural setting. We wanted the floral design to appear organic, as though these gorgeous blooms were growing directly out of the earthen forest floor. The bride would appear as mother nature, covered in her flora. There would be no picked and process bouquet for her- the blooms would appear to grow across her body and drape from her wrist.

When thinking through any celebration, we at Farmhouse Fête are guided by our founding principles: inspire, connect, captivate. "Weddings are about love, but not just the love between the happy couple. They are one of the only times you will be surrounded by all of the people you care most for in the world", says Amy White, Farmhouse Fête's Director of Floral Design. Michelle Atkinson, Fête's Event Stylist adds, "We love to design events in a way that is genuinely reflective of a couple's personality and invites guests into their world, while enabling them to relax and live in the moment."  

As the evening progresses, excitement builds, and the day becomes a celebration of all love, while inspiring hope for the future and renewing faith in friendship, commitment, and family." Designing in a peaceful wooded paradise is a natural fit for our philosophy, as the connection with nature further fosters human connection. Farmhouse Fête, based out of Friendsville, Maryland, brings a chic worldly design perspective to a rural area. It is part of The Fête Companies, a group of wedding businesses dedicated to redefining the modern wedding.
