Use jewels, gemstones and geodes as perfect color pallet for an elegant, surprising wedding theme. From emerald to ruby, turquoise to sapphire; the color combinations are endless. Gemstone tones work well in any wedding reception, especially when combined with the right flowers. A gemstone inspired table setting can really be a hit.
The team at Don Florito Flowers
used a gemstones theme for this beautiful table setting that swept us off our feet. Designer Hidde Klink:
“Gemstones are becoming more and more popular now that you notice that we are all a bit more conscious about ourselves. The energy of gemstones has a certain effect on people. With this shoot we want to inspire wedding couples and translate love stories into breath-taking floral pieces.”
In this gemstone inspired table setting shoot, the team at Don Florito choose several varieties of Clematis
, Talinum 'Long John'
(a.o.) to fit their gemstone color theme and make free, airy and natural arrangements. Hidde:
“These flowers fit very well because of their color, shape and the feeling they convey”.

Take some advice from the masters and wow the wedding guests with a gemstone inspired table setting with these 5 tips:
Choose a few elements in the room that you want to highlight and go all out. In this room at Mayor Manor
in Amsterdam, Hidde and his team choose the mantelpiece and the table and decorated those as lush as possible.
2. Find the right balance
Gemstones come in so many shades and tones that it’s possible to get lost in the possibilities. Hidde choose a color pallet of red, purple, blue and nude and worked from there. The result: a breath-taking room with many decorations, yet perfectly balanced.
3. Bring in the details
You have your color pallet, your gemstones, your flowers. It’s time to bring in the details
: just the right color candles, combined tableware in warm gold hues, and special designed
wedding menus and placeholders that complement the theme.
4. Use the energy
The energy of gemstones
and crystals has a certain effect on people. They’re thought to promote the flow of good energy. Might be perfect to balance out that weird aunt at the dinner table ;-)
5. The perfect gift
Surprise the guests at the end of the wedding with a gemstone specially chosen for that person. The perfect wedding giveaway!
