Animal Print

You’ve seen it in fashion, home decor, and now, weddings. Animal print has gone from tacky to specktacular, and adds fun to any space. Try incorporating this trend into your tablescape and reception decor to tie in the jungle theme.

Play up your decor with different textures and colors. We love this tonal contrast between neutral and color, with fringe details and sweet florals amongst the breezy palms. This setting is truly picture perfect!
