Putting Down Roots in Oregon This May

Putting Down Roots in Oregon This May

April showers brought May flowers, and then some!

As may wraps up we’re lucky to be surrounded by beautiful flowers in Oregon, our home away from home. Being in a more comfortable climate over on the West coast makes us more anxious for the beautiful days of summer ahead.

The spring sky here seems to be a little bluer and the sun seems to shine a little brighter. Over the past few weeks we weren’t the only ones to appreciate the brilliant blue of the Oregon sky, our brides Caitlin and Jessica brought this breathtaking blue in small hints throughout their wedding arrangements.

Soft billowy white fabrics mimic the cool breeze of the day and the landscape of the Water Oasis in Newberg was as beautiful as always. Another big congratulations to Caitlin and Jessica,thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day.

Even though we’re always looking forward, some events are too amazing that we can’t help but take a look back. This month we drew some rainbow inspo from an event back in Phoenix. 

The Taste of Waldorf Event was a huge success! We had an amazing time pairing incredible natural produce with different florals to create one of a kind centerpieces for the Biltmore’s big event.

All the colors were incredibly vibrant and matched the fresh and sophisticated palette of the Taste of Waldorf event menu. The energy of the event was fun, fresh and alive, making these amazing centerpieces a perfect fit for the occasion. Look at their incredible presentation!

Their talented culinary team didn’t disappoint with the day’s signature dishes, keeping all the fresh flavors and bright colors of the organic produce at the forefront of their presentation.


Another stunning event in Phoenix had us feeling inspired and thankful to be out of the scorching heat all in one.

We also brought a behind the scenes look at another stunning wedding at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa. We managed to create a soothing space for the friends and family at this wedding to relax despite the record breaking heat that day!

Some screenshots of our video give you a look at how the splashes of crisp white and small textured centerpieces give the outdoor space a softer and more relaxed atmosphere. 

At night the white table settings and flowers came alive with the romantic glow from the string lights placed above the tables. Luckily the evening got cooler and more comfortable as guests celebrated into the night.

We’re soaking in the summer sunshine and loving every second.

With summer only officially starting here in Oregon, we look forward to bringing the mid summer’s night wedding dreams of our clients to reality. Besides, there’s something extra magical about summer fireflies twinkling through the night with the scent of your favorite flowers dancing through the air. We love summer weddings in Oregon!

Happy Memorial Day from the Table Tops etc. team! We hope you and your family have a happy and healthy start to your summer this weekend and look forward to celebrating with you in the months to come.

Melissa Lewis – Owner/Floral Designer Flowers have been Melissa’s passion – either as a designer or an owner – for over two decades. Melissa opened her first shop called The Rose Petaler in Scottsdale, Arizona in 1992 after working for an Ecuadorian family in Boston learning the rose trade. Her bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts from The Colorado College taught her many valuable skills about owning and operating a small business. She successfully sold the company in 2001 to spend more time with her children. Unable to stay away for too long, Melissa purchased Table Tops, Etc. in April 2003 from a friend she worked for following her short hiatus. She has been designing fabulous events – from lavish soirees and intimate anniversary parties to three-day conferences and 800-guest weddings – and has an amazing following! Over 2,100 executed events over the course of her carrier! “I have a confession to make! When I was seven years old and living in Marblehead, Massachusetts, I stole tulips from our public gardens as a Mother’s Day gift. That was the beginning . . . and it’s only grown from there. Lilacs from my neighbors’ gardens would find their way to vases throughout my home each season. And, each year on my vacations back East, I would dry sea lavender plucked from the New England shores and moss dug from the damp Maine forests – just to add a little something special to client arrangements. I love flowers. I have always loved flowers. I can’t tell you what a joy it is to have the opportunity to work with them every day – and share them with others!” If you have any questions, please email Melissa directly at melissa@tabletopsetc.net.
