Luscious Natural Tablescape
This gloriously mismatched table combines chairs gathered from all over the home. Instead of unified vases, pull together all those unusual implements from your kitchen and get crafty! Create the feeling of kicking off your shoes and walking through the fields on a warm summer’s day, by replacing the traditional table runner with luscious natural textures, such as grass. Unify your design with a monochrome or two-tone palette and a variety of your favorite blooms –we love hydrangeas, sweet peas, thistles, poppies and clematis. Place the flowers right on top of the grass to add that casual feel –like dining in a field of flowers.
Tropical Trailing Landscape
Summer in the city can leave us dreaming about soft white sands and vibrant landscapes. This tropical table will allow you to escape the urban environment and enter an intimate paradise. Perfect for that romantic moment, this spontaneous asymmetrical design incorporates studier plants, like pincushion protea and succulents, with delicate elements, like peach phalaenopsis orchids, and culminates in the use of climbing vines of smilax to create a cascading effect. To emphasize the tropical hues keep the table décor simple, use clear glassware and classic white dinnerware. Unify your vibrant colors and textures with pale lemon or chartreuse linen and produce a subtle glow that mimics the warm, summer light.
