This was a very fun project! My assignment was to create a setting for some very different SF neighborhood signs. Each table was to be named after a local district. I began by fanning out the cards next to the flowers in the market to come up with a family that worked with all the colors. A sweet challenge indeed! My favorite find was the perfect sunset shaded rose to bring out the one color that was in all the signs. The setting was the Golden Gate Club in San Francisco, it was a misty evening, perfectly mirroring the way the artist had rendered all his images. Lots of gold votives and covered ivy pots filled out the space below and made a welcoming warm glow.
I've always wanted to do a camping style centerpiece and finally last week I was able to fulfill my wish! My task was to provide two different designs, one to represent 'nighttime' and another for 'daytime'. So a few logs, river rocks and moss later this is what transpired: my favorite part is the flame, so life like... And of course we couldn't have a true campfire without s'mores! For the daytime version each one is a little different. The base is a birch log, the type you perch on in between playing games... Small boats, fishing poles, grizzly bears and sports equipment finished the look.
A travel theme centerpiece is a fun way to share your favorite destinations with your guests. Each table, instead of having a number, features a special destination in the world with cultural elements such as iconic buildings, leisure activities, the country's flag, specialty foods, etc. Here is a selection of some favorites!
Countries: USA, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, Denmark, Spain, China, Israel, Costa Rica, Japan, Russia, Canada, France
