Paris has always been one of the top tourist destinations in the world. With romantic gardens, historic landmarks and stunning architecture, this city has inspired many interesting party themes, including travel-related ones. The NACE Tabletop WOW competition in Detroit on the theme “Around the World” also saw a beautiful entry featuring a Parisian theme. Here are some glimpses of it!
The table called “Parisian Afternoon” was one of the prettiest entries at the competition. The décor had generous doses of Tiffany blue, soft shades of pink and off-white that create a relaxing effect. The design includes delightful little trinkets like the blue dog salt and pepper shakers, that made it impressive to the smallest detail.
The entire arrangement was stunning, with a magical backdrop of paper flowers that complemented superb table décor. The impeccable spread was created on an ivory lace table cover.
This marvelous tabletop and backdrop were created by the three talented women seen here. They are Susin Silawa from The Harmony Collection & TAPSNAP, Rachael Love Wietecha is the Vice President of Programs for the NACE Detroit Chapter and the Meetings & Events Manager at Ford Direct and Amanda Adou of The Harmony Collection.
The three-dimensional backdrop featured magnificent luxury paper blooms over a curtain of blue lace. Every inch of the background had floral details that remind us of the magical ambiance of the gardens of Paris.
Beside the extravagant paper-flower backdrop is an easel with a vintage map of the city of Paris. This little detail adds further finesse to the arrangement.
On the other side is a beautiful side-table decorated with fragrant blooms. Delicious French patisserie is arranged in a tiered dessert holder.
Isn’t this place setting beautiful! Blue and white China with free-form rims sit in a glass service plate with a silver bead trim. A beautiful floral ring embellishes the rose satin dinner napkin. The lush table cloth with its rich lace applique details has beautiful texture.
Here is a picturesque centerpiece with various attractive elements. An elegant globe with a golden holder occupies the center. Sculpted candles and fresh blooms packed into a paper lined box complete this arresting display.
French macaroons in various colors are neatly stacked in a white ceramic dish. They form a beautiful and delicious display.
Casually flung over a chair is a tote with a French print. It holds a bouquet of flowers and a loaf of bread. These small details instantly enhance the appeal of the setting.
Vintage tea cups and saucers with floral prints, and wine glasses with embellished stems add opulence to the display.
Not surprisingly, this tabletop did win a prize and provided lots of inspiration.
