Journeys around the world would be impossible without vehicles! So, it was a brilliant idea by Kathy Campbell to focus on this indispensable part of traveling “around the world”, when she designed her entry for the 2016 Tabletop WOW competition by NACE, Detroit. Perfect for a vintage travel theme wedding or party, here are some great photos.
The table setting was neat, uncluttered and classic. However, the highlight of the display was that all the transportation vehicles on the tablecloths were actually hand painted. Take a closer look to see how charming it was!
The setting introduces us to the theme with a display that reads “Let the Adventure Begin.” Polished silver-rimmed glassware hold vintage ticket rolls that are apt for this theme. The table linen is neatly hand-painted with the same quote.
The glassware at each place setting doubles up as display pieces that house vintage ticket rolls. These pretty details add a pop of color to the setting, and enhance the theme. Clusters of purple and blue hydrangea form simple but beautiful floral centerpieces at this setting.
The silver and white in the arrangement forms an elegant combination, as we can see in this picture. The China on the table is opulent and arranged beautifully. The service plate has silver beads along the trim, while the embellished dinner plate and tea cups look stunning next to it.
Hand painted vehicles on the table cover, like this steam boat, add vintage flair to the arrangement.
This version of a vintage car is just amazing! The subtle colors used in it complement the theme well.
This hand painted antique silhouette is actually displayed on an easel beside the table setting. The muted colors and characters in the image effectively transport us to a bygone era; a time when traveling was an exciting and dangerous prospect than it is today. This display also highlights the central quote used throughout the setting.
