An exciting theme like “Autumn Around the World” yields to many interpretations. Edward P Smith of Country Lane Flower Shops chose to explore this theme in autumnal style at the Detroit NACE Tabletop WOW Competition. His entry featured the magnificent colors and distinct beauty of fall, through an impressive table setting. Here are the pictures of this display.
The table is decorated in splendid fall colors, and with the bounty of autumnal elements . The majestic centerpiece features an abundance of vivid floral elements and rustic foliage. The shimmering chocolate-colored table cover adds a touch of class to the overall table décor.
One of the best things about this table setting is how it combines form with function. The centerpiece extends upwards, with tiers of spiral branches that reach towards the ceiling. These branches are studded with floral bouquets in a mix of autumnal colors at various places. Since the arrangement is vertical, it doesn’t block the view. So, guests seated around the table can see each other easily. The base of the centerpiece is lit up by globe-shaped candles.
The display exudes luxury, with a gold-rimmed plate on an elegant golden charger plate. Ornate gold cutlery adds to the beauty of the setting. Placed within these plates is a glittering gold napkin with a delicately colored maple leaf and gentle orchid embellishments.
Notice the clever use of the spiral branches and globe-shaped candles as symbolic interpretations of the “Around the world” theme. This depiction is not just apt, it looks attractive too.
The exuberant flower arrangements nestle within circling twigs and branches in creative fashion. Pops of yellow blooms and red berries, luscious peach and pink rose flowers as well as wiry branches make this a beautiful display of textures.
Smooth and round yellow candles add a warm glow to the setting. Vintage-styled crystal glassware completes the beautiful tabletop with elegance.
