This spring and summer, we’re no longer looking for “reasons” to entertain. We think a random Tuesday is reason enough to gather friends or family! And this event, from Christine Traulich of RedBliss Design and Emily Pinon of Bastille Flowers & Events, has us ready to put on our hostess hats.
What’s most unique about this event is the innovative and eye-catching tablescape. “We wanted to highlight the ease and beauty of using real ivy as a table covering and how our laser cut chargers allow the ivy to ‘grow’ through them creating a special garden-style place setting,” Christine told us. The result is total English garden vibes — the oasis of vines and organic floral composition makes it appear like the garden has literally come right to the table. Christine tells us more:
- First, color! Coming out of the white and gray winter months we crave color. Especially green!
- Second, add gold. The shimmer and shine of gold metallic brings some sunshine to the table.
- Third, serve a bright and effervescent beverage that coincides with the welcome warmer weather. My go-to is a mimosa or a bellini.
- And as a lovely unexpected treat, wrap up the spring flowers from the table into an arrangement for your last guest to take home.
