Beautiful floral arrangements are works of art, particularly when they are created to meet a challenge such as that demanded by Florescence, an annual themed flower show in Houston. For two days the entries are displayed at the Museum of Fine Arts where huge crowds marvel at the astonishing creativity.
With so many of you interested in tablescapes, how could I not share these with you! The arrangements were to depict a dining experience at an exotic destination on a functional table for two. You may not find every element of the tablescape to be practical, but there is inspiration on each for our at home tables.
This is a very formal table with layers of textiles complementing the gold accents on the stemware and china.
Unique features are the unexpected use of orchids on the candlestickand the fish jumping into bowls filled with iridescent baubles.
As with the first table, a tall arrangement is the focal point. I couldn’t help but think of sitting at either and wanting to move the arrangement to the side.
Two things, the teacup as a containerand a natural leaf secureing the napkin, are features worth remembering.
This table is all about fun and thanks to the clever arrangement I could almost forgive its size as a centerpiece. The use of pattern and color is consistent in every detail
right down to the elephants suspended at the layered corners. What sets this table apart is its touches of whimsey.
Here pattern is key,and the layered textiles define the color palette used in both the flower selection and tableware.
Overall, this is a simple table made warm and inviting by color and texture. Did you notice that the floral arrangement is on the side?
So, there you have it, four different looks. Keep in mind that in each case the table is secondary to the floral design. As beautiful as they are, the arrangements are a bit overstated for an at home table, but there are wonderful ideas for presentation and flower selection. Hopefully, there is something on each table that would translate to your personal style be it flower selection, color combination, the layering of cloth, the mixed textures or touches of whimsey. I’d love to know your take away.
