A Mod Baroque Table Design

I’m totally loving this tablescape designed by the talented and super sweet Carissa of JL Designs. One of my favorite things about it – besides that stunning bouquet of orange cymbidium orchids and peach parrot tulips – are the cute little mini cakes at each place setting. Created by Melody at Sweet and Saucy Shop, they even have a graphic floral pattern on top to match the design! I love that Carissa takes the time to create a unique story with her table designs – how great are the ceramic horses!? From Carissa, accoutrements are SUPER popular in event design right now…for this shoot i used ceramic trojan horses, white finials and coral votive holders from target but the sky’s the limit! a stack of vintage books, a rustic birdsnest, a petite wood crate filled with summer strawberries – whatever it takes to give the tablescape true “character” as opposed to just a “centerpiece”…
