In my last post I told you about a garden club show I attended last week. The theme was Run for the Roses and the arrangements were magnificent! I was intrigued by the designs, but imagine my sheer delight when I found out there was tablescaping category…..hmmmm…setting the table for fun and sport :) A competition? I had to contain myself to keep from trampling other guests!
I’ll start out by showing you the winner. Now remember, the judges’ focus is on the flowers within a tablescape setting and not on the tablescape itself. I do love the colors, but haven’t figured out what the odd bread plate is doing :)
This is a fun one. I love the pink paired with the black and white harlequin design. Layered napkins too.
The crystal epergne was filled with pink roses. Do any of you know what the green plant is?
This was my personal favorite. I love the tall arrangement and red and yellow combination. There were three layers of linens. (I do not take photos well under pressure :). The julep cups and mint incorporated the derby theme.
The china continued the red rose theme. I asked the designer about the china. She said she didn’t know what it was….had never looked…..should I pick it up? Noooo….I’m too busy juggling a cucumber tea sandwich, a glass of mint tea, and my camera :). No way to be discreet :)
Now, SSSSHHHHH….don’t tell. I think you ladies (and Bill, of course :) are much better at this. Please don’t rat me out. I want to go back next year!
