Tabletop design is an artform in itself. Good tabletop design creates an entire sensory experience out of socializing and enjoying cuisine that a chef puts his or her heart, soul and time into creating just for you. It's not only a way to honor the food and chef, but also a way to send a message to your guests that you are willing to take the time and effort to create a beautiful environment just for them.
When incorporating florals into a tabletop design, it's important to think about which natural objects will best harmonize with the place settings you choose. You also have to consider a design that promotes social interaction, rather than impeding it. Be careful not to place floral arrangements that are too tall between guests, for example.
Tabletop design ranges from a real profession to hobby. If you're just getting started, don't be afraid to play around and see what works. Peruse magazines like Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, Elle Decor or Architectural Digest. Magazines and blogs are a great place to start for inspiration!
E designed the Asian-influenced tables below using lots of texture and a gorgeous color palette of fuschia and various shades of green with orchids, hydrangea and succulents. The amazing photos are by Marianne Lozano!

I know we’re not the only ones who eagerly anticipate new issues of Grace Ormonde’s Wedding Style, not only because we’ve been honored by the opportunity to have our designs included but because it’s always fresh with inspiration and images that make you grateful for the gift of sight.
With her new coffee table book, “being in love never goes out of style” Grace once again leaves us breathless. Last night, we had the opportunity to attend the soiree celebrating its release and let me tell you, the ballroom at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills was abuzz with excitement about this new celebration of one of the things we love most: weddings. “being in love never goes out of style” is Grace’s own pictoral anthology of weddings that serves as both testament to her expertise and homage to the art of weddings. From Grace’s own Wedding Style Magazine website: “Art is subjective. Art is meant to be shared,” and with the release of this 400 plus page collection, Grace Ormonde truly shares her art with the world and reminds us all that not only does being in love never go out of style, but continually evolving artists such as her never do either.
