This year we decided to forgo the traditional reds and greens of the Christmas holiday and instead opted for something a bit on the wild side. A spontaneous brainstorming session with Ruth Panopio, Wanda Sobel, myself and Yolanda Davis, our linen room supervisor, came up with the winning combo to dress the tables. The underlay is a richly textured 132″ Round Bengaline in Teal with a Zebra-print faux animal skin overlay, napkins and chair ties in a soft and silky Radiant Violet Lamour and the chairs a dark fruitwood Chivari. Asa Florals created the centerpieces using white roses, peonies and orchids, purple mokaras, green cyms, silver pinecones and teal glass ornaments – a classy touch atop the animal skin.
If you’re stuck in a theme-planning rut you’re welcome to stop by our office and linen room to help get your creative juices flowing. We’ll bring in a few folks from the different departments, throw some linen at the walls and see what we come up with….almost like a party to plan a party. I’m liking this idea.
