In the thick of summer, there is no better reprieve than a bright and tropical table. With the season halfway over, we decided to bring the rainforest to the Hamptons with this punchy, colorful tablescape. (No flight required!)
For this festive and casual setting, we decided to abandon the tablecloth and opted to feature the natural teak of the table. With a theme so heavily focused on greenery, we decided to work backwards, and focus on the center of the table first. The Verdant Runner, with its flourishing vegetation, was the perfect addition to our table and brought a healthy measure of color. Miniature pineapples, orange Asclepias, Pincushion Proteas, and lavender Brodeas were placed down the center of the table for a burst of paradise.
To complement the flora, we selected our vivid Ombre Capiz Placemat in Salmon. Its glossy sheen was a foolproof way to add definition and lift against the matte finish of the table.
To give each place setting a unique feel, we combined hexagonal melamine plates with a subtle bamboo edge from the Kim Seybert Chinoiserie collection with assorted palm leaf salad plates. For a touch of whimsical flair, we simply rolled the Fiesta Napkin in Natural and Orange with our Toucan Napkin Ring. Our Zebrawood Flatware brought an additional layer of depth with its polished, rich finish.
No look is complete without a splash of vintage. Moroccan inspired glassware picked up on an antiquing trip features a gold trellis motif with citron details invited a luxurious, exotic touch to the entire look.
