Photo Tour: Tabletop Highlights of Dining By Design 2013
Janet Ramin - Need decorating inspiration for your next holiday dinner party? Take a look at the following exciting tabletop design set in wild, fantasy backdrops and you won’t be able to wait to host your next party! DIFFA, Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS, hosted their annual fundraising Dining by Design event showing off creations by top designers and event planners.
The lingering cold weather outside may protest, but springtime flourished through the tabletop décor at the show. Designer Marc Blackwell, known for his tabletop and home accessories, showed off his sparkling china collection – with designs so beautiful, they deserved to be displayed both on the table and on the wall! The orange tulip centerpiece picked up the sunny color scheme from the china.
Kenneth Cobonpue, a Filipino designer, set his outdoor party in a green, eco-friendly and very romantic gazebo. Who said green design can't be beautiful? Cobonpue added dishes of bamboo and touches of green with leafy napkin rings and a moss centerpiece. The airy gazebo and furniture is made of easily renewable rattan.
