Thinking Outside Of The Vase: Flowers & Design
Dear Readers:As New York Fashion Week kicks off tomorrow, I thought this was a perfect time to showcase one of my tables that that was inspired by Piet Mondrian, one of my favorite designers. I have always felt a great connection between fashion and event design, especially in this table which I created in honor of this iconic designer.
Today, I will share the formula behind the creation of this table:
Step One: Get a black table cloth that fits a 5-foot square table.
Step Two: Establish a graphic pattern that follows one of the artists pieces.
Step Three: Cut vinyl paper in different colors in order to follow the artist’s design.Step Four: Select flowers in same colors as the vinyl.
Step Five: You probably already have hundreds of clear votive candle holders. Use these to set each individual flower.
Step Six: Match each container with the their respective color squares.
Make sure that you leave enough room for the place settings. You can very well create your own pattern using the same design principal.
Question: What do you think of the design? Too much? What artist would you like to honor with a table design?
