The Final Touch

Friday, January 17, 2014
We're taking our last photos for the website, and we're just as excited as Marilyn looks in this beautiful image by Bert Stern.
Happy Weekend! Please excuse our sporadic posting the past few weeks. We are in the final stages of launching our new website, and we couldn't be more excited. We're taking the last photos, finishing our last tech jargon spreadsheet, and seeing everything come together in a way that will make our clients have instant gratification by building their own tabletops with our virtual table. It's taken over a year of planning and software building from the group up, and we appreciate your patience. With just a few weeks left, you can expect us to share a countdown date very soon. Until then, be sure to follow us here and on facebook for the latest news and tips.

Tabletop Tuesday | Welcome Party

Tuesday, January 14, 2014
How do newlyweds welcome friends and family to their hometown of Dallas? By bringing in the best for a stunning reception of cut crystal, gorgeous florals, and whimsical accessories at the Nasher Sculpture Center, of course. Charleston event planners Easton Events designed this festive soiree with the help of Dallas favorites Jackson Durham, La Tavola Linens, POSH, Wolfgang Puck, and Beyond. We're not the only ones who loved these sweet welcome party. Martha Stewart featured all the fun here while you can see the wedding reception in the special edition wedding issue.

Jackson Durham's luscious floral arrangements flock collections of candles and birds, while our Exotic Bird Dinner Plate sits pretty for the main course (above). The Nasher reception included all the elements a tabletop needs to truly shine - Cut Crystal Chargers, Silverplate Silverbead Flatware, and Pure Stemware. All photography by Ryan Ray.

Silverbead Salad Plates with the Lily Flower Server are the perfect foundation for a gourmet feast from Wolfgang Puck.


Silver Screen Stunners | Golden Globe Style

Monday, January 13, 2014
We're so inspired by this year's Golden Globe Awards. Beyond this being an incredible year for movies (12 Years a Slave, The Wolf of Wall Street, The Dallas Buyers Club, Blue Jasmine, our list goes on and on!), Tina Fey and Amy Poehler being the best hosts ever, Matthew McConaughey winning (with an "Alright, alright, alright" no less) and the incredible talent, it was also one of our favorite year's for fashion. Every single star showed why they deserve red carpet treatment. We can't wait to see the Best Dressed lists, but for now, we're translating our favorite looks to tabletop.

1. Naomi Watts and Robin Wright prove that age is but a number because they looked hotter than ever. We loved their silver stunners by Tom Ford and Reem Acra, respectively. The simplicity of such a look shines in a way we've seen with a Diann Valentine tabletop. Think Barcelona Silver or Silver Versailles for place settings and Valencia Etched Stemware for toasting a night of stars.
2. Lupita Nyong'o is our favorite newcomer this year. Like everyone else in the world, we are obsessed with this new talent and the beauty she brings to every event. The girl has serious style. On the flip side, we're proud to see Amy Adams finally getting the recognition she deserves. Both leading ladies showed up in crimson hues, and rightfully so. They were simply unforgettable. A tabletop for our ladies in red would no doubt include the Scarlet Filigree Glass Charger like the Emily Clarke designed tabletop above.
3. Who doesn't love Jennifer Lawrence and Zoe Saldana. They are our outspoken and endearing stars and can do no wrong in our book. Jen wore Dior (of course) and Zoe wore an incredible Prabal Gurung number that set her apart as a style star yet again. We'd take these modern looks to tabletop in much the same way as Todd Fiscus for the TwoXTwo Gala - all modern with black and white. 
Who were your favorites this year?
