Back on March 1st and 2nd was Art of the Table 2014 and it was the 10th Anniversary Celebration. This is becoming one of my favorite events each year as it showcases some of the best designers, florists, and planners in the Indianapolis area. It is always amazing for me to see what my industry friends come up with each year. Instead of just one table this year, I created two.
I actually started out planning just one, but after spending all day in the linen warehouse, I fell in LOVE with the chevron sequins linen and the concept I could use it for. So after a little grumble at myself for the extra work, I set out to create a chic, sophisticated, adult baby shower. Many of us have had the joy of hosting a baby shower for a family member or friend. What I wanted to do with this design is show how we should cater to the new mom and not necessarily the baby. Babies are great, but this party is for mom so why not make it designed for her.
For our table, we wanted a very adult, chic look. Our new mom loves sparkle so the chevron linen was the perfect fit. At the same time we did not forget about baby so we used the colors of her new room – purple and silver. We were very pleased with how this table turned out and we hope you enjoy it too. Finally, we feel very honored to have received the Art of the Table Best Theme Award for this table. It was a labor of love and we are glad the judges loved it too!
I love to hear what you think. Did we change the way you will think about baby showers?
