We are so excited to bring you this nod to Britain in the 60’s designed by the very talented Kimberley Schlegel Whitman! Hosted and designed for Ylang 23’s dinner honoring jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth, the table set for 36 people was clearly and carefully planned around The Goss Michael Foundation, housing a British Art Collection. A decade known for its eccentric and Mod style, the 60’s was a redefining decade of style filled with color, strong patterns and a redefined classics.
For the table setting, Kimberly went with a colorful and playful aesthetic, which perfectly complimented the black and white works of art in the background. The long frosted glass tables laid quite a perfect foundation to build a tabletop that was not fussy and yet looked straight out of a 1960’s dinner party. Working with narrow tables, Darrel Ward designed a center piece that was modest and colorful. Using different colors of Gerber Daisies in small round votives, the floral design team lined the center of the tables, creating a timeless look. To round out the great tablescape, John Lennon like glasses were used to make napkin rings, how fun and creative!
Recreate this tabletop for your event and add other details that personalize it to your style. Whether you add more colors of glassware or use different chargers, this tabletop design is perfect to mix it up for fall!
