Styling a table for Diner en Blanc

September 1st, 2015

I get to do the coolest things sometimes!  This weekend I styled a table that was providing inspiration for the upcoming Diner en Blanc. Its basically a giant secret diner meets flash mob. Sounds like a blast, though allot of work – you bring all your stuff! That’s right – table, chairs, food and fabulous decor of course. All while wearing white and having everything you bring be white. No pressure. :)

Yesterday Kristen from the blog The Boston Fashionista was coming over with a pile of fabulous clothes to do the shoot.  (check out her blog post here! ) I went to work last week by hitting up the lovely duo at Artifact Home and Garden for many lovely items I could borrow. What a shopping trip.

Because I couldn’t decide I went for two looks – my original satin brass and white direction (with gold antlers!) and then another slightly more formal direct with an amazing set of dishes rimmed with the most delicate silver detailing. Below is the silver ‘look’. I got Meggin from the Singing Flower to lend her expertise with all things floral, which really pulls it all together and lends that finishing touch.

I do love the silver, but the gold antlers really gets me. I mean seriously – check them out!  I paired that with a clean, minimal satin brass place setting from West Elm.  I hope this provides inspiration for all the lucky people going to the Diner en Blanc!
