Our latest tablescape dreamt up for the stunning beachfront balcony at The Avalon on the Beach was inspired by the venue’s mesmerising views, the serene fluidity of the ocean, and the dancing light that spills through it’s shapeshifting surfaces.
A fine balance of delicate lightness and chic elegance, tables are dressed with dramatically draped textural white linen providing a crisp palette for the flowing cascade of andromeda and white phalaenopsis orchids that spill effortlessly down the side of the table.
The glassware is beautifully irregular, mirroring the movement of water itself and glistening in the afternoon light. The organically shaped tableware paired with handloomed cotton napery billows in the light breeze. Handpenned calligraphy placecards on texturally raw edged card creates a fine contrast with the matte black flatware and black wire seating, grounding the organic elements of the tablescape.
To recreate this look, source hand touched ceramics & delicately organic glassware and layer the centre of the table with textural blooms or foliage. Keep flower heights low to take full advantage of the view and allowing ease and flow of conversation across the table. Contrast softer elements with bold features such a black flatware or striking menu designs within the setting for interest and drama.
