Pomp And Circumstance

Still Catching Up From Christmas

Posted in D.I.Y., Decor Files by Miss Circumstance on January 23, 2012

Remember that Christmas party that I had been working on in December (mentioned here, and here)? Well finally here are some pictures from the main food table

I wanted it to feel sort of monochromatic and organic, so I used lots of different textures but kept them in the same color family(ish)- linens, velvets, slubby cream-on-cream stripes, driftwoods. I kept the hems messy (as you can see in the last picture), and loosely knotted the corners for that easy-breezy look. I used golds, candle light, and mirrors for reflective surfaces, and one of my personal favorites was the bronz-y fake python I used for the bar (not pictured) and in the tray that held the utensils. Every party needs some python right? I think the key to this kind of thing is lots of layers, textures, and little vignettes for points of interest, but they all need to “speak” to each other as they say. I know- I want to punch me too.

I didn’t get pictures of the other areas, but you get the idea from the main food table. So once again I get on my soap-box of using the main food table for a high impact punch of decor goodness.
