So exciting to share the two parties, "Dinner in the Country" and "Coastal Cool," I styled for the new book, Palm Beach Entertaining by Annie Falk. Palm Beach Entertaining provides an insider's look at the lives and entertaining styles of some of the world's most accomplished hosts.
Dinner in the Country
This subtle yet elegant outdoor party used uplighting to illuminate the textural bark of the oak tree, while oversized silver lanterns filled with pillar candles flicker above a teak table set with zebra-print runners, silver sculptures of game fowl, and reflective square vessels holding an assortment of white bulb flowers.
Coastal Cool was all about layering. A floor-length ikat tablecloth is topped with a coarse linen runner, on which are placed corals, sea fans, and barnacles in a palette of neutral tones with pops of lavender. Hammered metal chargers sit beneath graphic Jacques Bernardaud plates and gold-rimmed, crystal wine goblets and simple water tumblers add the perfect mixed match effect.
