From Cheerful Table-settings at Golden Globe 2020 to Our Everyday Eating Experiences

we know that  a beautiful tabletop always makes any event so sweet, memorable and vibrant,  not even mentioning  prestigious academy events like Golden Globe.  The design of the tabletop at 77th Golden Globe is chic, modern with a touch of signature Hollywood glamor—roses and Champaign.

03goldenglobes3

The all-white dinner set choice, for sure, keeps all of the possible chaoes and fusses  into the minimum while providing calming and clean backdrop for the beautifully arranged two-tone rose centerpieces, also, I believe, the smiles of the star guests.

Well, Beyonce’s gown really  looks good with those bright orange and yellow roses.

Celebrity florist Mark’s Garden is behind the floral designs for this year’s show, and the California-based business flew in more than 10,000 blooms from Ecuador and Italy for the ceremony. The flowers, which have vibrant orange and yellow hues, add a pop of color to the dozens of tables inside the ballroom.

So, learning lesson here to set up a beautiful tabletop in a crowded and busy moment  is  with a simple  table setting.  Plus, it is the beginning of the year, you probably want to refresh your table with a minimal effort.  White is the easiest color to style – its classic, calm and never goes out of fashion. That’s why every stylish table needs a crisp white tableware collection that’s highly versatile.

Our New Year Day Brunch Tabletop

Guys, happy 2020! We kicked off our new year day of 2020 yesterday by a  Mimosa toast brunch at home. I love color palette of pink, yellow, green and red, they are fresh, cheerful and chic—a great color scheme to start 2020.

Home-made Raspberry Keto Cake( no sugar, no artificial sweeter, grain-free, gluten-free, all organic raspberry, organic coconut flour…) We have had this two-tier desert for many years and always use it to display our desert creations.
IMG_7755.jpg
Yes, here is our home-made Mimosa cocktail—fresh and tasty! We have our own Waterford drink ware collection and those sparkling crystal glasses make the tabletop so festive and luxuious.
IMG_7760.jpg
All of greenery and flowers are garden fresh.
IMG_7767.jpg

Hope your new year celebration is wonderful too. Just to sum up , there are 3 ways to put up an elegant yet casual tabletop for any events table-tops if you would like those events to be memorable:

  1. Always study cool and trendy receips and create your own based on your own taste and color references.
  2. Always  use what you have around you. In our case, we have various greenery and camilier blooms in our backyard at this season.
  3. Last but not the least  is to grow your own drink-ware or dinnerware collections over the years since they really make the whole tabletop shine and give you a wonderful moment to enjoy.  When you grow your own collections(and they can be from your mother-in-law or your grandma or you explore them from the flea market), you develop eye for elegant table-tops and can really enjoy the fun to mix-and-match.

A Beautiful tabletop in Sun-filled Room

Finally, rain stops and sun is out. And most importantly, the weather is finally getting warm up to 70 degree in Los Angeles. I know it has been a weird cold for a very long time since last Nov.  I think I prefer the warmer weather with a lot sunshines. Who wouldn’t?

Well, it is March and spring is just around the corner and Easter is coming soon. I just cannot wait to put up a beautiful outdoor tabletop for entertaining with some fresh color palettes and romantic components.  What about you?

So, I decided to go through some photos and videos from the events we  have been to recently for inspiration.  Then I found this video I shot—I wish I could have done it better.  Maybe next time.  But the whole set-up, organic components, the sun-lights, crystals and yummy cookies in pastel colors and of course fresh flower pedals really talk to me.   I love how they have a large wood branch as a center piece with elegant crystal sculptures scattering  around.  The contrast between organic elements and high-polished items creates such a beautiful , moody,  refined yet relaxed and casual atmosphere.  And fresh flower pedals all over the table are just such a romantic touch. It’s a dream afternoon.

Art of Entertaining

Chinese New Year is going to be Feb 16th.  And we are brainstorming a special tabletop for both V day and Chinese New Year celebration.  It’s going to a very feminine, romantic yet a cheerful color-palette theme incorporating Pantone Ultra Violet, vintage pink, some chinoiserie components.  And of course a lot of fresh roses.  Please stay tuned with us.

Casual Friday

fridayroomblue-french-dining-settee-round-salvaged-wood-table

After spending 3 days on the road, I really just love to chill out at home.  A cozy banquette, a table with flower print table cloth, an armed Louis XVI chair, Chinoiserie vases and tea pot…  Isn’t this room adorable?   Yes, pillows and a lots of natural lights make it even better.  What is your Friday plan?

Summer by the Pool

Summer by the Pool
Summer by the Pool

One of the most joyful things to do in summer is to chill out by the pool. Here are 5 tips to make the experience even better:

1. Bring indoor out to create ease yet elegant sensibility.

2. Have the pop of the colors to cheer you up.

3. Build  an outdoor kitchen or bar to entertain your guests in grand or humble.

4. Set seatings in groups to create intimacy.

5. Create stylish table vignettes your guests can appreciate and talk about.

Have a wonderful Saturday
