A Christening Dinner Tablescape...

A friend and fellow teacher contacted me recently to design a tablescape for a christening dinner she and her husband were hosting for her godson, Niko, and his family. Based on the table linens, I came up with a light pewter, navy blue and white color palette, and designed individual votive holders for each place setting that could either have a guest's name on it, or an initial(as we did in this case). The "N" was continued on the sash of the vases, which held monochromatic flower arrangements that ran for the length of the dining room table. The banner, a fab find on Etsy, continued the color scheme off of the table (Lisa hung it on the wall of her dining room).

It was so much fun dressing up your table, Lisa!(and it certainly helped that you have an amazing home to showcase my ideas :)
