"Life is so Delicious" with Show Me Decorating Step Three

by showmedecorating |  | 1 comment

Show Me Decorating's Step by Step techniques apply to "Life is so Delicious" ladies event!

Step Three. Food Table Scapes.

No event is complete without food, and we will show you how to create a more inviting and interesting table scape with unusual containers, risers and fun! We coordinate our decorating with our theme of "Life is so Delicious", black and white paisley and check then punch it up with bright colors from our napkins!

Paisley table cover (vinyl purchased at Hancock Fabric's) is placed over a black floor length cloth. Serving pieces are gathered from our collection of black and white. Iron plant stands hold the black and white trays (Courtly Check from McKenzie Childs) and ceramic bowls, add height and interest to the table. The iron garden girl is dressed for the occasion with a tissue and cellophane apron accented with ribbon and wooden spoons.

The colorful Gerber daisy topiaries were borrowed from a recent wedding and are made with styro foam balls, moss and silk Gerber daisies inserted onto a wooden dowel. The dowel is set into a florist bucket with plaster and then placed in a plastic garden pot with green moss filling in the base.

Southwestern cheesecake takes a starring role on this tablescape.

We repeated the iron plant stands on our main serving table to hold the Ramen Salad and dressed up a plain basket with one of our bows. Learning the basics of bow tieing from our Show Me Decorating app is great for holiday and everyday occasions!

After dinner its time for coffee and dessert and we could quickly reset our table with black and white tiered dessert holders and trays.
