Rhapsody in Sand: Real Party

Summer will be here before you know it! Even if you can't get to the beach, this party has the details that bring the season to life.


The circular menu cards reflect the design of the china and sit just inside the rim.  They were individually cut with a circle cutter in two colors of brown and tan.  The printed shell design follows the curve of the hand cut circles and is in the same color scheme.  Napkins rings are made of natural leather cord with custom metal ringed tags which were tea stained and punched.

Crisp white linens set the stage for the natural color scheme reflected in the soft tan and brown candles, sand, and shells.

Once the sun set, the centerpieces took center stage.  Glass cylinders filled with sand held various sizes and shapes of pillar candles.  Shells and battery operated flower lights added another element to the tablescape.  Their warm yellow light created depth and drama on the white linens.

These details would be at home at a corporate dinner, wedding reception, or contemporary birthday party.
