Kentucky Derby Luncheon on the Terrace

Lunch on the terrace was the theme of our last table on our recent home tour. Outside on the terrace, we used the home owner's hats to create a whimsical table. Using towers, we filled the layers with rose petals and chocolate ganache cupcakes embellished with red roses. Rhinestone pins held the angel vine and lamb's ear to the white napkins. The new pattern of dinnerware from Arte Italica was mixed with our red bubble glass stemware and antique tin salad bowls from France. . The vintage flatware works great with the Arte Italica dinnerware. White linen tablecloths with a black linen band on the bottom added a crisp note to the overall table. This setting looked exquisite against the home owner's beautifully landscaped backyard.
