Jungle Fever

For a local fundraiser, we created a playful tablescape using a leopard stenciled cow rug as the tablecloth. Arte Italica dinnerware was the perfect choice with it's pewter rims and organic vibe.Ralph Lauren herringbone crystal wine glasses added sparkle to the table. Miniature bananas were used around the neck of the monkey to evoke a little humor. An overscale tropical floral arrangement, using birds of paradise, calla lilies and roses, added even more drama to the beautiful dining room. Dark glossy chocolate walls, the gorgeous antique mirror and a gilded ceiling reflected the candlelight beautifully. We are joining for Tablescape Thursday. Be sure you visit for other great tablescape ideas.

Arte Italica always comes up with amazing designs. The chargers are spectacular. The bird of paradise does a wonderful job of pulling the slash of red in the painting right onto the table. Thank you for sharing your amazing design. Cherry Kay
