At long last, here are the photos of the Showroom dressed up for Tabletop Market with flower arrangements!
We used a lot of red & white, since the larger retailers are focused a season ahead and already have visions of Holiday 2014 dancing in their heads.
However, we couldn’t resist mixing in some Spring beauties – lilacs, dogwood blossoms and pussy willows made an appearance, as did a dramatic dark purple Lenten rose.
Here is a showstopping arrangement – spirea, roses and lilies in an Annette Vase. Really stunning!
Below in the fore front is the Lenten rose mentioned earlier. The name Lenten rose was coined because it flowers in the early spring, during the period of Lent. Thanks to Clark Bohorfoush for identifying it for us! During the same week as Tabletop Market, I spotted a similar Lenten rose blooming in Madison Square Park, right next to 41 Madison.
Boxwood placemats give a fun spring/summer feeling to the table below, even though the red and green color scheme evokes Holiday time. It’s a table for all seasons!
