A Mod Summer Table Sets the Tone for a VIP Event


The texture of the Norman Arch leading into the historic Masonic Temple in Philadelphia inspired this clean, midcentury modern table.


This summer table fit for a special event, such as a chairman’s dinner, features a mix of midcentury design with modern elements. Carolyn Rizzo, head designer of Garnish, says this technique is easily accomplished in décor but challenging to pull off in event design.

A color-blocking tablescape adds depth and texture

In the 90s, low rents and large industrial spaces in Philadelphia’s Northern Liberties, once the city’s manufacturing district, began luring artists and entrepreneurs. This influx of fresh new ideas and business created an eclectic and progressive atmosphere that continues to foster creativity and expression today.

It is here, on the eastern edge of the district and bordering the Delaware River, that Beautiful Blooms designed a mid-day event for a large innovative software firm.
