NACE - top of the table

Every year NACE (the National Association of Catering Executives) hosts the Top of the Table Design challenge to raise money for the Food Shuttle. As members we team up and design a table to fit one of the year's categories. This year we partnered with Cleveland Plant and Flower and Grace Leisure Events, participating in the "Green with Envy" category! CE Rentals also provided the linens, chairs, plates, my most favorite gold stemmed glasses and Party Tables provided the awesome green overlay linen! THANKS team :)In the center of our table we spelled out the word ENVY with jade roses and green hypericum berries. This was Becky's fab idea and I think it is easily applied to a corporate event or wedding - spelling out the company name or the monogram of the bride and groom on their head table !!

Placed on gold napkins where our awesome menu cards created by Grace (perfectly bedazzled) and we accented them with a green cymbidium orchid!
At each corner of the space we had columns draped in green linens with an a very green arrangement on top!

We had a GREAT time and there were definitely some great tables this year! It is always fun to design outside of the box and create something over the top - it helps you come up with ideas for the next client :)
