Tabletops: Desert Rose

Want a bohemian desert feel with a Moroccan influence and a splash of glam. Here it is from our Fall/Winter issue of Exquisite Weddings. Created by Amorology & Twigg Botanicals it’s an eclectic mix of vintage glassware, mix-and-match flatware, cacti bursting from teacups, peacock feathers, camel tassels, and jeweled place cards. The turquoise with the vibrant pinks, corals, and bursts of red really sets it apart. And the beautiful array of flowers and trickles of bougainvillea keep it romantic.

Sweet Sahara: Shake together 1 ½ ounces Grey Goose L’Orange, ½ ounce Grand Marnier, a heavy splash of white cranberry juice, a squeeze of lime, and dash of simple syrup. Strain and put into a martini glass, add a lavender infusion to make it pink— remove 3 minutes later and serve.

Table designer: Heather Balliet, Amorology. Flowers: Robin Mathis, Twigg Botanicals. Linens: La Tavola Linens. Flatware: Archive Vintage Rentals. Place settings, stemware, and table: personal
