This table by Canvas & Canopy & Floral Palette evokes a relaxing, spa-like experience with its soothing palette of soft lavender and shades of blue. The plate chargers are sliced tree trunks with concentric circles resembling calming pools of water. Even the table runner resembles a Turkish hamam (bath). Hammocks surround the table for guests to lounge in and serve as a creative canopy above. Added spa touches include herbal tea and steamed hand towels infused with lavender. The thistles, sprigs of herbs, and natural woods play off the camp-style setting. Featured in the Fall/Winter 2011 issue of Exquisite Weddings.
