“In this design, royalty meets whimsy. The inspiration came from an idea of a crashing chandelier in an Alice in Wonderland-like setting with oversized chairs and vibrant contrasting colors. Bahama breeze aqua shares the table with contrasting atomic tangerine pops of color.” Clever details include gown bustles on each table corner. Frames, broaches, and place-card holders in silver enhance the regal feel.
