Summertime small dinner part

Summertime in Santa Barbara is always a good time to get together with friends. I created these pieces to compliment the lush grounds of this estate. With an all white/green theme they turned out beautiful. 

I wanted to create a very "ruffled" romantic look. I used groupings of white avalanche rose, white hydrangea, white lisianthus, and green docked pieces of bells of Ireland, with fresh ivy geranium leaves as well some green pittosporum leaves. I added the fern curls as a last minute thought just to add a little something different.
What you can't see from the picture was this outdoor covered patio area had these beautiful wooden beams, they were the same color as the long wooden container. My client requested that the piece very low as she wanted to be able to see her quests from across the table. She used rattan place mats with turquoise linen napkins, and hand made turquoise stone napkin rings.  I'm sure it all came together just beautifully.
