A Little Flair

Sharing A Table Set With Flair

The Posey girls took my 

basic black and white and kicked it up a notch.

Silver Chairs 

Dressed in Black Ostrich Feathers

Plumes of Gorgeous 

White Ostrich Feathers Overhead

They started with this 

very contemporary low vase.

To which they added a tall 

cylinder filled with white orchids.

Then topped it off with plumes 

of white ostrich feathers and more white orchids.

A sheer topper, with black velvet design, 

over a simple white cloth offered a bit of drama.

Individually wrapped speciality cookies

at each place setting are the perfect favor.

Change the cookie shape 

and this table setting 

could be for any occasion.

A Complete Table in 

Black and White

With Just a Hint of 

Hot Pink

Hi Sarah,
this looks spectacular pretty. I love the opulent and dramatic style. So elegant! Thank you for sharing. If I would marry in USA I would want to have a decoration from the Posey team.

Sarah, this is definitely a table with flair and a wow factor! I recently saw a table on Pinterest, I think that had a similar vase with feathers and could not believe my eyes - could be the same one. Thanks for sharing this - I love black and white!

Wow, this is really a showstopper! That sheer overlay with the black design is stunning and sets the mood -- not to mention the fabulous feathers and orchids! I love the idea of the decorated cookie and pops of hot pink, too. Very fun!
