A painterly study in luminous blue, the table is draped in layers of frothy tulle. Florist Anne Bowen combines blush roses, ivory poppies and Lily of the Valley for a natural runner. The scene is at once simple and graceful. Cake artist Jim Smeal  gives drama and dimension to a monochromatic palette with crystallized sugar that mimics the white sand.

Chargers mimic the glimmering surface of the ocean on a sunny day. Each place setting is layered in white and crystal glassware by Small Masterpiece.
