The Splendor of Italy

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

I visited the Flower Show at the Philadelphia Convention Center yesterday where Italy was the theme this year.

Rome was glorious with its columns, grottos, archways and meticulous courtyards.

Florence was a marvel filled with sculpture, fountains, floral displays and it even had a cupola!

Venice- the city by the lagoon depicted a luxurious palace and a classical Venetian boat the gondolaHow romantic it would be to have an Italian themed wedding!



It was love at first sight!

No, I’m not talking about the first time I met my husband- that’s another story. I’m talking about the beautifully showcased table I saw during my recent trip to Las Vegas while attending the Catersourse and Special Events industry trade show.


This table just knocked my socks off and stopped me dead in my tracks. From the moment I laid my eyes on it, I was love-struck! Everything about this piece was elegant and romantic. Ladies and gentleman I was head over heals in love with this masterpiece!


The table cloth was white ostrich feathers crafted by the amazingly talented LilyYeung of Wild Flower Linens. It had elegant displays of roses for the centerpieces, crystal chandeliers, candelabras, beautifully ornamented place settings and I can go on and on about all the splendid details but a picture is worth a thousand words. Here see for yourself.
