Palm Beach Intl. Boat Show 2016

Aqualuxe photographed the #TopNotchTabletops at the Palm Beach Boat Show this weekend.

We started walking the north docks to find M/Y Sovereign's welcoming tablesetting showcasing gold dusted pineapples. This was the only boat who competed in all four categories. The stews also created the most beautiful succulent mini gardens for their outdoor table and propped their menu design right on it.

Next, we headed to Capricorn, 140' Proteksan Turquoise,  who displayed a chic-beach theme and we found out, one of the many tools Stephanie uses onboard, is "The Yacht Guru’s Bible: The Service Manual for Every Yacht" by no other than our esteemed guest & sponsor Alene Keenan from MPT.

Outta Touch, 105' Intermarine, opted for beads and a submerged orchid. Miss Helen from Nita K, a124' Delta, bedazzled with "The Seasons Aboard": a winter tablesetting on the main dining room, spring details in the skylounge and a fun summer affair on the bridge deck.

Astrid from Keiki Kai, 100' Benetti, decided to tell a story with her centerpiece, a treasure hunt, a sail wreck and 2 pirates that didnt make it to tell their side of the story.

Inspired by the seasons were Black Gold, 112' Westport, who created a St. Patrick's day Top Notch Tabletop with the most handsome Leprechaun Tuxedo and M/Y No Bada Bees, 128' IAG, with the most charming Easter decorations.

Some of the most elegant classic designs included M/Y Clarity, 160' Bilgin, M/Y Star, 138' Kingship Marine and M/Y Cocktails, 157' Trinity.

Bethany from M/Y Seven J's, 156' Delta, captivated our attention with a charming lunch setting featuring a tipsy chilled Gimlet with basil. Anna from M/Y Dream Weaver, 121' Ocean Alexander, dressed the table with shells and driftwood adding a pop of color with some beads; while Blind Date, 134' Lurssen, combined a floral with crabs and rocks.

M/Y Huntress, a 55m Feadship, impressed with a musical theme. A free-form style of musical elements conform the centerpiece, they tied in the menu with items like "Mozart-rella Cheese, "Let it Bees" Honey vinaigrette, "Jazz'min" rice, finished off by "Rhythm and Rind" "John Lemon" Cheesecake, and that is not all, these artists will join in busting a full musical performance and the night becomes a Talent Show Aboard.

Last but not least, we were transported to Italy to enjoy a feast aboard M/Y Gravitas, a 52m Feadship. Rita, Camille & Lizelle displayed an extraordinary tabletop including food elements, like bread, raw vegetables, fruit and capri salad sticks; completed with wine bottle candle holders and a vine runner. For their menu design, the crew's personalities shined thru; our favorite: Patrick's Drunken Mussels and Cam-Misu! You have to go and read it!

All Top Notch Tabletops were creative and every design had a different story to tell.

Good luck to all participants!

But let's not forget that the main reason for this event is to inspire and be inspired. To share your creativity and find new and resourceful ways to redecorate and repurpose your decorations.

I hope you had as much fun as we did. See you all at the Triton Expo in Bahia Mar on March 6th.
