Q&A with
Top Notch Tabletop Designer Chief Stew CC Childers

An Olympian & Chief Stew with an eye for Design

As yacht crew we wear many hats, join the conversation for everything tabletop at Sea & Land.
Meet Chief Stew CC C
hilders from M/Y Chasseur 160' (48.79m) Christensen, who joined yachting in 2013. Previously, she was on the US Olympic Sailing Team (yes you read that right!) and attended the California Maritime Academy. With a total of ± 20 years in the water, 10 (so far) in yachting, this is an interview you don't want to miss.

"While I no longer compete, I still follow along and support the sailing community actively and similar to yachting the networking from sailing has allowed me to create life-long connections and unbreakable friendships. In the end, I believe that being on and around the water is my ultimate passion."


St. Patrick's Day

throw back to some of our favorites!

Within a few steps from the passarelle, we found ourselves in a page of the book of Alice in Wonderland. In charge of setting up the stage to this majestic, awe-inspiring top notch tabletop was Amber Briant. Her depiction of this classic,  encompassed the most unique, detail oriented layout of  perfectly crafted designs, bringing to life characters only in your imagination. The foundation: an elegant white tablecloth and custom grass runner. Tea pots and tea cups, gold clocks, salt & pepper shakers in the shape of mini gold mushrooms, vintage tulip candle holders, blooming white & pink rose buds and the cutest bunny hoping frontstage, are some of the accents surrounding white & gold china layered over a wood plank, for that contrast of spark and forest woods. 
All while mixing & matching different scales and incorporating service accents such as a flower ice bucket, with shots disguised as magical potions.
Take the time to read the menu, every course has it's own pairing, meticulously printed over a vintage character watermark; it really is all about the small details. Chef Micail Swindell's  main course, Magic Mushrooms, was described as: Steamed Turbot and Fresh Truffle variations served with Forest Mushrooms, Edible Soil and Seasonal Herbs and Flowers. Can you picture it? 
Sitting under a magnificent vine, with dangling passages of the book, small notes written in bubbles that seem to float from above, the guests are invited to a magical evening onboard M/Y Unbridled. FLIBS 2015.
