Aqualuxe photographed #TopNotchTabletop at the Palm Beach Boat Show this weekend.
Aqualuxe Outfitting hosted once again the official tabletop competition of the season. Our judges, Julie Perry, the author of The Insider's Guide of How to become a Yacht Stewardess, Sara Trelo, Director of Business Development at Christofle, Jo Cooper, Placement Coordinator for Bluewater and Cris Clifford, designer and outfitter at Aqualuxe, hit the docks bright and early, judging the following 5 categories for creativity, aesthetic and overall design impact. And boy did it turn out to be a difficult task.
Right at the heart of the show, we started on M/Y Silver Lining, where Julie and Logan showcased an elegant and sophisticated table setting. Their tip, “Layering, the more the better,” was showcased with an elegant display. Starting at the base was a mirror placemat, a capiz shell piece and a Coral charger, topped with a starburst napkin ring of beads.
M/Y Siete created a balance between differently sized taper candles, incorporating calla lilies and beads. Chief Stew Mica and Carmen opted for a neutral color, accenting the interior. Tip of the Day: “Anticipate your guest needs. Learn how they take their coffee, for example, make them feel like royalty“.
Next up, M/Y Serenity displayed a clean line of orchids and a lantern surrounded by silver placemats, china and napkin ring accents. Chief Stew Kerrigan and Leilani’s Tip of the day: “Keep Calm and deep breaths.”
Chief Stew CC & Anna, made us hop like bunnies! They pulled out all the stops to compete in each category. Their outdoor tabletop showcased a napkin decoration made out of 44 differently cut pieces. We call this setting the Lily Pulitzer. For the interior setting, they opted for a French take on design. The menu was personalized with a wax stamp, and the drink of choice was a White Port, Gin and Tonic Martini. Tip of the Day: “Having onboard an extensive collection of wine. This app is the best! Download VinoCell. List, sort, and order your collection. It will even notify you when you need to turn the bottles.”
As we stepped into the dining room of M/Y Ionian Princes, we were transported to a Greek Island with a tantalizing menu and goddess statues...
