Aqualuxe photographed the top notch table tops at the Palm Beach Boat Show this weekend.
From the polynesian islands to The Great Gatsby stage, the tabletops were creative and every detail, down to name tags and menu designs, coordinated with the interior decor and theme. We learned how to create a lit ice sculpture, that will have your guests talking for days and were dazzled with an Easter table completed with Easter chocolate eggs and a "Passport to a Spring" menu design.
ALL Top Notch Tabletop settings were fabulous!
From asymmetrical bold designs to simple organic elegant presentations.
We invite all stews to share the links and vote for your favorite settings in 4 categories:
Thank you for sharing your tablesettings and tips with stews around the world.
And THANK YOU to all our sponsors!
Thank you for your interest in awarding the creativity and design that each Top Crew creates and spreading the word.
