Children’s Hospital Table Top Event 2017 – My Favorite Tables.

February 3rd, 2020

As many of you know, I am obsessed with anything party, so when this annual event rolls around in the spring, I’m the first to get my tickets. Best of all, proceeds benefit the Friends of St. Louis Children’s Hospital Endowment Fund for Camp Rhythm, a summer camp specially designed for children with heart problems. Why do I love it so much? Because so many fabulous St. Louis designers create spectacular tables that literally blow my mind! When I published St. Louis Entertains magazine, I also participated in this event and Sandra Fulton, our floral designer, created a fruit/citrus themed table. Here is a link to another blog post featuring this event. Click Here To See It

The theme for 2017 was special events. Special events such as baby showers, birthdays, holidays, weddings, etc. Each table chose the event they wanted to design and went all in! There were many beautiful tables, but I have to say, these are my very favorites. So without further delay, here they are!

Loving this gorgeous Thanksgiving Day table from A Floral Gallery. It has just the right balance of red, orange, and gold tones.
Ooooh… that tablecloth!
Yes folks, that’s a floral turkey… I mean… how creative is this woman??? Incredible job, A Floral Gallery!!
American Doll table by the folks at American Doll St. Louis. Very cute!
American Doll Table. Loving those adorable boot centerpieces.
This was a very creative woodsy baby shower theme created by Belli Fiori. I thought this was a clever way to get out of the pink or blue “box” and step into a very unique green and brown color palette.

Love the bushy green base. Gives the table a sense of fullness. The votive holders, which are raised off the table, also bring your eyes up to the main centerpiece.
The wood chargers are very organic while the moss green table linens give all the table accessories a great backdrop.
The chair had interesting floral decorations which were very organic and free flowing.
And here is the full table. It’s a WOW!!!
I also love the bark floral containers. Again, very organic. This concept would be great for a couple who love nature and the outdoors.
This beautiful table, created by Caroline Kelsey Flowers, is also one of my favorites. I love the choice of linens which make the china pop beautifully off the table. The distress floral container is gorgeous and all the natural elements are beautifully orchestrated. I found this table to be very soothing and relaxing.
Love the texture of the tablecloth and the touches of moss around the base of the centerpiece. Really well executed!
This table, by Cherree Berry Paper, which is a bridal shower, is classic and beautiful. The floral elements, created by Bloomin’ Buckets, look like something out of a magazine. I love the table linens as well.
Although I was not the biggest fan of this arrangement, since it looks like a hand with three fingers, I have to say that I thought it was very creative. The centerpiece is designed with vegetables, bread, cheese, fruit, and alcohol… all of the things I LOVE!! So, I would have been in heaven if I was sitting at this table.
One of the most talked about tables was designed by Cosmopolitan Events. Although they had a full team of vendors that contributed to their massive table, they did a great job fusing all the elements together and creating one of the biggest tables on display.
Love the backdrop of grass and flowers.
This gorgeous table was designed by the St. Louis Service Bureau. Each year they create a jaw dropping table and this year was no different. This bridal shower themed table is perfection!! Loving the dogwood centerpiece, which has cards filled with sweet wishes, hanging off it. The cake… the invitations… place settings… it’s all fabulous!
Loving the beautiful calligraphy on the place cards.
Isn’t this table ADORABLE?! Perfect for easter! Unfortunately, I don’t know who created it because I couldn’t find the card. But I just love how festive it feels. I also love that it’s not difficult to re-create. The simplicity of the details are my favorite. I love it when I find a table I adore and I can actually re-create it! Unfortunately, that’s hard to find at Table Top events since people want to impress the guests with crazy designs that either cost a fortune or are impossible to re-create unless you are an award winning florist. This table was beautifully designed and also non pretentious. I just love it!
This St. Louis Blues hockey table is a DREAM for a boy’s birthday. It was created by Exclusive Events and was by far, the most popular table at the event, which is ironic since all the guests were women.
Each chair had a blues hockey jersey on it, the centerpiece is actually created with four hockey pucks, and the table itself is the ice rink… GENIUS!!

How can you not fall in love with this beautiful table from Walter Knoll Flowers. It just screams SPRING!
Another beautiful bridal shower table from The Great Coverup!
Loving the miniature champagne bottles!
Fun table Happy Engagement table from The Sweet Boutique. I love the large balloons with sweet messages printed on them like “Love is in the air!”
This table was a SPECTACULAR!! And the most ironic thing is that it came from a vendor that does not do special events… not a florist, not a designer, not a special events venue.. but The St. Louis Public Library! It was absolutely spectacular. People could not get enough of it.
The place cards were popular quotes, the table cloth were made out of old book covers, the centerpiece was books with pages flying out of them and occasional flowers. It was BEYOND creative. If this event was a completion. THEY WOULD BE THE WINNER!
Yes friends, that’s a book tower with pages flying out of them!!!
Soft Surroundings sponsored this event and they had a large table with a carnival theme.
Cute Merry-Go-Round tickets wrapped each napkin.
I also loved the runner which was a collage of vintage photos of carnivals and theme parks. Really well done for such a large table.
This “housewarming” themed table was adorable. It was created by a local realtor, Shelly Owens, and she did a wonderful job inspiring guests on how to create a fun table without spending a fortune. The centerpiece is a grouping of adorable birdhouses. She added flowers and cute messages for a fun touch. Another table I thought I could easily replicate.
This was a very interesting table from Pure Air Natives. Very natural.
This table was SOOOO CUTE!!! It was from Miss M’s Candies. She did a wonderful job of bringing fun and whimsy to the event. It was so reflective of her branding.
Loving all the bunnies and ducks… oh and those plates!
Fiesta party from June Roesslein Interiors. So colorful and fun, made me crave chips and margarita immediately! Love all the colors on the table and the centerpiece.
Gorgeous Kentucky Derby party by Joya. I mean… it’s absolutely perfect!
BLUSH Events created this gorgeous pineapple themed table with a stunning color palette. This is the perfect table for for a bridal or engagement party… or even a wedding. Two thumbs up!

A Touch of Spring!

January 14th, 2020

One of the best parts of transitioning into January from the hustle and bustle of the holidays is getting a preview of the upcoming spring inspirations. Mary Tuttles, a floral shop in Chesterfield, MO, is a great place to do just that! The designers at the store create beautiful spring vignettes and floral arrangements that exude creativity, no matter the season.

Today, I want to showcase some of the beautiful floral arrangements and vignettes created by the talented designers at Mary Tuttle’s.

Gorgeous bouquet, filled with so many beautiful flowers. Especially love the arch over the arrangement.

Loving this stunning Juliska pacesetting arrangement with the preserved boxwood ball. A classic!
Bring on the Gerbera Daisies.. the perfect arrangement for spring or any time of the year!
This spring arrangement is like a ray of sunshine! Also, a bit deceiving since its totally silk. Low maintenance!
This Easter vignette screams SPRING!!! Loving the antler coat rack!
Who wouldn’t feel welcome entering a home with this adorable arrangement! I’m absolutely IN LOVE with this bunny in the harlequin container filled with tulips, dogwood, and carrots. The perfect addition to any foyer!
This spring wreath is PURELY STUNNING!!!
Hello pink gerbera daisy arrangement … you are gorgeous!
Black, white, and pink… need I say more! Always in love with this color palette and of course, a beautiful gerbera daisy!
Who doesn’t love a little DRAMA!!! Loving this beautiful Lilly arrangement!

Children’s Hospital Table-Top Event at the Ritz Carlton St. Louis

April 22nd, 2014

Each year, an incredible event takes place at the Ritz Carlton in St. Louis.  The Children’s Hospital Table Tops Annual Spring Event.  This stunning event is the most talked about event of the spring with very elaborate table tops created by local designers. Best of all, proceeds benefit the Friends of St. Louis Children’s Hospital Endowment Fund for Camp Rhythm, a summer camp specially designed for children with heart problems.

Here are a few photos from some of my favorite designers who participated this year.  There were a lot more table tops, but these are some of my favorites!!

Mary Tuttle’s – The Art of Living is a stunning store in Chesterfield Commons, which may just be the most amazing experience you will have, shopping for beautiful home decor, flowers, and fine china.  If you are in Chesterfield, make sure to stop by their beautiful store.  Their table-top was a garden theme with a variety of potted flowers and plants.  The Juliska china was a show-stopper!




The St. Louis Service Bureau – Is a beautiful non-for-profit boutique in Ladue, Missouri that benefits local charities.  If you love unforgettable stationery, unique home decor items, gifts, and jewelry, this store should be on your list to visit!  And the fact that it benefits local charities, is icing on the cake!  Their theme at the Table Top Event was the May Pole.  It was colorful, stylish, and a breath of fresh air!  Just looking at this table makes me happy!  I especially loved the mint julep cups and the long tapered candles.







Cosmopolitan Events is a St. Louis based special events planning company.  The team at Cosmopolitan Events are incredible at making their clients’ vision a reality! This year, they created a beautiful table with the most stunning color platte.


Wildflowers, a custom floral designer in St. Louis, created this gorgeous design… need I say more?!  It’s no wonder their  floral masterpieces grace the halls of the St. Louis Art Museum.


Last, but certainly not least, is Belli Fiori’s wedding jaw-dropper!  The entire design is dripping with opulence!  Orchids, hydrangeas, diamonds… seriously, what else can a girl ask for? Are those sequins on the tablecloth? I’m in LOVE!
