African Safari Inspired TableScape

I had the pleasure of working with Roy of Unique Event Management and designing a tablescape to showcase some of his Intelligent lighting techniques.  As we sat down to lunch at Subway, I glanced over at a poster of "The Lion King" that was soon to be released in 3D and this is where the tablescape inspiration came from.

I chose a color palette of deep red, gold, and brown.  I found some amazing wood chargers that I accented with Ivory dinnerware and copper napkins, with gold plated flatware.  We all love a little bling so I incorporated wooden beads to tone it down a bit and still give it a little sparkle.  I also added a couple of treasure chests and copper napkin rings.  I wanted to keep it earthy by sticking with earth tones and the animal printed fabric.  Here's a sneak peak at a few of the photos by Leslie Marie Photography.
