This past September, I had the pleasure of working with Mimosa on a table top design they created for Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine. I arrived early to help determine the best spot for the table with regards to lighting. So I was able to watch Teresa Fung and her talented team work. Oh my! What a treat. They are such artists, only instead of painting with oils or watercolors, they paint in three dimentions with flowers and plants, with linens and tableware. As they were working, I observed and I documented; I was captivated.
Teresa had already prepped some of the floral before she arrived. In particular, the very time intensive work of attaching orchids to willow branches.
Some pieces had to be assembled on site. I was fascinated by these clear gelatinous balls that are nearly clear when you add water.
They allowed plants, such as these succulents, to appear as if they were floating in a glass vase.
Teresa is very hands-on. She would look at the design from every angle and make adjustments to the flowers or the linens or the glassware, seeking perfection.
Even the tiniest details were thought of. These miniature flowers were strung around tall vases.
Pinks of all shades.
Love the burgundy calla lily on the square plate. (Idea for Valentine’s Day?)
Gorgeous. Gorgeous flowers.
Even the linens had a floral feel. And Teresa had two options so that she could see how the whole look came together- one lavender and one this deeper fuchsia color.
Another look as the pieces are coming together.
Sometimes it just takes four hands to get the flowers to cooperate.
And finally, everything is complete. Simply magical. Love the arch and how it frames the candles and softens the wall in the background.
The vision. I couldn’t get over how beautiful this was. I know I would feel immensely special eating a meal at such a beautiful table.
