With over 50 tables at the Veranda Magazine sponsored Lenox Hill Gala 2015, it was a visual feast with endless entertaining inspiration. Carolina Irving created a casually chic table for Oscar de la Renta Home.
Their charming new artichoke plates, combined with red striped tablecloth and ODLR Home Indigo Ikat Dot napkins, proves that unpredictable pairings makes for a visually interesting and inviting table. Wonderful florals by Rambert Rigaud reinforced the smart country style. Whether in Connecticut or Punta Cana, any guest would be delighted to sit at the understated chic of this table.
Kate Rheinstein Brodsky (whose impeccably stylish apartment is in ELLE DECOR this month) for KRB designed an enchanting “In the Beginning…” table that evoked the alluring lush greenery of the Garden of Eden.

Translating her wrapping paper used at her shop KRB into a fabulous tablecloth, she worked with Plaza Flowers for the flora and Livia Cetti of The Green Vase for the charming hand painted snails. William Yeoward moss colored hand blown glass leech bowls served as vessels for black goldfish.
Jane Scott Hodges’ “Wild Vines” table for her company Leontine Linens, was inspired by the “lushest gardens, the perfect place to gather and celebrate the warmth of spring.”
The spectacular centerpiece by Sebastian Li reinforced the theme while the table cloth, dinner napkins, chair covers and Pearl Favor Boxes showcased Leontine’s couture custom capabilities.
McMillen Inc. made great use of the color of envy for their Paradise Lost table. Various shades of green with pops of black and white expressed the irresistible temptation in the forbidden garden of paradise.
Under a creative centerpiece by Botanica, a wonderfully graphic Zoffany fabric served as a tablecloth fabricated by Anthony Lawrence-Belair. And seat covers of Pierre Frey and Osborne & Little fabrics with Samuel & Sons trim, cleverly reference the garden’s evil influence.
Evocative napkin fabric from Stark completed the picture.
And his handsome dinnerware in Thomas in Pearl and Charlotte in Celeste Bleu added lively layers of color and pattern to the mix. You can see more of Michael’s dashing table settings in his entertaining guide An Invitation to the Garden.
Jenny Wolf Interiors‘s gracious yet approachable designs translated into a stylish “Flora and Fauna” table. You may remember Jenny’s chic vignette from this year’s Room with a View. A rustic chic centerpiece by Petal by Pedal with Veere Grenney’s classic Woodperry print on the tablecloth (fabricated by Sandringham Ltd) set the tone.
Herend’s timeless Princess Victoria china took on a more casual air paired with rattan chargers, gorgeous monogrammed napkins by Leontine Linens and embellished twig napkin rings. Charming placards by Alexa Pulitzer added a final subtle touch of understated bling.
Paired with l’Objet’s Han in gold, the table was a luxurious artistic expression.
