During the second day the designers were required to make two assignments. The first was a table arrangement, named 'Green Tea for Two'. On a round table they have to create their masterpiece in two hours time, taking into account that the maximum height is two meters. The second preliminary event is a bridal bouquet with no size restrictions, but obviously the 'Oriental Pearl Bride' must still be able to carry the designers creation.
Assigment 3 - Green Tea for Two
My point of view has been to create a table which is alluring every single watcher to sit and have a nice cup of green tea. I base my flower part of the table setting for soft, hanging lines and for the big amount of small details. I used black, red and gold plus a small amount of green colour on the table. The impression will be extravagant.
I would invite every single watcher to my table. If I manage to create a table setting that everybody would like to sit at and have a cup of tea, I have succeeded.
What level of standards should products used in table settings meet? Which choices have you made?
Table setting has to be realistic and the level of standard in products used has to be high. I will use silver, hand made silver goods, authentic French lace and flowers which fit well with these elements.
I’m using lot of pearls in my bridal bouquet. My bouquet is a game with flowers and pearls.
Silversmith has created for me a bouquet holder which is something akin to Victorian bouquet holders from back in the 1800’s. I use wiring and taping, weaving, stringing and glueing. I found these techniques as well fitting for this type of bouquet.
I have always been interested in old fashion types of bouquets and that’s the reason why I’m doing this kind of bouquet.
