The first day of spring is right around the corner and we’re ready to see the gorgeous flowers that the warmer weather is sure to bring. Inspired by the colors of the desert sunset, this tablescape, as seen on Style Me Pretty, features some of our favorite spring blooms like poppies, ranunculus, king protea, camelia and kalanchoe leaves. Our pillar candles tucked between the vivid floral arrangements complement the look perfectly.
First, let’s set the scene. This thriving oasis amid the arid desert almost makes you feel like you’re looking at a mirage, but rest assured, this little slice of heaven actually exists! The Oasis of Mara, a 9,000-year-old oasis surrounded by the Mojave Desert and Joshua Tree National Park made the perfect, scenic backdrop for the shoot. Photographer Oliver Fly says, “Inspired by the contrasting textures of these two environments, I sought to the capture the magic of the Oasis and the lush green palms of the oasis juxtaposed to the dry, spiky outlines of the Joshua Tree.”
For the table, the design team used a desert sunset color palette to contrast against the greens palms of the Oasis. Florist Hollyflora used glazed white ceramic containers to hold spring blooms like poppies, ranunculus, king protea, camelia and kalanchoe leaves. A clean, industrial feel came from the rose gold colored tolix chairs from Found Rentals and complemented perfectly the rose gold flatware from Casa de Perrin. Dinosaur Egg Geodes were mixed in the floral centerpieces of the table and added a hint of desert texture. Our pillar candles were the finishing touch to this dreamy tablescape.
