Art of the Table is an afternoon of creative table displays by Indy’s best event designers and florists. This event was developed to raise money for education and scholarships for wedding professionals in Indiana. This event also honors one of its own, Betty Jackson, who died very early in her career and is organized by the Association of Bridal Consultants – Indiana Chapter. Snappening is a proud supporter and sponsor of Art of the Table and brings you a personalized blog series each year covering some of the “can’t miss” touches from each design. Part 1 of our series left our readers wanting more, and now we’re back to dig a little deeper with Part 2!

Art of the Table 2013 was held at the NCAA Conference Center. The designers and florists continue to impress, and 2013 was no exception. Each table encompassed the unique style of our numerous professional Indianapolis event designers and florists. Tables were decorated with an assortment of elaborate themes and elements—ranging from seaside fun to elegant NYE inspiration.
Table 6: Sophisticated Soiree
Cole Porter served as the central theme and “voice” for this elaborate 1930’s design. Our favorite touches included the silver gilt swans, placecards, chargers and the hints of chevron throughout.

Table 7: Rock and Seoul
You simply cannot go wrong with the vivid colors of a Korean-inspired wedding. From the dramatic linens, to the eye-catching Buddha centerpiece—the table designers mastered the look with professional touches such as chopsticks, place setting decor and apropo florals.
Designers: A Cut Above Catering + Cake Zen

Table 8: Rustic Glam Chic
The rustic touches throughout this design added flair and charm. We found the menu blocks (real wood) exceptionally exciting, as well as the wood grain detail on the placecards. The burlap accents on the candle holders in the centerpiece contributed to the overall design and helped carry the “rustic” touches into the chic design.

Table 9: The Story of the Glass Slipper
This table is any fairytale lover’s dream come true.  Cinderella and Prince Charming would dine in style at this garden-infused setting that tells the story of the couple’s first meeting—complete with a horse-drawn carriage and the slipper itself!

Table 10: Fashion Forward
 
Designed for the modern bride, this contemporary style caught our eye immediately. The concept incorporated the latest trends with mixed metals, florals and lace all appointed in cubes. We really enjoyed the use of the shapes on the menu as well at each place setting!
