I was so very lucky to attend the BASH Conference this past weekend in Phoenix, Arizona. #BASHConf15 was the first ever party blogger and event planner conference. This was an amazing opportunity for me to meet other bloggers who also feature party, tabletop and entertaining ideas and inspiration. The speakers were wonderful, the parties were fun, but one of the things I enjoyed the most was the tabletop competition the last night of the event. This was a premier presentation of creativity and skill in tabletop design.
My new dear friend, Latasha Evans of A Posh Party by Latasha created this spectacular tribute to classic Hollywood movie stars. I happened to join Latasha at her table, therefore I know a little more about her details. Substituting for place cards we each had an oval mirror with gold letters stating “glamourous”, “amazing” and more wonderful complements. Each of us seated at the table also received a crystal perfume bottle and long-stemmed white rose as a gift from our hostess.
This dazzling BASH-themed centerpiece mimicked the BASH Conference logo perfectly. This was created by Keisha Sibert of Cupcake Wishes and Birthday Dreams.
The contest was judged by Eddie Ross, Jennifer Sbranti of HWTM and Kim Stoegbauer of TomKat Studio. It was not the contest that made it wonderful, it was just having the opportunity to view all of these amazing tables.
Laura Aguirre was inspired by the Hollywood sign with her table decked with film reels, feathered fans, those sparkly “HOLLYWOOD” letters, a vintage camera and an adorable Shirley Temple cutout. Laura is the creative mind behind Laura’s little Party.
For me this table says “City of Angels”. The tablescape table featured gold and white angel wings throughout the design and each chair was decorated with a feathery pair of white angel wings.
The table below was the winner of the competition, earning Montrilla Jones of Lavender Pudding Event Planning a free ticket to BASHConf16! Notice the little velvet rope which surrounded her centerpiece.
I tried to snap as many pictures as possible before they insisted we sit down to begin our dinner. I hope you enjoy all of these and they inspire you to create amazing tablescapes yourself! I was amazed at this substantial centerpiece which anchored this table with its Art Deco theme.
Ashley Marie of Your Jubilee created this fantastic Hollywood Hills table. She went above and beyond with stylish Ghost chairs, a shimmery gold backdrop, and surrounded her table with a red velvet rope! Make sure you are invited before you enter!
This table glows with sparkling lights, both in the centerpiece and radiating out beneath the beautiful tulle runner. Kim from The Partiologist made her entire tabletop sparkle and glow.
The incredible flowers stole my heart on this table. This beautiful table was designed by Emily Cann, the woman behind B Lovely Events. Emily obviously has incredible talent when it comes to working with florals. Sprays of phalaenopsis orchids, dendrobium orchids and calla lilies were only the beginning of the touches that made Laura’s table so stunning.
Donna Martin of Swishprintables created this beautiful Hollywood tablescape around the theme, “Singin’ In The Rain”, complete with a lamp post at the center or her table, surrounded by glittery golden dancers.
How about this fun cinema themed Hollywood table? I absolutely adore those masks at each guests’ plate, don’t you?
Check out the detail of these incredibly unique menu cards and how they mimic the branch which anchors the centerpiece of the table.
Crystal candelabras decked with white roses and gold candles set the standard for Hollywood glamour at this stunning table. Gold flatware and gold sunburst chargers scream, WOW!
Unfortunately at this time I don’t have all the names of the participants to attach to their tables. If you were a competitor, please message me and I will update this information for all of my readers and link back to your website! If I somehow missed photographing your table and you would like me to add a photo of your table, let me know!
I will be sharing this at the following link parties: BNOTP: Tablescape Thursday
