I recently headed from Florida to Tucson with my husband for a business conference I was anxious to take in all of the landscape and southwest style. I have spent very little time in the Southwest United States, so I enjoyed taking in the sights of the desert. This isn’t a DIY or a tablescape, it is just me sharing some of the beautiful things I got to experience.
Attending a catered event is a treat for someone who enjoys styling tables. This was such a unique location for an outdoor dinner event. Simple lanterns adorned some of the tables to shed additional light as the sun set.
All kinds of succulents were displayed along with green trick dianthus and green hypericum berries
In one area unique silver vases were displayed with succulents and orange calla lilies. Colors were not limited to tabletops, this colorful wall was built from naturally colored stacked stone. The landscape and the view of the mountains in the distance was so stunning and different from what I am used to either in Ohio or in Florida. The mountains in the distance were striking, no matter what direction I gazed. Much of the food offerings were displayed in individual servings so guests could just choose those items they wanted. This is always a good idea when entertaining. When the sun began to set, all of the outdoor lighting added ambiance to the party.A stunning fireplace with soft places to sit all along the hearth was the focal point of a large round room at the golf club. My trip to the southwest was short, but I was certainly impacted by the lovely catered dinners I attended and the stunning landscapes. Do you live in the southwest? What are your favorite elements of southwest style?
