A few months back I taped a segment for The Black Enterprise Business Report on TV One that was all about essentials for entertaining with style. I was called to do the segment the night before it taped so I had less than 24 hours to scramble together a chic tablescape along with several useful entertaining tips! Because I had such short notice, I ended up renting most of the pieces I used also brought in a few of my own pieces from home. One of the points I stressed in the segment is the fact that it’s ok to mix and match your dinnerware to create a unique look. You can view the entire segment by clicking the image above and below are a few behind-the-scenes photos of the shoot! I also want to give a special thanks to In Bloom New York for providing the beautiful floral arrangements. Also – stay tuned for a get the look post inspired by this table design!
