With a color blocking design and a bold color combo of pink and purple in mind, celebrity event planner, Preston Bailey transformed an otherwise simple ingredients (like a long table and chairs) into a bright unforgettable tablescape. Delicately woven ribbon chairs and a ribbon table runner created tons of texture while ribbon flower rosettes hanging from clear fishing wire gave the table some serious height.
