We were asked to participate in the 20th Annual Junior League of San Francisco Home Tour in the Marina District.  Our inspiration for our tablescape was the fabulous international human rights barrister, Amal Alamuddin and her marriage to the actor George Clooney.
On the 29th of September 2014, Amal and George married at Ca’Farsetti, Venice, Itlay’s City Hall.  Amal’s incredible “after wedding dress” was designed by Giambattista Valli.  The dress features a bell skirt and white lace with floral appliqué in bright coral, pink, and purple.  Gradual high to low style hemline, with a shorter length in the front is accentuated by pleating at the waist which gives a fresh chic design.
We imagined that upon Ama’s return from her wedding adventures with George, she has invited her closest friends Cindy Crawford, Julia Roberts, and Anna Wintour to a tea party!  The table is adorned with custom tablecloth of white lace and floral appliqué overlaid with coral, pink, and purple ribbons.  The table is set with gold rimmed hand painted antique china.  The modern gold chargers and flatware with Juliska drinking glasses give the table a crisp clean design.
