“I’m enamored with mixing,” says Bryan. For his evening setting, he pairs lustrous pottery plates with his grandmother’s sterling flatware. Beaded place mats and embroidered napkins add a bit of celebratory glitz. Here, he mixes three colored stems to capture the signature palette.
For fun place cards that are sure to get the conversation started, Tom frames pictures of his guests in past Mardi Gras costumes. “Whether it is an old photo from childhood or a recent snap, guests always enjoy such a personal and unique place card,” Bryan says.
