HC&G Hosts 8th Annual VIP Tabletop Competition at the 2019 Hampton Classic: See All The Stunning Tabletop Designs!
The second place ribbon went to Bridgehampton Florist (below), whose table featured blue and white porcelain interspersed with blue and orange blossoms.
CMC Bridge, a private family table, took third place (below). Their table featured carousel ponies dancing through loops and bows of ribbons, and all of the flowers shown on the table were from the family’s own garden.
Many designers featured themes inspired by the event, so that stirrups, bridles, trophy cups, statues of horses adorned many of the tables. Some companies played off of their logos – Doha, sponsor of the day’s coveted $300,000 Grand Prix had a suitably sleek futuristic theme, and passing guests were left to puzzle what gifts might be found in the signature orange goody bags placed at each seat of the Hermès table.
Joanna Feffer created an incredibly exotic table design inspired by the Amazon.
Some tables focused on a particular blossom. Nestled among hydrangeas in rustic boxes on the Borg/Newman table, bright sunflowers were repeated in caps at each place setting.
Mane n’ Tale wowed us with handprinted plates and glasses (above). HC&G’s table (below) was designed by Elizabeth Dow Home which features a sophisticated gray palate, with chairs covered with fluffy lambskin.
Firefly Farm reassembled their buffet tables to form a central seating area, and the Bikoff Equestrian table designed by Sasha Bikoff (below, whose table took first place in the 2018 VIP Tabletop Competition), featured grassy green faux-sod French chairs by Olf Outdoor.
Overall, the event was fabulous, as usual, showcasing the best in entertaining, style and design. Congratulations to all of the winners and participants. For more HC&G visit HERE
