When I began working with my client on the family dinner she was planning to host at her Upper East Side apartment, I immediately thought the perfect theme would revolve around trees.
This dinner will be the first time her adoptive and biological family, and in-laws meet. I wanted it to be thoughtful and feel special for guests. A tree can symbolize many things, including family. A tree sprouts from a seed, grows roots and becomes firmly planted in its foundation, branches out, and creates a new fruit that gives life to the next generation.
The elements I choose to represent this were acorns, rocks, LED tabletop trees, and magnolia branches.
