Flower Display Ideas For Weddings From Designer Kriste Michelini in Rue Magazine

Casa Quickie: It's No Picnic!

The new issue of Rue Magazine hit the digital shelves this week, and my browser is already bursting with bookmarked design inspiration. In one feature, Rue introduces us to Bay Area designer Kriste Michelini — whose home CasaSugar toured in October — with a visit to her studio (I'm guessing). As usual, the styling is perfection.

The vignette I can't take my eyes off is this floral arrangement. Kriste stacked one picnic table bench on top of its table and left its match in front, creating a tiered, stadium-seating-style display for pots and bouquets of gorgeous Spring flowers. The look is impractical for a home setting day in and day out, but it would be marvelous at a wedding or another event. You could use the table as a sign-in spot for guests, a place to stash gifts, or just as a pretty focal point.

This kind of obvious yet genius design idea reminds me why lovely ladies like Kriste are making a living out of design . . . and I'm typing away on my Macbook. But, we all have different skills, don't we?

I was looking for ways to use my picnic table as a produce/flower stand, without investing much money and this looks perfect, not to mention it's cute as hell!
