• Tablescape: Swift + Company

    POSTED November 14, 2019

Designed by Swift + Company, this bright, abundant tablescape creates an inviting setting for any special occasion any time of the year. But it is especially fitting as we tuck into fall. The peach and burgundy bloom flowers paired with seasonal fruits and vegetables offer a place to come together and give thanks for all of the season’s gifts. 

Swift + Company owner Elizabeth Swift Copeland prides herself on adding luxury restaurant quality food along with turnkey catering, design, florals and rental services to any setting—from “backyard to a ballroom”—in the Houston area. The company’s stunning décor, beautifully trained waitstaff, and personal touch from a bygone era set it apart from its competition. 

The featured photo shoot took place southwest of downtown Houston in Evelyn’s Park Conservancy in Bellaire. The park served as the perfect blank canvas to create a bountiful harvest tablescape. Nestled on 5 acres of green space, the park offers a place for visitors to “relax, reset and rekindle connections with the outdoors and each other.”

The flower arrangement includes burgundy dahlias, antique hydrangeas, blooming blackberry branches, wheatgrass, orange alstroemerias, peach hypericum and thistle. The pear, artichoke, pomegranates and figs strewn throughout lend themselves to the colors of the season, and the pumpkin place cards deliver a whimsical element that ties the table together. And while the place setting mostly sticks to traditional warm autumn hues, the cobalt blue stemware offers an unexpected pop of color to the table, sure to spark interest and excitement for a company holiday dinner, baby shower or cozy family reunion. 

Florals, candles, tables and chairs, flatware and napkins, and plates and glassware provided by Swift + Company.

NWM+E: What was your inspiration for the tablescape?


The event and catering industries accepted the challenge to create vignettes inspired by well-known fashion designers for the 14th annual International Live Events Association (ILEA) Denver Designer Showcase. This was the first year that ILEA partnered with the Denver Chapter of the National Association for Catering & Events (NACE), knowing it would bring a whole new level of opportunity to the table.
