Party of Six

Elena Ray.

Fete-worthy tabletops for a half-dozen occasions.

Six designers, six occasions … and countless reasons to host a glamorous get-together with a table that’s all decked out to impress your guests With mild days and a deliciously cool evening breeze, home entertaining is finally back in full swing. Borrow ideas from the experts on these pages and make yours one of the best-dressed tables in town, from brunch to cocktails to an outdoor barbecue.

The six model homes at Andalusia at Coral Mountain — with their varying styles, natural light, and opulent décor — made an ideal backdrop for our six designers to work their tabletop magic in a true home setting. For more inspiration, reserve your place at Fashion Group International’s annual tabletop event on Nov. 15, where these six designers and many more will showcase a glamorous array of  table-ready settings. This year’s FGI affair, “Red Haute Hollywood Evening” at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa, will feature a fashion show, dinner, and dancing, in addition to designer tabletop displays — all to support scholarships for students who wish to pursue careers in the fashion industry. That’s one reason to raise a glass and celebrate this season . We’re sure you’ll think of many more.

Lighting up the grill shouldn’t mean a jumble of plastic utensils and disposable tumblers. Cheers to alfresco dining that’s high on style.
