Al Fresco Dining with Marisa Nicole Events

Happy Friday, friends!

Fall is in the air and wedding season is still going strong here at Marisa Nicole Events! At the beginning of the summer, our team took a moment to gather for an al fresco dining photo session (and to take new images for the “about” section of our website). The best part of the Marisa Nicole Events crew is that we actually know how to have a good time together and are pretty obsessed with yummy cuisine, so it was only natural that we centered our annual team photoshoot around family style mezze, wine, and a gorgeous tablescape.

To craft our tablescape, we started with finding a rad linen that matched our brand. When I ran across this linen from La Tavola, which prominently featured an easy, delicate design in coral and blue, I knew it just bad to be the base of our family style feast. We paired this colorful table with mismatch natural wooden chairs from Premiere Party Rentals.

After determining our base, we chose to fill our place settings with off-white china from Premiere that had a slight mediterranean/spanish detailed edging that created a unique shape. We layered these atop of a clean clear charger with a gold rim (swoon) and topped off the layers with a fab knotted linen napkin with just a touch of sheen. My favorite detail of our table was our cut crystal and blue glassware. The blue goblets, yet again, brought in the cool hue of our branding, while the crystal maintained that clean, fancy feel.

Enchanted Garden Floral Design came in for the win with gorgeous white blooms and fresh greenery. Varying potted fresh herbs stretched down the length of the table. We added taper candles to add in just a touch of glam.

After designing our tablescape, we turned our focus to our feast. We all love charcuterie and graze foods: olives, marinated peppers, cheese, grapes, cherries even caprese salad… If it looked fresh and yummy, we incorporated it into our meal. You can’t wine and dine without the former, so we popped open a bottle of pinot noir and rose to accompany our mezze. The rose in the cut crystal glassware perfectly added another hint of coral that we needed to drive home our branding (rose all day, ladies!).


We even popped a bottle of bubbly to start off the meal prior to relaxing over each other’s company and our family style feast.

We hope you enjoyed this shoot as much as we enjoyed sharing it! Most importantly, we would like to give some vendor love to La Tavola Linens, Enchanted Garden Floral Design, and Premiere Party Rentals for helping us put together this fabulous dinner party. We could not be more thankful. Oh, and don’t forget to check out our new updated “about” page here to officially meet the team!
