Bone Flatware

Tropical is a design trend that has seen dramatic growth in the last few years. Living in Miami, South Florida, it is a permanent trend around here! In this lush garden birthday party, a blue color palette mixes with whites and greens to reflect the ocean and the earth. Bamboo chairs, tortoise shell vases and bone-handled flatware add neutral elements while Monstera leaves and slate blue cotton waffle napkins add a pop of color.

In this article, we're sharing a reception dinner that's gorgeously styled and planned by Anna Lucia Events, a boutique wedding and event planning and design firm based in Tampa and Naples, Florida. 


Whether you prefer light, bright and crisp or warm and inviting, we’ve got you covered. Scroll down to see what this elegant outdoor set up is all about.

Tropical outdoor table setting for weddings
Bone Flatware from Pialisa

Our bone flatware and blue cotton waffle napkins from Nuage Design Inc put a cool spin on this table setting, while the round woven charger placemat lends itself to a summery feel. We are also in love with this Indian handmade block print table linen! 


When planning a dinner, birthday party, bridal shower or wedding, it's important to add personal touches. The dinner menu cards did just that by incorporating travel illustrations of where the birthday boy lived in his life. This illustration in particular is from San Telmo, the neighborhood in Buenos Aires where the client lived for many years.
