our final assignment in maldives was to add color and light to a sliver of white sanded path beside dr ali restaurant. it was the venue for our client to hold a farewell dinner for his guests and because it was christmas, we decided on red and gold as the theme. paper lanterns and tea lights in paper bags completed the festive feel. to accentuate the colors, we first draped the tables with black underlays and used black chiavari chairs with matching black cushions. then we covered the tables with our gold sequined overlays and populated the tables with islands of roses in black magic and corona reds. we finished off the compositions by filling up vacant spots on the table with clusters of tea lights in red votive cups.
