Here are a couple of Cowie's infamous table setting ideas:
Mirror Wedding Table Setting
This mirror-themed wedding table is made up of sugar and spice and everything nice. In this design, Colin created a majestic ambiance by using royal shades of blue. The floral centerpieces were neutral because of his use of white flowers and green topiary. He added a touch of class by using tall candelabras, but the feature with the most effect was the glass tableware that gave off a luxurious look to the entire setting.
Holiday Party Table Setting
Talk about t’is the season! Here, Colin created a golden holiday setting and incorporated icicles to really give you a holiday feel! The gold accent chairs topped the look off and played off of the themed tableware. The candles are always a nice touch and here they served to illuminate the crystal pieces shaped as icicles. The fact that the room itself matched the table décor was also an added bonus. This is a great table setting idea for a corporate holiday party.
