Think Green & Herbal With A Modern Twist. A New Unique Styled-It Design!

Styled-It, Inc. provides educational workshops, where our attendees learn tips and techniques to stage beautiful and decadent sweet and savory party tables.

Our most recent workshop was a "Green" Spring Garden Party. This table was inspired by the bountiful spring vegetables & herbs, healthy choices and sustainability, by doing what's right for our environment. The workshop was held in a private residence in a scenic backyard setting!

This was an interactive and fun workshop, everyone made something for the display! A complete party table was staged using food, props and a backdrop.

We started out by staging three separate work stations and creating teams for each station.

The first station was a planting area where we created beautiful hanging frame boxes. These boxes where filled with herbs and edible flowers including Basil, Lavender, Rosemary, Thyme , Purple Basil, Pansies, Petunias and Marigolds. All herbs and flowers were used in our food prep and tablescaping and used as the focal point of our backdrop.

The second station was our food prep area, here we did all our cutting and chopping, assembled Caprese salads in mason jars, and put together a beautiful rustic Organic vanilla bean cake!

The third station was our dry goods area, this is where we converted Terra Cotta saucers and pots into pedestal serving pieces, wrapped napkins and silverware and created our food tags using slate pieces and soapstone!


Our table was a folding 6 ft. table that was covered in vintage twin size ivory Matelassé bedspread.


Props for table included Terra Cotta saucers and pots assembled to create pedestals serving pieces , wooded crates, an ornate mesh metal cake stand with the dome lid used on the bottom and the actual stand place on top for height, slate pieces with soapstone chalk for writing food tags and assorted wooden platters.


Back drop was constructed using inexpensive wooden trellis pieces and two hanging planter frames.
