EQUESTRIAN CHIC

The Annual Hampton Classic Horse Show is one of the highlights of the summer season.  Equestrians from around the world come to compete in this coveted week long event. I was invited to attend the Grand Prix on Sunday and it was quite a show both in the ring and in the tent!  Everyone dresses summer chic for the beautiful luncheons hosted under the tents.  My favorite table was by Fendi--crisp and glamorous with gorgeous white hydrangea, French champagne and bright yellow Fendi bags you know are holding something wonderful!
I thought this table was very chic-lovely turquoise chair cushions and a bright orange coral patterned table cloth are so stylish!
Last year's winner in my book. Love the equestrian riding hats and the silver cups filled with carrots-so clever!
Do you have a favorite tablescape idea or inspiration?

Love the orange too! Carrots look so cute with the dark hunt caps.

The first table was my favorite. Absolutely beautiful!
Anything to do with Fendi has to be perfect.
Have a nice day.

Wonderful pictures. I so wanted to get out there; we went every year when my older daughter was still riding. Looks like you had fun and the weather was perfect, wasn't it?
Best,
