Design Director Wendy Sees Red

Related To:

Food Network Design Director, Wendy Waxman, got her latest assignment -- create a vibrant tablescape for a Food Network charity event featuring Chef Duff...oh, and make it kid-friendly. Wendy immediately saw red -- in a good way.

As the table came together, Wendy shared some great tips...

1) Bold, vibrant colors will stay true to you -- going bold works well all year long, whether the holidays or the 4th of July.

2) Pick a plate that's ready to take the stage. For this, Wendy fell for a rich collection from SoHo-based Global Table.

3) Let your creativity bloom. Wendy chose amaryllis and orchids from Ovando to complete her vision. A top-notch florist should always supply fresh product (and ideas, if you want them).
