Ivy Robinson, my soul sister and quite the hip event designer, is famous for her bold use of color and fearless style (which you know I love!). She has a fantastic ability to always break the mold and create what's never been done before. I am a big fan of taking risks with design and color and Ivy never ceases to amaze me. She is a girl who can come up with a look on a whim and wow us all. Like she did below with her beachfront - no, sorry - wave-front table setting. Yes, she actually brought the table to the water's edge for this design challenge - talk about taking risks! Maybe not all of us can dine in the crashing waves, but we certainly can bring her daring style into our destination-themed dinner parties or backyard soirees. Be inspired, below.
