Entertaining at the Rodin Museum

Written by Katharine Warden on February 21, 2013

We were thrilled to be asked to create the tablescape for a dinner for the members of the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau at the Rodin Museum.

This dinner was highlighting the museum’s forthcoming program.

We selected a color palette inspired by the lavender that grows in the gardens of The Rodin Museum.

Fresh Lavender, succulents and river rocks created a very natural and beautiful tablescape.RodinMuseum-4943
