Same old party place? It's time to think outside the box. Business dinners or social affairs need to kick it up by creating conversations with table design and unexpected venues. We found a super fun industrial setting in St. Louis south city area. The space is an old bakery kitchen with large industrial block wood tables. First, a personal touch with the chef cooking and serving in the same space. The decorating issue was everything in the space was so big. The table setting seemed to shrink in comparison. However, by adding variety and interest we managed to pull it off.

Dinner parties...are they a thing of the past? I say not! Conversation and friendships are the ultimate in memory making whether it's with family or friends. Really, don't you have the best time giggling with your sisters about the family dinners?! And who doesn't enjoy a little dress up now and then. Make sure your table is dressed for the occasion with linens, crystal and silver candlesticks. Try something fun by using colored candlesticks. Don't forget the special touch of flowers. #codykrogmanphotography #party mosaic #warwickallertonhotel #dinnerparties
Every bride has her passion and fun-o-meter. This bride loves the cowgirl look. The challenge is to keep the details unexpected. The table settings included colorful runners, centerpieces were hats and boots filled with greenery, colorful buds and succulents. Place settings were bright mosaic dishes and matching cotton napkins in yellow or green. The mason jar glasses were dressed up with copper wire tied off in a lariat rope style. To add a surprise! we hired professional dancers to help brush up on our line dancing and swing dancing steps.Cody Krogman Photography
Circus theme wedding fun! Tables were set with cabana hot pink(bride's favorite color) and white striped tablecloths. Each place setting began with a hot pink trimmed linen napkin folded in a pin wheel shape and a light up yo-yo. The napkins were folded at 4AM the morning of the wedding...out of a dead sleep I sat straight up in bed, startling my dogs and realized I had forgotten to fold them. Love me some strong coffee!
