Calypso’s modern tropical pattern has equal appeal for weddings and corporate looks. This look was designed by Tami Winn Events at The Fort Worth Club.

For a more casual event, pair colorful tropical colored fabrics and florals for a clean and vibrant look that’s perfect for a luncheon or outdoor event. 


Play with Colors and Patterns

Blend worldly sophistication and simplicity by combining natural patterns and complimentary solid colors.

The mix of our sheer Leaf Graceful runner on tables adds breezy drama to the event space when paired with guest tables dressed in Calypso’s elegant palm-inspired print.

Accessorize to Finish the Look

Add a heavy helping of white with waxy tropical blooms, tall ceramic candlesticks, and chunky cylinder candles to complete the island look. Real pineapples add a traditional symbol of welcome and hospitality.

Simple floral arrangements add to the relaxed, yet elegant look and create a bold contrast against the solid green table runner.

This subdued scheme speaks of elegant evenings and unknown delights — an island escape that is decidedly uncontrived and overwhelmingly appealing.

Don’t forget the details: table settings can add island flair with clear chargers and greenery that’s reminiscent of the tropics.
