—drumroll please—

We’re delighted to announce the winners of Rosanna’s 2016 Tablescape Contest! This year’s entries were seriously Next Level—they gave us new ideas about how to make Rosannaware pop and shine.

But you didn’t come here to listen to us gush; without further ado, here are the winners!

First Place

Katie Collins

Inspiration: Sweet Love

Katie, what a darling design! I love how you used our Trinket Tray heart trays as bases to add a different shape to the display. Your pairing of the “HELLO” and “LOVE” ceramic signs from our Word Play collection was a fantastic idea that proves your point perfectly—Valentine’s Day isn’t only for lovers; it’s to celebrate everyone you love.


Katie’s Statement:

"Valentines Day is my most favorite holiday of the year! I knew right away I wanted to design something that represented how I feel about a day that isn't just for romance, but for sharing how you feel with everyone who brings love into your life. I thought about my amazing friends, their adorable children, my incredible boyfriend, supportive parents and even my warm cuddly dog Carlos. We kept things youthful and fun and made sure you could eat EVERYTHING on our sweet table. Afterall, LOVE IS SWEET! xo Katie"



Second Place

Jenny Keller

Inspiration: Fall

Wow, Jenny, what a sumptuous, gorgeous table! The rich, autumnal tones and varied shapes of gourds and other props create a feast for the eyes and an unmistakable sense of fall bounty. We’re inspired and delighted to have received your submission. -Rosanna 

Jenny’s Statement:

"My favorite season of the year is fall.  I love everything about it.  The weather, the recipes, the colors, the crisp air, all of it.  I created this tablescape inspired by both Halloween and Thanksgiving, filling it with pumpkins, leaves, rustic colors, classic fall desserts and plenty of rich texture.  It's one of my all time favorite tables!"


Third Place

Christie Galitsky

Inspiration: Anti-Valentines Day

Christie, your use of Rosanna product is wonderfully understated and sophisticatedly fun. The bright red strawberries wonderfully offset the gold and white of the Luxe Moderne flutes and the D’ore collection trays and bowls. Cheers to you; you set just the right tone for a fantastic, “non-cheesy” Valentine’s Day. -Rosanna

Christie’s Statement:

"Four of my single friends decided to get together, make dinner, have some cocktails and just relax in my home for February 14th. I wanted to stay away from cheesy Valentines-y decor, but I loved the pop of red from the strawberries and San Pellegrinos as a nod to the holiday. Each place setting came with a boozy chocolate (you can actually get a little tipsy on these) and a bow-shaped napkin. I used a Rosanna compote for the centerpiece on the table, and Rosanna champagne glasses, tray and a few other accessories at the cocktail station. It was one of the best anti-Valentine Days I've ever had!"



Honorable Mention

Paige Smith

Inspiration: Easter

Paige, wow what an elegant Easter look you’ve created! Presenting individual cupcakes for each guest on Décor Bon Bon Hue mini pedestals is a wonderful touch that makes your table that much more special and unique. After seeing yours, my mind is hopping with all kinds of ideas for my Easter table this year. -Rosanna

Paige’s Statement:

"My inspiration of an Easter-theme table for my girlfriends to celebrate Easter with a weekend brunch features our favorite furry animal — bunny rabbits! An image of a bunny is featured on the gallery wall, linen napkins at each place setting and a life-sized rabbit figurine makes a whimsical visit to our table. Each guest is treated to a vanilla strawberry cupcake, which is displayed under a glass dome and elevated on a Rosanna Décor Bon Bon Hue Mini Pedestal stand. Decorated Easter eggs are sprinkled around the table for a final special touch."
