Table Styling on a Mountainside Main Street

Awhile ago I shared about our Park City, Utah, vacation, the place we traveled for my husband's shooting competition.  We were able to do so many other super fun things while there as well.  Park City is incredible! I have a lot of photos to share from their annual restaurant festival on Main Street that took place on a gorgeous sunshine-y Saturday! 


You all know that I get over enthused over a well styled table.  I appreciate the art of creating a center of beauty for the important time we all pause to nourish our bodies and spirits, as we gather together to simply live over a meal.


 The tables that lined Main Street were pure perfection!  I was in awe of every single one.    It was actually an "I'm in heaven" moment.  This is the only time I've ever been in a shopping area and NOT wanted to shop.  I was captured by the beauty of these long tables!




What an outstanding view to see a stretch of gorgeous tables in a long row lining the entire street for blocks!

 Each restaurant styled their own table.  I'm going to show you one million photos of these masterpieces, so enjoy the EYE CANDY.





 Cool serenity...

 
A little bit of playful happy...
Fancy glitter sprinkled under the mountain skies...




Chris and the boys walking past my favorite table...
Dancing aspen leaves and heavy cow hides...

 Lounge...


Western Wine tasting...



Clear party color...



 Seaside in the mountains...



 Take a bow...


Square dancing and boots...


 Hey, there's my three little sweethearts...

Princess of the East...




And the people: 
the buzz that awakens the streets

Grand pianos, tall voices, and colorful personalities...

 At your service...
...Outdoor cooking
 

 

Live music moving up the mountains...


...and the loves of my life.

Apparently, I'm not the only silly little one who is mesmerized by a perfectly designed table and stunning events.  I have met my constituency and am once again inspired!

This looks breath taking in the pictures, I can't imagine it in person. I know I would have LOVED to experience this! And, even more fun if with you.... the details are amazing and as you know, we both love our details!

It would have taken me forever to go down the entire street, I'd be memorizing all the details of the table. Wow, I can't even pick a favorite! How fun!!

You have a beautiful family!

I live in Salt Lake valley and My darlin' and I love to go to Park City. Somehow I missed hearing about this event. Drool!!! There used to be a department store here that held an annual competition for high school students with creative table settings! I loved that! Thanks for the visit!

Welcome back to earth, Lisa, because indeed you DID die and go to heaven!!!!!!!!! Wow!!! I am just breathless! You should have heard me up here in my office "oohing" and "aaahing" over those spectacular tables! I am a major fan of the long table. Always have been. Nine times out of ten a series of long tables is going to look better than a bunch of round ones. These photos demonstrate that well! Oh, my gosh! I am...I'm...I'm....speechless! This is amazing! I'm so glad you and your family had a good time and got to witness this heaven on earth! Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for sharing on Tablescape Thursday. This is the ULTIMATE!!!

What a wonderful event with fantastic tables lining the street! I'd hard pressed to choose a favorite but I'm partially the the constructed pergola with the hanging leaves & cow hides!

Barb @ GritsandGlamour said...
