Inspired by the still life works of Caravaggio, Michelle Durpetti of Michelle Durpetti Events designed a breathtaking tabletop in Florence for a joint celebration of anniversaries; her parent’s 50th and Michelle and her husband’s first. With the help of local creatives and a few from the US, the collaborative effort resulted in a stunning display of texture in autumnal tones that perfectly complemented the setting at the Palazzo Capponi and we are thrilled to see it featured on Inside Weddings!
“She was inspired by the still life paintings of Caravaggio and utilized a deep color palette of rich tones, along with seasonal fruits and flowers for the autumnal occasion. Though her husband is a professional photographer, Michelle didn’t want it to become a working dinner, so a local photography team was hired to capture the tablescape design. A combination of Italian and stateside vendors were brought in to bring Michelle’s vision to life. From fresh pomegranate fruits and cascading bunches of grapes to orchids and calla lilies, ‘all of it was a feast for the senses, which is exactly how I live to design events,’ she confirms.” – Inside Weddings
