From the photographer:

We chose natural elements like wood, various mosses, textured pottery and slate to set the tone at the table. Succulents, & protea helped amp up the texture level while keeping the color palette subdued. We didn’t limit sensory experience of the tablescape to visual texture though. The contrast of the rough natural elements with smooth colorless glass dishes & a slick Primordial Martini (white chocolate & hazelnut liqueurs with vodka) brings a sense of sophistication to the scene.

Pretty and yummy right?  Well it doesn’t stop at the delish signature cocktail idea, the “geodes” on the plates are a scrumptious combo of solid vanilla sugar crystals coated in white chocolate, and dusted in mixed sugars with a hint of sea salt. Every last detail from primitive pained rocks to wild wire around the hurricanes yields an awesomely modern and earthy vibe.
