The four tabletop styles bring the world into one room for 216 guests: "Seamless Horizon" for the Mediterranean, "Perfect Ring" for modern China, "Splendid India" for Southeast Asia, and "Majestic Fantasy" for classic European.
The long rows of tables creates visual order, as does the consistent scale of the tabletop elements in each design.
The "Mediterranean" style suggests the brilliant sunshine and blue waters of the Aegean Sea.
Some 500 glass "raindrops" are tied onto blue ribbons, suggesting a rainstorm.
On the tables, glass beads inside square vases suggest air bubbles, while white anthuriums arranged in arcs portray raindrops bouncing off the ocean.
Strands of glass beads draped over the chair backs continue the "raindrops" theme.
In the "Contemporary China" section, the decor keys on red and black; red is the traditionally "lucky" color in Chinese culture, while black represents the color of modern fashion.
The same anthuriums appear on the "China" tables as the "Mediterranean" tables, but here they are rich red. Bamboo stems painted black add drama.
The "China" tables key on the theme of the endless circle, the balance of yin and yang.
Seat backs are adorned with leather straps, giving a modern edge.
A rich ring of carnations encircles votives, continuing the "circle" theme.
Another Chinese emblem--the dragon--is suggested by the table linen, which features sequins representing the dragon's scales.
The third area--"Splendid India"--evokes the rich splendor of Southeast Asia with a palette of peacock blue, orange, yellow, green and burgundy.
Vanda orchids are the sole flower used on the tabletops.
The tables feature orchids, fruits and candles to suggest a Southeast Asian paradise.
Napkins are tied with vivid green cords accented with beads and a peacock feather.
Completing the "India" tables are "sari scarves" draping the backs of chairs.
Suggesting a royal dinner in 18th century Europe, the "Majestic Fantasy" tables glow with roses packed into tight globes.
The European tabletops feature a tablecloth in pink, peach and gold with hints of silver; sequins add glamour.
Bouquets, which mix a variety of colors of roses, are perched in antique, gold-plated vases.
White napkins are tied with a pink sequin ribbon and accented with a rhinestone.
Candle holders are gold-plated.
A "canal" of mangosteen, pineapples, bananas, cantaloupe, apricots, pomegranates, grapes and oranges beckons guests to sample nature's bounty.
