Homeira Goldstein likes low centerpieces, so you can look into the eyes of other guests. Or, go for one thats very tall and narrow that doesnt interfere with your line of vision, she says. For a dinner honoring artist Lita Albuquerque, Goldstein set the scene with four tall white vases purchased from Z Gallerie. The vases varied in height and were topped with a blue foam ball. Lita had just come back from placing blue spheres in Antarctica, and I wanted to design a tabletop to resemble her project, Goldstein says. Interspersed between the tall pieces were square glass vases with moss or white hydrangeas.
