About Me

Hi, I’m Christine “Bugsy” Drake, the creative mind behind Boxed X Bugsy. You might know me from my role on Bravo’s Below Deck Mediterranean, where my signature tablescapes earned me the nickname ‘The Queen of Theme’.

My Story

Now, you might wonder how I made the leap from South Africa to the vast open seas. Well, as a child, I was fortunate enough to go on adventures that sparked my passion for travel and being on the water. And that’s how I discovered my chief stewardess superpower: crafting the most luxurious, jaw-dropping tablescapes you’ve ever seen, whether it’s on land or at sea.

Boxed By Bugsy My Story

“Perhaps the greatest tablescape artist who has ever lived.” - New York Times.

“More is more! As long as everything is placed correctly, and your color scheme is on point, it’s always OK to go OTT. You don’t need permission to have fun."

Boxed By Bugsy Why I Love Tablescaping

Why I love tablescaping

With just a sprinkle of unique objects, a splash of vibrant colors, and a touch of texture, a tablescape can whisk your guests away on a whimsical journey through time and space, sparking lively conversations and a hearty dose of nostalgia.

It’s pure joy to watch the table come alive with laughter, storytelling, and a shared sense of wonder.
