Holiday Table Adventures!

This week is the Holiday Table Fundraiser located at the Wichita Center For the Arts. I was completely honored and excited to be asked to be a part of the event. For a couple of months now, I have been designing, searching, shopping, chopping, sawing, cutting, gluing, drilling......to come up with a natural theme that included greens, mustards and an aray of oranges. I wanted the space to feel warm and inviting as they entered in to their "Rustic Rendevous". Designing is truly my favorite aspect of the planning process and executing the design to see the final product
 brings me so much joy!
Coming into this event, I didn't think that I would be creating a design for a second table within 24 hours of the Preview party. I excitedly took on this challenge and searched through my house to come up with something not only different from my other table, but different from any of the others already set up. I decided that "Would you be Mine?" would be the theme and worked with silvers, reds, whites and blacks. I was thankful for the opportunity, and again, had a blast doing it!
My dear friend Mindy was able to be a part of the fundraiser as well and came up with a 50's theme. the pinks, turquoises and blues, offered a soft hue of colors that could not keep the guests away from the "Vintage Cheer"!
I hope that those who were and are able to attend are enlightened and inspired; not only by my two tables and Mindy's, but by the others table designs as well! There are almost 40 tables
at the fundraiser.
Everyone worked hard to make their tables great. I am so excited to share that "Rustic Rendezous" won the Designers Choice Award! I could not believe it when they called my name! Mindy received second, which I think she deserved first too, but they didn't ask me! So fun that both of us placed!
You can still go and view the tables and cast a "People's Choice award" vote! It is open tomorrow and Saturday from 10:00a.m-4:00p.m. Tickets are $10 dollars at the door. Wichita Center for the Arts is located between Rock and Webb Road on Central.
