Here is a tablescape that was not only beautifully executed, but done for a good cause by Andrea Harrison of Tantalizing Tablescapes & Decor. Andrea explains the story behind the event and cause. (There's more information on contributors and the organization after the photos.)
"Earlier this year, I participated in the 5th Annual Powerstories 'Gift of Story Gala' which supports scholarships for middle school girls to participate in their Girlstories Leadership Program." The theme this year was "Theatre in Central Park."
"New this year was the 'dining by design' experience. All of the VIP tables were decorated by a local designer to provide the ultimate dining experience at the gala. I had the honor of designing a table to be judged that evening; and I am proud to say I won!"
The Marketing Posse was the table sponsor and made this design possible. Tantalizing Tablescapes & Decor created the table design. Heather Rowland, Owner/Operator of Beautiful Floral Designs took the floral design that I had in my head and created it. The candelabra was on loan from Elegant Events. Brandi Morris of Brandi Image Photography took the "professional shots". The others were taken by myself.
