What’s a Tablescape, you ask?
Although tablescapes often adorn the center of the table, they are more than centerpieces.
Tablescapes bring your event together with color, style, whimsy, and dimension.
It’s eye-candy for your table!
"Our tablescape presentation offers attendees a primer on how to choose color, texture, and visual stimulation, which in turn leads to fun and interesting tableside conversations,” said Mary D’Agostino, the Atlantic Highlands Arts Council. “The combination of a photo-rich presentation and the hands-on element is a double header – a great opportunity to learn first-hand how to create a sense of balance, harmony, and personal style to suit your celebration.” Mary offers that this is a perfect meet-up workshop to be enjoyed with your family and/or friends.
New York's Leyenda Brooklyn Cocteleria Craft Cocktail Mixologist Jessica Wohlers, and me, will demonstrate how to take your cocktails to the next level with a tasting!
The next segment of the Workshop is a presentation I've prepared with lots of images and suggestions on how to build a tablescape of your dreams. Everyone loves looking at inspiring, Pinterest-worthy creations, yes?
I encourage attendees and at-home designers to explore your late autumn garden and yard - it’s beautiful! The added benefit is you get to enjoy your garden and maybe even discover plants you didn't think about at this time of year. There are flowers, twigs, seed pods, ornamental grass, and more.
