March 25, 2013 Entertaining Essentials

Tis the season for Spring charity galas and I am so excited to be participating on the design committee for the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House Gala which takes place next week and is being sponsored by VERANDA! The Lenox HIll Neighborhood House is an organization that provides an array of human services to residents in need on the East Side of Manhattan. Each the organization teams up with some of the industry’s top decorators who each design a unique tabletop for their annual spring fundraiser. I’ll be designing a tabletop alongside names like Katie Ridder, Christopher Spitzmiller, Michael Devine, Ashley Whittaker, David Duncan, Lindsay Harper, Harry Heissmann and many more! Here is a sneak peek of my table design which was inspired by Doris Duke along with links to all of the items featured:
