Back in January, my friend, Starr Miller, of Starr Miller Design, shared an opportunity to participate in a delightful event, aptly named, “Over the Tabletop”, as an assemblage of interior designers and other related specialists, were being asked to create a custom tablescape, for a benefit to assist the Ada Jenkins center. The center, is located in Davidson, North Carolina, and offers the surrounding community, a wide variety of services, from education, support for families in crisis, healthcare, food and many other worthwhile endeavors. Their mission is to “empower for a better tomorrow”.

My profession, as an interior designer, is to create beautiful surroundings for my clients. My avocation, is to help others live a beautiful life. When an event, like “Over the Tabletop” occurs, it allows for an overlap for the best of both worlds!
If you live in the Charlotte area, I do hope you’ll join me, on Thursday, March 11th, at 6:30 pm, to enjoy the view and to share in the joy. Ticket information can be found, by clicking on Here
While the real unveiling will be on that Thursday evening, the pictures, below, may give you a glimpse of what’s in store:
Not to be totally secretive . . . my theme or inspiration for my table design, is based on William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. A movie, made in the late ‘90’s, (as in 1999), with the lovely Michelle Pfeiffer, conjures up images of forests, fairies and fantasy. I imagined a setting, fit for Hermia and Lysander, as they plan their elopement, and thus, the comedy begins.
I do hope you’ll join me, to share the dream of a better tomorrow, for others.
A big thank you to those who have offered products and services for this event:
