The 4th Annual New England Design Hall of Fame Awards dinner was held this week at the State Room, overlooking Boston. In four short years, it has undoubtedly become the biggest night for the New England design industry. New England Home magazine founder Dan Kaplan created the Hall of Fame Awards and had the foresight to start big and stay that way. The event formula is basically the same every year – a crowded cocktail party, a sit down dinner (which is always delicious), flowers by the venerable Winston Flowers (see above) and presentation of the awards.
New England Home magazine Publisher Betsy Abeles Kravitz offers opening remarks. (forgive the image, it’s a photo of the large screen which was easier for me to shoot than the speaker herself, same with Stacey below).
An iPhone shot of my dessert. Yum!
Some of the lovely ladies I sat with – fellow members of my IFDA board.
And the honorees of the evening:
