A couple of weeks ago I posted about the Heading Home to Dinner 2019 dining by event held here in Boston. They raised an astounding $177K for Heading Home, an organization which helps combat homelessness.
One of the really creative aspects of this event, and one that’s unlike any other decorated table top events that I’ve head of, are the bar carts that are decorated. Doing an entire table for ten is a huge proposition for most designers in terms of cost, materials and effort. So, the bar carts became an easier entry to participation for many talented designers and industry professionals. Plus, these carts are then auctioned off over the course of the two-day event. Half at the opening cocktail party and the other half at the sit down dinner. Those who did the bar carts were so creative in their presentations and story telling. They are more than a simple bar cart, but truly design vignettes. I didn’t get photos of every bar cart, but here are several that I know you’ll enjoy.
If these posts have put you in the entertaining spirit, I have a great profile coming up on two new book releases – A GREAT PARTY by Boston event planner extraordinaire Bryan Rafanelli (who did Chelsea Clinton’s wedding among many other star studded events) as well as Ronda Carman’s new book ENTERTAINING AT HOME which features the homes and parties – with recipes! – hosted by some of the countries best interior designers. Both books are amazing!
On a personal note, I’m thrilled to introduce you to my new design assistant – Sansa Bark!
A year ago this week, I lost my little RoyRoy. It was a very tough year for me personally and I still miss him every day.
But I was also missing have a little furry friend in my life and the time was right to welcome a new little love.
If you notice a resemblance, aside from the fact that they are both short-hair red dachshunds, Sansa is RoyRoy’s great-granddaughter. She’s 10 weeks old and a total love. I’m in the throes of puppy training and I’ll admit – it’s exhausting! But I am so happy to have a cuddly warm little friend again!
