Kappa Tablescapes 2017

by | Entertaining

Entertaining is my passion.  There is one event that inspires me more than any other: Kappa Tablescapes.  This gorgeous event is only two weeks away and is set to be one of the best to date.

Kappa Tablescapes is a unique, two-day event showcasing the best in Dallas design is very near and dear to me, as I am a KKG and chaired the event in 2013.  The even presented by the Dallas Alumnae Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma will feature more than 50 floral designers, event specialists and interior designers who have created over-the-top table designs to raise funds for local nonprofit organizations. There are several opportunities for guests to be inspired by all this creativity.

Tablescapes By Preview Events – Monday, October 17

There are several preview events that are an excellent way to see these stunning table designs.

3:00 – 4:30 pm   Sneak Peek Preview – Light refreshments included

6:30 – 7:30 pm   First Hour Viewing

7:30 – 9:30 pm   Tablescapes by Candelight

At both the First Hour Viewing and Tablescapes by Candlelight, guests are treated to cocktails and a generous hors-d’oeuvre buffet as they view the floral creations by candlelight at Dallas Country Club.  Event begins at 7:30 pm and tickets are available here.  This is truly the best way to view the tables and take in their beauty.

At each of these events, Akola, one of the beneficiaries, will be selling their jewelry, including a special “Kappa Collection” of blue pieces with a portion of the proceeds going back to Tablescapes beneficiaries.

A new addition to Candlelight is an amazing luxury travel auction featuring destinations like Alaska, Tuscany, Ireland, France and more!

Tablescapes Luncheon – Tuesday, October 18

This annual luncheon sells out each year in early June.  The Luncheon allows guests another opportunity to view the tables and also features an expert on a variety of topics ranging from Interior Design to Entertaining.  This year the featured speaker a designer that loves Blue on Blue as much as any KKG: Mark D. Sikes.  He is known for creating beautiful and timeless interiors that embody an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Mark has a talent for mixing American and European, traditional and modern, and new and old sensibilities.

Recently, Mark’s work was widely celebrated for the rooms he designed at the Kips Bay Show House in New York and the Grand Garden Halls at Greystone in Beverly Hills.  His new book,Beautiful, All American Decorating and Timeless Style quickly made the New York Times Best Seller List and shows design lovers “how classic can look fresh, how style and comfort go hand in hand.” You can order autographed copy of his book Beautiful here.
