Just one week from today one of my most favorite Dallas events takes place: Kappa Tablescapes. It is the fundraiser for the Dallas Alumnae Association of Kappa Kappa Gamma and benefits local charities.
I was fortunate enough to chair Tablescapes last fall with my dear friend Amy Davis. The darling and talented James Farmer was our speaker. He regaled us with stories from his Southern childhood and wowed us with his designs and recipes.
Tablescapes is a two day design festival and not a single event: Tablescapes by Candlelight- the Monday evening cocktail preview and the Tablescapes Luncheon where a prominent designer or entertaining expert shares stories and insights.

Alex Hitz author of My Beverly Hills Kitchen Classic Southern Cooking With A French Twist is the featured speaker this year and will attend Candlelight. More than 1200 people to attend the two events.
Tablescapes begins Monday, October 20 with Candlelight. Click this link to purchase your tickets are at www.kappadallas.org. The luncheon is sold out but Candlelight is the truly best way to look and linger at the tables with your favorite designs anyway.
