On November 2nd, team DME went all the way to Portsmouth, New Hampshire to participate in Arts in Reach's 2nd annual Tablescapes charity event! It was an honor to be asked to participate in this event, AIR is a special program that provides after school programs for young girls and teaches them how to express themselves through the arts. They focus on those who have faced body image issues and help empower them through various types of art.
It was a pleasure being a part of this event, we got to see so many other creative tablescapes and meet with other great designers! We were also honored by winning the award Best in show! The tablescape design Dana created was titled "The Hunt".
"Inspired by the traditional English Fox Hunt this tablescape represents everything that we love about the holiday season. With the mix of rich tartans, rustic birch and elegant centerpieces this tablescape is sure to get you in the holiday spirit. Adding to the feel of The Hunt, pheasant feathers and weathered brass were incorporated throughout. These elements combined created a warm ambiance reminiscent of the after hunt brunch. Talley Ho!" -Dana
It was based on the English hunters who would come back from their hunt in time for Christmas brunch. The color contrast with the red and blues is gorgeous! Everyone loved the fine china and crystal on the table, the combination of all the bold colors really inspired everyone who looked at it. It was both welcoming and dramatic, without being too clustered with items. The Chronicle saw the tablescape and immediately came over to talk to Dana about "The Hunt" and how impressed they were.
We would like to thank everyone who was apart of this event with us and also Bloomingdales Registry on Chestnut Hill for allowing us to borrow the glassware and flatware!
