We love being able to support amazing charities with our talent. One of our favorites allows us to design a beautiful table that fit a specific theme for that years annual event.
This was our third year designing a table for the Tables That Bloom annual charity event. Tables That Bloom is a luncheon and fundraiser that raises awareness and funds for The Foundation for Blind Children and the Delta Gamma Foundation. Held at the Phoenix Country Club there are between 20 and 22 fabulous tables designed by some of the event industries top designers and small businesses that hold the two charities close to their hearts. In addition to the luncheon provided by the in house chef at the club (always delicious, by the way) there is also a silent auction of some of the most fabulous prizes (bottles of wine, stays at local hotels, adventure gift certificates, dining experiences and so much more).
This year the theme was "Hope Blossoms". Each designer was invited to design their table to best represent what the theme means to them. Hope can mean so many things and we designed our table to be represent that hope is ever present. The circular greenery on the plates was to show that hope is like life, a circle that never ends. The copper was used to show that even though it, like hope can be tarnished, it can always be made to look like new. Each place setting had a small quote about hope and life to remind our guests that hope is just a thought away.
Hope encourages us to keep trying, to keep striving and to keep growing.
During lunch we were honored to listen to the story of Catrina Frost and her daughter Cailee. Cailee is afflicted with (and please notice we didn't say suffers from) a rare genetic disease that will rob her of her sight. This little girl and her family have an amazing attitude towards life and give all they have to enjoying every moment of every day to the fullest. Read more here!

We were honored to win the 'Best Representation of the Theme "Hope"' award! Thank you to all the vendors that helped make our table and the vision in our heads come true -
