Lekiah over at Events-Ualities Blog was a lucky lady recently. She had the opportunity of participating as one of 33 table designers for the Family Tree’s 19th annual Great Chefs’ Dinner. Regarded as one of Baltimore’s finest culinary traditions, this year’s dinner showcased Chef Alexandra Guarnaschelli, of the famed restaurant, Butter, in New York City. You may have also seen the chef on Alex’s Day Off on the Food Network.
Well, Lekiah needed a "New York State of Mind" themed table design and didn't she hit upon the fabulous idea of using the hit AMC show Mad Men as inspiration. (If you don't know this show, come down from your otherworldly planet and join us.....)
Vintage themed table? Of course! My absolute favorite part of her design were the giant lamps in the middle of each table. I still have those in my garage ...with the orange glass body, plastic bases and white shades...
I hear a cocktail been mixed somewhere...excuse me.
Have a drool over these photos and then head over to her blog to read the full details and see more photos.
