I continue to share my pictures taken at the annual holiday tables showcase in November 2011 in Lakewold Gardens, a historic Northwest estate.
'A Winter Celebration'
This table was presented by the staff at Drees of Olympia. They used hand-beaded chargers, ivory wedgewood dinner plates, artisan-formed and fired first course bowls.
This table was a winner in the Professional - Season/Holiday category.
It also got a second place in the People's Choice Professional category.
Designer Bonnie Stromberg (Selden's Home Furnishings) used Lenox 'Urban Lights' china for this elegant setting. It's a winner in the Professional - Contemporary category.
'Before The Fireworks'
Designer Lori Durr used 'Clearlake' china by Noritake, red chargers by Martha Stewart, flatware by Oneida 'Royal Flute' and glassware from Pier I.
A Canadian tree is decorated with 4th of July ornaments.
Although this setting was created with the 4th of July celebration in mind, the tree looks appropriate for this holiday season too.
This table setting was the best in the Novice - Seasonal/Holiday category.
'Every (Snow) Cloud Has a Silver Lining'
Designer - Caroline Alexander of Downtown Dirt.
She used white Crate&Barrel dishes, IKEA flatware, vintage silver glasses and Waterford stemware.
The description of the tables was provided by Lakewold Gardens.
