Lakewold Gardens' Beautiful Tables Showcase


The Tables are here!
This is the 14th time that the famous Lakewold Gardens invite you to visit their popular Beautiful Tables Showcase!
It is held on October 25-28, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Wagner House.
Yesterday was the first day, and I treated myself to this festive display of 32 tables decorated 
by amateur and professional designers. 
I don't want to spoil your visit, so I'll just show several glimpses of the display.








          If you live in the state of Washington and have a free weekend, you might want to attend this event, get ideas for upcoming holidays and also stroll through the Gardens.
          Following are several pictures of the October Gardens. With most of the flowers gone, the Garden's bones are especially prominent. This is the perfect time to see, admire and appreciate what Thomas Church, the great American garden designer, and Eulalie Wagner created in this corner of Lakewood, WA.









Entrance fee for the Beautiful Tables Showcase: $7 Lakewold Member, $12 Non-Member
Last year's tables are shown here:

  11. Lakewold must be an amazing garden, should like to visit it and also the table showcase is beautiful. It's a pity we cannot come from Europe to the US just when we want to, but that's why I enjoy your stories and pictures even more.
