According to Tablescapes Co-Chairs Amy Davis and Alicia Wood,
“The Dallas Alumnae Association of Kappa Kappa Gamma celebrates Dallas’ top creative talent and designer with its 19th annual Kappa Tablescapes on October 21 and 22, 2013 at the Dallas Country Club. Guests will view the spectacular tables and floral displays of our talented Dallas designers and experience Southern Hospitality at its finest as we present A Time to Entertain: From Farm to Table with James Farmer.
“Tablescapes is actually a three day design festival and not a single event: the Sunday private dinner with James for our largest supporters, Tablescapes by Candlelight- the Monday evening cocktail preview and then the Tablescapes Luncheon where James will be our featured speaker. We are expecting 1200 people to attend over the three days.
“The Sunday evening private dinner, a new benefit for our top level donors, will be inspired by James’ book “Porch Living.” He is helping the chef at Central Market, our presenting sponsor, create a the Southern menu for the evening. James will also be designing the event that evening and carrying this over to the Tablescapes events at DCC for everyone to enjoy.
“Tablescapes by Candlelight is our evening cocktail preview party where all of the beautiful designs are awash in candlelight. Guests enjoy open bar and a full cocktail buffet while enjoying the creativity of Dallas’ best design talent. The Tablescapes Luncheon is like a fantasy party where you are seated at one of these fabulous tables after hearing from our speaker James Farmer. Many of the designers are taking a cue from his garden-to-table lifestyle so we expect an incredibly lush event.
“Debbie Oates will be receiving the Key Honoree award for her contributions to Kappa and the Dallas Community at the Luncheon.
“The generosity of our supporters had enabled us to raise and distribute more than $2,100,000 to more than 60 beneficiaries in Dallas County. Eight very worthy agencies listed below have been selected as recipients of Kappa Tablescapes 2013 proceeds. Additional information regarding this year’s recipients may be found on our website at www.kappadallas.org.
