Okay, so I hadn’t planned on doing another blog post about Dining by Design until I I’d finished my “blogging and tweeting” at the NYDC’s Connected table this afternoon, but oh-my-goodness-me! Cocktails by Design may have been one of the most fabulous events I have ever been to. Now that’s saying something – I have been to a lot of events. The skinny: Designers put together a tablescape in their designated spot. They provide the entire atmosphere – from walls/room dividers to furniture and mood lighting. Many designers are teamed up with a vendor. For instance, Vicente Wolf partnered with Artistic Tile to create an atmosphere. The entire floor and table was built out of gold tile.The designers carry the design of the room onto the tabletop. No holds barred – the theme of the space created is carried into the linens, flowers, dishes, candles, crystal – basically all the tabletop fixings that a girl who grew up with the last name Cupp could ask for! Can someone say feast for the eyes? Seriously, I am without a doubt a die hard tabletop person = my heaven!Not to mention, you should have seen the crowd at this charity event… puuuullease! I had the wonderful opportunity to rub elbows with interior designers I could only dream about meeting. I will most certainly do a complete review of the event after I snap more photos and finish tweeting from the NYDC Connected Table this afternoon.
If you’re not on Twitter and you want to get involved, ask questions, or interact this afternoon – or anytime for that matter! – email me or submit your design and social media questions via formspring.
