Welcome to my new blog
Memories by Design Creative Tablescapes
I am excited to begin this project as I have realized the love I have for creating tablescapes. It seems like I have been an event planner forever. Since I was a girl, I was always having theme parties, planned my wedding, friends weddings, and when my children got married, I planned their weddings. Not only that I have planned events that have been large, have done international events, you name it ..It seems like it is something I have always done..
But recently I have found that the thing I love more is that  I love love love creating tablescapes. 
It started years back,  when I wanted to have family out for Christmas. We had people coming from all over the country and I wanted to make it special. So we created theme Christmas's that were so beautiful that everyone wanted to come back the following year. My daughters and I didn't hold back, and we would go so over the top at the holidays that it took a year to collect the things we needed for the tables.
But lately I have found that once a year is not enough...after purchasing a bigger home with lots of room to store my table top design pieces, I began to create. After doing some private events for clients, I began to do some just for fun..

This week, I am featuring the tablescape I did for the Efavormart Centerpiece contest. I won 2nd place..and it is called  the Enchanted Woodland table.
Made with a Gold Manzanita Tree (efavormart $39) actually a deep gold taffeta rosette table overlay, a willow 120" round tablecloth. gold chargers with glass place settings, and decorated the tree with a glue gun and all the petals and gold flowers from efavormart . I even sprung for a backdrop..which was really fun
We used this theme and this tablescape for Thanksgiving and it was a hit..
Created some more memories and had over 20+ people for Thanksgiving dinner..

Enjoy and make a is what dreams are made of
