Luscious Tables to Benefit Ryan House
If you like to entertain and love to create amazing tablescapes, the IFDA’s (International Furnishings & Design Association) event to benefit Ryan House is tailor-made for you.
Tableau Cinq 2012 will be held Oct. 13 at the Phoenician Resort, where the main ballroom will be brimming with more than 30 over-the-top tablescapes designed and created by top Valley design professionals. This year’s main theme is “An Evening at Moulin Rouge,” but styles will range from the Most Sophisticated to the Most Whimsical, and from the Best use of Color to the People’s Choice Award.
