marrakesh express

Kappa Tablescapes was a HUGE success!  Thank you to everyone that attended the event, and especially those of you that came to support JMI.  Our table was inevitably entitled The Marrakesh Express due to its eclectic vibe created by a collection of items from various parts of the world.  We brought in our own furniture, topped the table in an antique suzani from Uzbekistan, and created a focal point with as many antique Chinese Hunan jars we could fit!  The wooden horse added height and the vintage ceramic pots from Sante Fe acted as the perfect vessel for our flower arrangements that were placed at each setting.  The heads of the table were accompanied by a garden stool and cherub pot holding a cold bottle of Veuve!  The perfect party setting.

A highlight of the evening was meeting the keynote speaker, Hutton Wilkinson!  Hutton gave a wonderful speech on his professional life with Tony Duquette, and was kind enough to sign both of my treasured Duquette design books.
