Come To The Table
This truly unique fundraising event demonstrates the creative talent this community has to offer, while supporting & promoting a worthy cause. Local individuals showcase their talents to create original Table Designs that are then auctioned off to the highest bidder.
What are the Table Designs?
Table Designs are unique, themed creations assembled by talented local individuals for display and sale at Tables & Tastings. Many Table Designs start with the basic idea of a dining table, including service for four. However, the sky is the limit, and our designers get more creative every year!
Some of our Table Designs are meant to be assembled into an elegant dining room, and include everything you would need to create a room around them. Some even include wall hangings, chairs and even a new table itself!
Many of the creations could stand as works of art on their own. Designers with excellent taste and a critical eye bring together something that wouldn't look out of place in a gallery; modern sculpture via flatware!
Other Table Designers take a more whimsical approach, and load their tables with goodies! One idea is to include a variety of gift certificates that follow the theme, while others simply include a collection of items that anyone would feel lucky to own. Through cooperation with sponsors and their own generosity, designers make these tables a true prize!
A few Table Designers have pulled out all the stops, creating elaborate displays that could outfit an entire room of your house or a luxurious outdoor patio space!
Of course, in the end a few tables are completely unique! How about a complete setup for breakfast in bed; including the bed? Maybe an outdoor patio set, with fountains, a new grill and wind chimes to transform your backyard? Perhaps even a canoe and picnicing backpack for exploring the Adirondacks, or the supplies and ideas for an entire year of monthly get togethers with a group of friends? All of these and more have been past design submissions, and there's no telling how far this year's Table Designers will push the envelope!
