  Entertaining by Design, THIS weekend!


Hey Cleveland…happy tricks and treat to you! I hope that you had a wonderful spooky weekend and an even better Halloween Monday. Our little guy dressed up as a lion but wasn’t truly 100% on the costume idea…although he was totally on board for free candy; smart kid. HA!

This week seems to be a very busy one. I don’t know about you but when fall hits it seems that there is always something to be done. I actually LOVE all the action and pre-holiday festivities.

Don’t forget that Thursday is the United Way, Rock the Catwalk event. If you haven’t bought tickets yet make your way over to their site to score one of the last few seats to this year fashion celebration.

Then on Friday, I am so looking forward to exploring the Entertaining by Design event hosted by the Ohio Design Center. This evening soirée features themed tabletops created by Cleveland’s most talented interior designers. Come and cast your vote for the best design and see how your vote matches up with our panel of celebrity judges.

Enjoy a spectacular evening of specialty cocktails, savory gourmet culinary delights, and local live entertainment. Bid on distinctive auction items while viewing dramatic tablescape displays created by Cleveland’s top interior designers. This Friday, November 4 | 7-10:30pm | Cocktail Attire | at Ohio Design Center.

If you can’t make it on Friday for the gala event, the show will also be open all day on Friday & Saturday from 11am to 5pm, for $10. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Again, I hope you had a wonderful spooky weekend! I’m gonna go check out instagram and all of your fun costume pictures!

Have you heard about the upcoming holiday-kick-off fundraiser called Entertaining by Design? It seriously is such a spectacular design event filled with so many wonderful holiday decor inspirations showcasing the areas finest interior designers.

The event showcases spectacularly themed tabletop, dining, and entertaining designs representing various holiday celebrations. It really is a great place to start gathering inspiration for the upcoming entertaining season.

This year the Friday night event kicks off  with a cocktail party…all proceeds from the evening benefitting the Malachi House. Grab a few of your girlfriends who enjoy pretty pillows, some gold flatware, a plethora of table runners and florals out the ying yang, it seriously is going to be a wonderful event.

EntertainingFor ticket information and more details on the entire design evening visit their site. 

I can’t wait to check out all of the amazing designers work! Last year I was lucky enough to be a judge of the contest (each designers work is judged) and all I can say was that it was so hard to even begin to choose the winners as each creation was so over-the-top and visually awe-inspiring…it is a great event and the fundraiser angle makes it even more of a reason to attend. Hope to see you there!

This week I am excited to share with you that I will be judging this years, 2014 Ohio Design Centre’s, Entertaining by Design event.

This annual event features more than 30 tablescapes designed by Cleveland’s leading design professionals. The tables offer an array of designs with everything from the very formal to the very fun. It is a wonderful way to get inspired and excited for the upcoming holiday’s ahead.

I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year and will love seeing what other creatives come up with for their holiday decor…I’m sure I will pick up a few ideas for the impending family soireé.

Tickets for this weekend event are still available and all the proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the North Union Farmer’s Market. Last years Entertaining by Design event raised more than $7,000 to support local farmers.
