Last Sunday, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., was the viewing of 33 tablescapes at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial. The proceeds went to St. John Providence Health System Breast Care Program. This was their 11th annual event, but the first one I've attended.
We were greeted with floating pink and white flowers in the fountain at the entrance of the War Memorial. The War Memorial was once a private residence, and in 1949 Mrs. Russell Alger, Jr. deeded the Italian Renaissance Mansion and grounds to the Grosse Pointe War Memorial Association.
I will spread my photos out over a few posts due to the large volume. While there was no official voting on favorite tables, or prizes awarded, I will begin with the tables that I liked best.
Mrs. Miniver's Rose Garden
Since this table was tea themed, you know it would be at the top of my favorites! I liked its simplistic elegance. Notice the layering of the linens. Most of the tables decorated their chairs too.
Proud as a Peacock
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Petals and Pearls
Symphony of Friends
Mad About Plaid
Run for the Roses
I'll close with a whimsical tablescape, " Bee Happy," which is about a third of the way through the tablescapes. The hostess of this table said she had been collecting bee items for a couple of years to complete this tablescape.
Come back tomorrow for more!
