I can’t believe the holidays are almost upon us, which means lots of chances to have family and friends over for a meal. To give you some inspiration for your table, the Ohio Design Centre is hosting Entertaining by Design, an annual tabletop showcase, with tablescapes created by top interior designers.
New this year is a Patron Party and Gala on Thursday, November 6 to benefit North Union Farmers Market. Attendees will get a first look at the designs, as well as specialty cocktails, savory small bites, live music, and the chance to bid on unique auction items. Tickets for the Patron Party and Gala are $100.
Then, on Friday, November 7 and Saturday, November 8, the sprawling Ohio Design Centre showrooms will be open to the public to take in these beautiful table designs and get inspired for your own holiday (and beyond) entertaining.
There will be the opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice Award, as well as see how your own personal choices match up with the winners chosen by a celebrity judge panel, including Brandon Chrosotowski from EDWINS restaurant and Charity D’Amato from i heart cleveland.
The showrooms will be open from 11am-7pm on Friday and 10am-4pm on Saturday. Tickets are $10 at the door to peruse the beautiful designs and proceeds similarly benefit North Union Farmers Market’s education and access programs. Or you can enter to win two tickets to the public table viewing good for either Friday or Saturday right here!
