HOLIDAY TABLES | THE WICHITA CENTER FOR THE ARTS
Katherine & Jillian Ambrose enjoyed a mother/daughter visit to see the Holiday Tables, a popular seasonal event in Wichita. It was fun discussing tables and voting on favorites. The theme was “Servings of Art.” And it delivered. Jillian loved an entry that featured an antique bed rather than a table. The bed was transformed into a garden.
Particularly impressive to Katherine was the “Disruptive Women” entry, by The Greteman Group, highlighting women that have made an impact in history.
Designing Women hosted Holiday Tables November 6-8 at The Wichita Center for the Arts. 9112 E Central.
“Holiday Tables is the much anticipated, annual fundraiser for The Wichita Center for the Arts. Each year, the galleries of the Wichita Center for the Arts are transformed into a decorating idea-fest with exquisite tablescapes for the upcoming season. Dining tables of all shapes and sizes are decorated by individuals, non-profit organizations, and businesses, showcasing home entertaining ideas. Guests can also shop in the Boutique for holiday items from the Traditions Home store and purchase home-made baked items. And don’t miss the delicious luncheon created by some of Wichita’s most creative culinary artists.”
