Program: Tabletop Tips for the Holidays
Speaker: Linda Zoffer, Owner of del ZIO Designs Interiors
From creating the main holiday table for festive meals with family and friends to bringing the holiday spirit to other table settings in the home, Linda will present a dialogue and slideshow on creating the holiday feeling throughout your home. All settings will include focus on utilizing florals and greenery, both real and faux, and how they pair with other objects on the tables and in the rooms themselves. Some ideas will also be shared for keeping real foliage fresher longer.
