Editor's Note: Today I am wearing AG Jeans, a top from New York and Company, sweater by Ellen Fischer, and C Wonder kitten heels.
There is a wonderful event once a year that is sponsor by Pi Beta Phi and Kappa Kappa Gamma called Design Inspiration. It is a tablescape event that has a cocktail party on Wednesday night and a luncheon with a speaker on Thursday. I have been participating by designing a tablescapes for the last 14 years through my company Kay Genua Designs and at least 5 years before that when I was at The Market. I love designing these tables using my china and crystal and coming up with different table skirts and flowers each year. I usually start planning next years after the current year ends. All the tables by Kay Genua Designs expect for one have been my own flower arrangements. I love doing flowers and would do them more often if there were more hours in the day. I have often said that if I could divided myself into more than one person I would accomplish so much each day. Here are some pictures of my tables that I have designed through the years. This years table will feature a beautiful turquoise silk. I am very excited about it and my dishes that I am using. I am fortunate to own enough dishes to feed an army so, it is fun to pull from my resources. This years dishes belong to my Grandmother One Momma and she bought the dishes in England.
I have re-purposed the table topper from this table and I am using it on my kitchen table now. It is a fabulous fabric from Sanderson.
This tablecloth and dishes came from Wisteria.
This was a wonderful linen from Fabricut.
I do pads every year to go along with the color scheme of my table. I leave them for the guests that eat at my table during the luncheon.
The china and crystal for this table I found at K. Flories Antiques on Camp Bowie (like I really needed more).
The silver plate knife and fork is from Christofle.
This was a wonderful heavy linen that I also used for Country Day's Prom on the round tables.
I do a lot of custom monogramming on my napkins. This is a back to back "K." This silver was borrowed from my assistant at the time Mallory Lummis. The sterling pattern is Buttercup.
This was a faux silk from Fabricut with my grandmother One Momma's rose colored wine glasses.
The silver compote in the center was my great-grandmothers on my father's side.
I love this yellow silk. It was so feminine and pretty!
This silk was from Coraggio, the china is from Limoges, and the sterling was my great-grandmothers, the rooster knife rest came from Paris.
Last night for dinner I had broccoli with a bison burger.
This song will forever remind me of when my twins were young. It always brings tears to my eyes.
