The tables are set to celebrate, and you are invited! Guests of honor for this year’s tablescape show house event at the Rotch-Jones-Duff House & Garden Museum include Audrey Hepburn, Jane Goodall, Paul Revere, Mother Nature, Tom Brady, Julia Child, James Audubon, Beatrix Potter and Jack Frost, among other notables.
More than 30 talented design teams–including amateurs and professionals, garden clubs, museums, and students from Greater New Bedford Vocational High School–will celebrate the time-honored traditions of hospitality and entertaining with their tablescape designs.
Two complimentary Celebrate demonstrations will be offered with admission at 9:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. Christine Decas will create several floral arrangements with her demonstration entitled Set the Tone for a Celebration with Flowers on November 17th. The following morning Rachael Sirois will present Winter Arrangements for the Mantle and Table. Reservations are required for the demonstrations (508-997-1401) as space is limited. All Celebrate guests are invited to enjoy mulled cider and goodies in the Winter Wonderland hospitality tent on Open House Days.
CELEBRATE kicks off with a Gala Preview Party on Thursday, November 16th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. followed by three Open House Days on Friday, November 17th and 18th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Sunday from 12:00 noon until 4:00 p.m.
Customized holiday wreaths designed by the ladies of the Garden Club of Buzzards Bay can be ordered at this event or by contacting the museum directly. They will be available for pick up at the museum the first week of December.
