Creative Tablescapes

The Creative Tablescapes is set to return to the Museum on September 21st at 12 PM!

After having to cancel last year’s event due to covid, the Tablescapes committee is looking forward to whoever is interested in sharing their talent, skill, and creativity by decorating a table with their own clothes, dishes, silverware, glasses, and centerpieces.

The Theme this year is “My Favorite Things,” so choose whatever your favorite thing in life is, and have lots of fun decorating your table!

 Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.
