Once again Dining by Design ushers in the Thanksgiving Holiday!
The 2011 IFDA table was an excellent collaboration and a fantasy table come to life - Lost in Paradise
. Some of my favorite comments of those viewing the table...
Opulent. Lush. "I feel transported." "I want to go there."
An undertaking like this takes the efforts of many and the IFDA design team really went above and beyond - Lauren Shelby-Spaces Within Interior Design, Athena Charis-Manning-Athena Charis Design, Timothy Manning-Photographer and More, Jenny Floravita-Artist and Diane Nicolson-FIFDA. In addition we couldn't have done it without Susan Crane-Bloom Artistry and the extraordinary support of Davis Dalbok and his wonderful staff at Living Green.
Wishing you and yours a wonderfully collaborative Thanksgiving Holiday! Enjoy the images below!

Timothy Manning once again has provided us with excellent photography as well has his expertise in graphics, fine art and communications.
"Lost in Paradise" a casual boating excursion to that tiny island off the mainland and a trek through the jungle brings you to a clearing where you discover a place lost in time. Decorated with earthly treasures from centuries past and present, this exotic setting you have happened upon whispers of pirates and other mysteries and invites to sit, sup and dine and never have to work or worry for the rest of your lives.
