Putting the FUN in Fundraiser

I came across this blog by Eddie Ross, Inc. the other day and had to share because it combines two things that are very near and dear to my heart—scouring secondhand stores and flea markets for fabulous vintage finds, and raising funds for a cure for melanoma through the Noreen O’Neil Foundation for Melanoma Research and The Wistar Insitute.

The event was called A Date with a Plate and I have to ask, is this not the happiest and most beautiful tablescape you have ever seen?

Can you see yourself sitting here for lunch or dinner with seven of your BFFs, perhaps on a lovely terrace? Shaded from the sun, of course!

For the full story, though, you really must visit to Eddie Ross’s blog to discover how he put it all together.

I’m inspired!

Until next time,

I love the bright colors--how can you not enjoy yourself sitting at that table!

I agree, Marin. The bright colors are wonderful, as is the mix of patterns.

I'm especially impressed that almost everything on the table has been recycled, and yet the overall effect is fresh and new.

I'll be trolling the thrift shops with new eyes.

Hey, what a great link. Thanks!

I am pretty addicted to home and decorating blogs; the kind where real women use their brains and budgets to come up with all sorts of unique ideas. What fun!

Gillian, I'm all about decorating on a budget. I also love the idea of reusing things instead of always buying something new.
