As you are probably already aware, Classical Tents is one of the major sponsors of the annual Lenox Wedding Tour–a scouting trip inviting luxury planners and bridal media to get a sampling of the Berkshires. One of our favorite parts of the Tour is the Table Design Challenge (which really isn’t a “challenge” at all…we just never got around to changing the name!). Each guest is invited to design a table scape, using props, rental items from Classical Tents, flowers by Seagroatt Riccardi and a great big dose of their own personalities! The designers are given a choice of “inspiration invitations” (this year, provided by The Pink Orange) around which to base their designs. What was amazing to me was that two or three of the planners chose the same invitation, yet their tables looked so incredibly different! A real eye-opener to the fact that everyone sees things differently!
Our Challenge was held in the Cranwell ballroom, and the place was literally transformed! It was such a joy to feel the creative energy that was buzzing around the room, and later that evening, we all had dinner at those very tables. It was a really neat way for the public (this event was open to the public for a fee) to catch a glimpse of what the Tour is all about.
Take a look at some of the images of the tables our guests designed. And remember, this is just a sampling! There will surely be much more to come!
