Serving Up Style At The Des Moines Home + Garden Show

Feb 13, 2015, 19:05 PM
What is a tablescape? A tablescape is a theme that is brought to your table top by using centerpieces, linens, decorations, and serving dishes or flatware that enhances your guests' experience at your event.

It's a fabulous way to spice up your party and can be as simple or over-the-top as you'd like. And we're bringing you several examples at the Des Moines Home + Garden Show!


The Iowa Home Staging Alliance is teaming up with local media personalities for the Serving Up Style competition. Each media celebrity will be paired with a designer to create his or her own unique outdoor tablescape. Look who's be participating in this feature:

  • WHO Radio - Bonnie Lucas/Van Harden with Kathy Smith (Dream Schemes)
  • KCCI-TV - Eric Hanson with Kendra Johansen (Set2Please)
  • WOI-TV/ABC5 - Sabrina Ahmed with Teresa Holton (Teresa Holton Design)
  • Star 102.5 - Karess Carter with Messina Wendy (Spaces to Love)
  • KIOA - Maxwell and Pam with Sandy Mrachina (A Home Above)
A great way to get started on a theme for your tablescape is to think about your own style or interest, or the focus of your event! Whether you are setting up for a wedding, a Valentine's Day party, or just inviting some friends over for an outdoor BBQ, you can wow them with this little extra touch!
