Irony & Art of the Tables Past

I've always been a fan of ironic humor. I even studied it in a humor class in high-school.(I always took the easiest classes I could so I'd get good grades) Ironically, that fooled me into thinking I was smart when in reality if I had taken some challenging classes maybe my brain would work better today and maybe I would be doing something a little more financially rewarding than babysitting. I didn't even take a full year of typing in high-school because I never wanted to sit on my butt all day in front of a computer. Ironically, that's what I love to do now and I'm regretting not taking a typing course. I'm no longer such a fan of irony. It seems to follows me around, day in, day out. Sure, it's funny if it's on a sit-com about a can't win loser that you're watching on television but it's not so funny when you'd swear you were playing the lead role in that sit-com. Not a day goes by that at some point in the day I'm not looking over my shoulder expecting Ashton Kutcher to jump out and yell "You've been punked!" I had another of those ironic moments yesterday when I was looking through a bag of papers I found tucked away in my abyss of a closet. I was searching for some financial statements that my youngest daughter needed when low and behold I came across last year's Art of the Table brochure. I had looked and looked for that thing over and over so that I could try to figure out who to give credit to for the tables I had posted pictures of. Ironically, as soon as I delete the posts because I didn't know who to give credit to, I find the damned pamphlet from the show. So since I feel bad for posting pictures that I obviously shouldn't have I am going to go through this pamphlet and name everyone who had a table at last year's show and try to link to their website if possible. If I can figure out by reading the description of the table who is responsible then I will repost the pictures for it. If not, I won't but rest assured every table there last year was awesome and anybody in this list of people would be great to hire as a designer for your event. This is going to take a lot of time which ironically I am always running short on. Hopefully, I will get it done before next year's show. And here we go..... This first table is A Day in Paris by Pam Monahan again from Entertaining with a Flair

My guess from reading this pamphlet is that the Bridal Bliss table must be this gorgeous table below. If I am wrong I apologize. Tablescape Designer>">Gloria Boyden, Events by Design 317-566-8233 Floral Designer /">Jan Johnson, Wedding Flowers Design Studio 317-813-8699
