Designer Information

Looking for a fun new design project? Collaborate with a local chef to design a tablescape based on the culinary theme for a table of 8-10 guests!

Each design team will decorate a table on Thursday, May 10th, based on a theme chosen by the designer and chef coordinating with the food provided for the table.

Designers are welcome to create a lively centerpiece, adorn the table with artwork, and more…

Get creative and showcase your talent to sponsors and guests while supporting Focus on Home’s mission to furnish homes for families transitioning out of homelessness!

The following will be provided for each designer:

  • A table of choice (round, rectangle, or serpentine) for 8-10 guests
    • Designers/teams are also welcome to bring their own!
  • Standard event chairs
  • Serving ware, plate ware, and silverware (provided by chef)
  • Dollies for unloading

Layout

  • All table will be arranged on the 2nd floor of The Criterion along the rail. Please let us know the dimensions needed for your space and list the structures that will be present such as fountains, walls, or lighting stands.

***We ask that any walls/structures built Please do NOT block the railing, which would prohibit the view to the first floor***

Electricity

Each design team will split a 20-amp circuit with another team.

***All designers and chefs are responsible for supplying their own extension cords***

Lighting

  • The room will utilize the can lighting that will be adjusted to be low lit for the evening.
  • Candles will not be permitted
  • We will not be able to hang lighting structures from the Criterion’s ceiling beams due to the height restrictions of the lift.
  • Teams will be allowed to provide their own secured structure to hang lights and any other décor material from.

Dining

  • Dinner & Glassware should be coordinated with the design team to fit the concept.
  • Free tabletop rentals are being made available by Vintage Tabletop Rentals! Contact Britanny Cast at (405)550-2421 or tabletop.rental@gmail.com if you would like to discuss what rentals are available to fit your theme.
