Table du Jour at TPML Fundraiser
Guests at Sept. 27-28 Tables du Jour fundraiser by Friends of Tye Preston Memorial Library will be treated to intricately designed dinner tables like this one, from the "First Edition" of Tables du Jour in 2015: "The inspiration for Mr. McGregor's Garden started with finding the pattern for the carrots which became chair backs for an Easter table. Everything needs more than one purpose so what fun to create a special garden for Peter Rabbit. Spring is in the air and this tablescape will make you want to go home to start your garden. Designer Laurie Oberg encourages you to enjoy each detail of the table and imagine Peter Rabbit and all his antics with Mr. McGregor." Image by Scott Mozisek
