Last year our table was inspired by the fairy tale the frog prince and this year we are designing a table around the story of beauty and the beast. We have one week left to finish, designing, crafting, gluing, searching and piecing together our table. With all of the amazingly talented people on board this year it is sure to be the event of the year!
Can't wait to share the finished product with you.

This year designers from NYC and CT are coming together to produce 27 dinner tables in themes from fairy tales, classic and modern storybooks and family-friendly movies, all created by well known artists, interior decorators, party planners, graphic designers, couture experts, floral designers, landscape architects and retailers. The tablescapes are inspiring, from tiny tabletop details to three dimensional constructions that hange in the air. The soundstage, which will host about 300 guests, is transformed by the creations, which take hours and hours of design time and are fully donated. This year’s designers include acclaimed event planner and author Karen Bussen and nationally-known children’s book authors and illustrators Mark Kimball Moulton, Jason Deeble and Karen Hillard Good. In addition, the Museum celebrates designs from Moshe Aelyon Studio, Burnett’s Landscaping, Adam’s Garden of Eden, Creative Endeavors, A Gala Affair, Hana Floral, True Event, 3 Cats Design, Chocolate Creative Design, Earth2, Purple Suitcase, Joshua Friedman & Company, the Thames Valley Music School Arts Camp, Dryden Design, the Lighthouse Voc-Ed Center, the Party Producers, the Children’s Museum, the American Liver Foundation, Gourmet Galley, A Thyme To Cook, Arrow Paper Party Rental, Cheryl Kling, Karen Mangiacotti and more.
The event brings back the extraordinary Transformation Station, a four-course dinner, dancing, and a thematic silent auction inspired by more children’s books. The auction features fashions, jewelry, home furnishings, art, clothing, and a focus on experiential packages, including a Red Sox play ball package, a Brides.com photo shoot, WTNH News Anchor Ann Nyberg’s interactive tour, a Nickelodeon Suites Resort stay and more. Generous donors hail from shops, museums, restaurants and businesses across CT, MA, RI and NY.
