Spring has sprung over at the annual Lenox Hill Neighborhood Gala in New York City with beautiful tabletop glamour

Thanks for stopping by for 
Spring views over here in NYC 
at the annual 
Lenox Hill Neighborhood House gala.  
Each year many of the city's talented designers showcase their creativity bringing jaw dropping tables to inspire us all.  I was particularly struck with the vivid color choices, and sophisticated combinations on many of the tables.  Color seemed the star of the show, but not one stroke of color, but, instead, a bold blending!
On April 3 Veranda Magazine sponsored this gorgeous evening set in NYC's Cipriani restaurant on 42nd Street.  With Bunny Williams and husband John Rosselli as Honorary Design Chairs, this black tie gala with a "High Society" theme brought many out to celebrate spring in the city.  
There were 45 tables in total, but let me show you some of my favorites:

Katie Ridder
the orange, white and purple combination was beautiful.  
I absolutely love the fabric, and it reminds me of our last family visit to Hawaii
John Todd Bishop
brought drama with a bold color and pattern combination:  the blue with magenta delights
Arden Stephenson
Arden creates a fantasy table with a combination of orange, purple, white and gold,
and all balanced elegantly with this gorgeous patterned fabric
Mr. Call for Stark
a page straight out of the preppy handbook 
with searsucker and the quintessential pink and green combination,
yet Mr. Call takes it up a notch.
Who knew carnations could be so chic?
Christopher Maya
I am completely in love with these orange seat covers and they are styled nicely with the dramatic trim.  The urn with topiary lemons makes me feel as if I'm dining in Capris
Allison Hennessy
The green, Greek keys and lovely Tiffany blue ribbon adds ambiance to Allison's table
Sam Allen
the Chinoisorie blue vases, the large elephant sculpture and urns pair nicely with the orange and white
Lauren Rottet
Lauren brings the wonder of spring with these pretty glass butterflies and butterfly-inspired fabric
Sallie Giordano
perfect for a garden party, Sallie's table of cut colorful glass and botanical inspired plates
pays homage to flowering blooms
Nicole Gibbons
Nicole's place cards, batik fabric and gold edged plates are a wonderful and sophisticated combination, yet her incredible English garden arrangement is the "icing on the cake"

The show-stopper 2013 event benefits those who live right here in my neighborhood of the upper east side. Since 1894, the Neighborhood House has served those in need who live, work or attend school on the Upper East Side.  It provides an extensive array of effective and integrated human services—social, educational, legal, health, housing, mental health, nutritional and fitness—which significantly improve the lives of 20,000 people in need each year.

Happy Nesting XO
