at the 2017 Lenox Hill Spring Gala, 
Creativity For a Great Cause!
This past week we were busy preparing for the Lenox Hill Gala which is hosted each year in the gorgeous historic ballroom at Grand Central Station, now Cipriani 42.  Take a look at the above video-- a "behind the scenes" makings of our table channeling this year's theme, All That Glitters.  We wanted to capture the luxurious jewels of the sea and how they glitter and shine, and combined that concept with the launch of our brand new fabric collection, exotica.  These are vibrant colors and fresh new designs, so it worked seamlessly with our aesthetic.  Also, come take a look at our 10 favorite tables at the event-- we adored so many of the 40 tables, and each was prettier than the next.  It was difficult to name a top 10, so we chose ones with an unusual, creative flair, offering something more than pretty flower arrangements.  The designers worked hard to create extravagant designs, and the crowd seemed to relish in every moment of the evening!  This year marked our third time participating in the Lenox Hill Spring Gala and it's a rewarding event to be a part of, and we are grateful the organization does so much good here in our local community in New York City!  Also, see here terrific coverage of the Lenox Hill Gala by two top magazines in the design and fashion world-- 
AD HOME and WWD!
Happy Nesting

a little bit about the
 Lenox Hill Neighborhood House:
The Lenox Hill Neighborhood House has served those in need since 1894, and those 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 improves the lives of 15,000 people in need each year.
