Tabletops to Drool Over at Dining by Design


With the major feast just a week away, we’re hoping you’ve got your recipes planned–or at least have an invite to someone’s house who does. Because at this point in the game, it’s time to put down the menu and start thinking about the little details that’ll make your Thanksgiving table extra special.

Need a little decorating nudge? Your timing couldn’t be better: Today marks the return of the San Francisco’s annual Dining by Design event.

Each year DIFFA calls on the best in local design talent to dream up some stunning tabletop installations. We get to ogle each masterful creation at either the Table Hop & Taste (cocktails and mingling) or the main Gala Dinner (three courses served to you atop one of those styled tables), and proceeds from all the tickets go to the fight against AIDS.

It’s the motherload of tablescape inspiration! So bring a notebook and prepare to be blown away.

Dining by Design is today and tomorrow only (November 17th and 18th). More information available here.
