What to expect when you attend a Table Setting and Table Scaping Class taught by me and presented by Dazzle & Design, LLC - One Thing is Certain!
It's Not Your Typical Table Setting Class!!
See the Column to the Right to find out exactly What You will Learn...
Hi I'm Linda Patterson
And like you, I just love Table Scaping. I love to adorn my table with beautiful table top accessories. Like many of you, I too scour Yard Sales, Garage, and Estate Sales and I get tickled pink when I find a jewel of a deal.
I read and subscribe to the same magazines that you read, and I did not always know How to Set What I now call A Spectacular Table.
But I've always had an eye for color, and I'm a bit on the Flamboyant Side - I like things that speak WOW! and make a Bold Statement, both in the Jewelry that I wear and on the Table that I set.
My mother, Lucille, was not a professional interior designer, but she too had a flair for the dramatics; people always wanted to know how she came up with her ideas, where did you find that? - they would ask - how in the world did you ever think of this? they would exclaim! (See a Photo of my Mom below)
Not only does my mother love beautiful things - she intuitivly knows what to do with it, how to pair it with something, or make it say Look at Me! Aren't I beautiful.
So, I guess the old saying is true here, I'm the apple that did not fall far from the Tree.
I formed How to Set A Spectacular Table! TM - Table Setting Class for many reasons: THE MAIN ONE IS YOU!
To Show You How to Create A Table that has that WOW! JAW DROPPING Look -
The kind of table that has your guest gasping... What a Gorgeous Table, You've outdone yourself...How did You even Think of This...Can I have your Decorators Name ?
I formed this class becuase You spend a lot of money on tabletop accessories, you drive all around town, burn gas, stand in long lines, you plan the menu, the guest list, the seating arrangements, you order flowers from your favorite florist or you pick some up at your local Trader Joes' or favorite market
Then you Set a 'Pretty Table' and that's what your guest say as they enter the room - 'Oh, what a Pretty Table!' or 'This is very nice' or 'I like your table' - You Smile and say Thank You
Ok, Let's Be Honest....
After all that Effort, Time, and Money Spent...Wouldn't Your Prefer to Hear...
Oh My God, What a Fabulous Table! Oh! Wow, What a Gorgeous Table! - Your Table is Simply Breathtaking or What a Magnificent Table Setting, did you do this or did you hire a Decorator?
You worked hard to make sure that the glasses were spotless; the plate chargers are new, so are the napkins, you did all that running around -not to mention that small fortune you spent buying these tabletop accessories for this dinner party or luncheon - and all you get is 'What a Pretty Table" - You don't want Pretty...You want Acculades...You Want to Sit Down A Host...and Stand Up a Star!
But seriously though...
I've seen my sister, friends and clients struggle with How to Set their Dinner Party Table with their beautiful table top accessories they've spent a lot of money collecting all year long, and often, they set the table the same way time after time
You may be like some of them, you have everything, nice glasses, colorful plates, gold and silver plate chargers, a pretty floral centerpiece, two candles on opposite sides of the floral arrangement - OK! STOP THE MOVIE! and let's Re-Roll the FilmTape! This kind of Table Setting won't make you a Star...Listen,
I Know that you want to make a lasting impression on your guest...you've collected all the accessories...You're Just Not Sure How to Change it Up...How to give it that Umph!
How to make it stand out; you've tried a new Table Cloth, bought new napkins, bigger wine goblets..Yes, It's Pretty...but you want Wow! You want 'OMG! This Table is Stunning!'
Or maybe you're just looking for some New Table Setting Ideas! Whatever your reason - I'm here to help you solve your Table Setting Dilema (s)
I'm here to teach you how to 'Envision' the Table before Setting it...to provide you with the resources that you need to Set A Fabulous Table; one that your guest will love to get dressed up for and spend an afternoon or evening with you, enjoying delicious food, good wine, great conversation, mixing, mingling, celebrating and enjoying life
Afterall, that's what brings us together, Enjoying the company of our family, friends and loved ones!
This is why I created 'How To Set A Spectacular Table'!TM - To help you Create Stress Free Entertaining - To Celebrate You!

Here's A Picture of My Mom, Lucille who is 90 years young! This was taken last year at my niece London's Birthday Lunch along with Cousin Jalon - We're So Blessed! Some of my fondest memories are of me and my mother finding something at a yard sale and spray painting it or excited by something we found like an old chest, a tea pot, a peacock, we get elated with ideas of what we're going to do with it!
Doesn't My Mother Look Fabulous for 90 years young???? You Go Girl!
