Beautiful Tables Showcase

The Art of Entertaining


With a history of over twenty years, Beautiful Tables is an annual tradition at Lakewold Gardens. In 2019 Beautiful Tables is scheduled for November 1st – 10th. Lakewold Gardens invites professional and amateur designers to submit a unique idea for decorating a holiday table. Categories include, Formal, Whimsical, Seasonal and Contemporary. Beautiful Tables celebrates seasons, cultures, milestones and dreams. Typically, twenty-five – thirty tables provide an extravagant visual experience for visitors to delight in, find ideas to take home, and wonder at the ingenuity and creativity of our local design community.

Tables are juried by esteemed members of our local community. In 2019 these include: Jason Whalen, Deputy Mayor - City of Lakewood, Lynn Di Nino – award winning artist, Joanne Titus Thompson – long-time member of Lakewold Gardens and active Lakewood community member, Rock Hushka – Deputy Director and Chief Curator Tacoma Art Museum and Victoria Clark of Concepts.
