Last Friday, Marc and I attended the Holiday Tables opening, where we have one room on display at the Newport Museum of Art. The event was definitely a step up from last year, which was the first year the Museum attempted something like this. Last year they had the largest room in the museum set up with tables of local vineyard owners and it was a wine tasting. In the middle of the room was a very small table with a minute amount of bland cheese and crackers. The event was well attended and everyone was hungry. Marc and I went out to eat after that evening because we were starving.
This year, the event seemed a little less well attended, which was unfortunate because they upped the ante with the food and wine. A caterer was brought in and there was an abundance of delicious foods for all.
Here are some views of some of the decorated rooms:
