This post is something a little different. I recently lent my support to D.I.F.F.A, a foundation that I believe in strongly.
Design Industries Fountain Fighting AIDS is an incredible platform that helps shed light on the AIDS epidemic, and raises money and awareness across the country for the disease, as well as uniting designers through fundraising events to support this important cause. I was honored to have been invited to participate in one of these fundraisers. I was cha;;enged to transform a wine bucket into something exciting for the DIFFA Glam Tablescapes event with Masins Fine Furnishings & Interior Design. My bucket will be auctioned off at the event along with all the other participants, with all proceeds going to DIFFA. To learn more about the upcoming event, check out info here http://diffaseattle.org/glam/tablescapes.
I chose to turn this stainless steel wine bucket into an ideal hostess gift. I wrapped it in some beautiful French dishtowels and filled it with items I would love to make a salad with, but wouldn’t want to buy for myself (aren’t those the best kind of gifts?!) There is a beautiful bottle of Olive Oil, and the most delicious bottle of Blood Orange Vinegar and Fleur de sel Salt. I also am including a signed copy of my book “Generous Table.”
For those who live in the Seattle area, I am also so excited to have the opportunity to give away 2 sets of VIP tickets to the “DIFFA Glam Tablescapes Event” at Masins Fine Furnishings & Interior Design on October 10th at 6pm in Bellevue, Washington.
If you live in the area and are interested in attending, you can sign up to win the tickets to this exciting (and fahionable!) event below. All you have to do is tell me what your favorite kind of salad is in the comments below! The contest will close on Friday night at 12AM PT and the winner will be chosen at random and announced on Saturday. Please enter only if you are interested in winning the tickets and live in traveling distance to the event- thank you!!
