Lenox Hill Neighborhood House Presents – Once Upon a Time

By danielle


The annual spring celebration hosted by Lenox Hill Neighborhood House and underwritten by Rolex was held on Thursday, April 24, 2008 at the Park Avenue Armory (Park Ave. at 67th Street). For the first time, the public was invited to preview the Designer Tabletop Showcase from 1-4 pm. At the benefit dinner that evening, guests were seated at the tablescapes created by 50 of New York’s top designers. The theme of “Once Upon A Time” was interpreted in a myriad of artistic and fantastic ways, with floral aspects dramatically featured. The storybook whimsy of David Scott Interiors’ “Jack and the Beanstalk” put beans, peas and shoots to use in a magically chic design while David Kleinberg Design Associates’ “Time Heals Everything” took a clever medicinal approach featuring lab beaker florals on a Red Cross tablecloth, stethoscopes and candy filled prescription bottles. Drake Design Associates’ “Once Upon A ‘Thai’M” cast an exotic spell in luscious hot pink, orange and gold as Eric Cohler Design’s quirky homage to “Man’s Best Friend” included a lifesize floral pooch centerpiece, doggie bags and biscuits. The dinner guests shaded by the gorgeous floral tree at Noel Jeffrey’s “The English Garden” table surely felt protected in a completely soigne way. Lenox Hill Neighborhood House’s annual Spring Celebration raises private funds to improve quality of life for their neighbors in need.
