The following information was sent in by Theresa Cohagen, Tourism Manager, Mansfield Convention and Visitors Bureau:

For those who enjoy entertaining, particularly with the holidays approaching, the key to being the consummate hostess is creating a table setting with flair and panache. The 2014 Tablescapes Luncheon was held Oct. 16 at Walnut Creek Country Club - Mansfield, Texas.

Each table at the luncheon  was elaborately decorated with a different theme that you may want to replicate on your table to wow your guests with their first impression as they enter your home for a memorable dining experience. The decorating themes are as varied as there are special occasions to celebrate including holidays, showers, or any special day.

"Tablescapes is a fun event with community leaders and area business owners competing for the most creative tables," Theresa Cohagen said. "The proceeds benefit the MISD girls scholarship fund and it's a great way to kick off the fall holiday season."

The event is the fundraising effort for the Mansfield Women's Club to award scholarships to high school girls in Mansfield Independent School District every spring. The Mansfield Women's Club is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization dedicated to supporting Mansfield and the surrounding area.

Festival of the Trees

Also coming up, the  Festival of Trees hosted by Mansfield Women's Club is on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 5 and 6. This free public viewing of beautifully decorated, artificial table-top trees is sure to become a favorite Christmas tradition. 

Each tree will have decorator/donor signage to advertise your business, organization, or personal name. The trees will be sold by silent auction and 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Harvesting International Food Bank at the Mansfield Women's Club Caring Center - Mansfield, TX

Mansfield Women’s Club has been a nonprofit for 16 years. Its members have donated more than $430,000 to others in the Mansfield area benefiting the health and welfare of women and children, the hungry, and toward the education of our youth.

For those interested in donating, and for information for members participating in the tabletop decorating, PDF forms are attached to this article.
