Speaking of hot men, I've been hounding David Jimenez, above, for pictures of his table from Kansas City's Dining by Design.
He's busy I know. VP Visual Merchandising and Store Design for Hallmark Cards, writing for Spaces
, volunteering, being fabulous, it all takes time.
Right before the event he had emailed me to say he was worried about the table.
I never was, though I knew he was under a lot of pressure; his tables for the last few years have been knockouts.
This year was no exception.
David and his cohort and co-hostess, Merrily Jackson, above left, can always be counted on to throw a terrific party.
Mr. Blandings, he's the hottie on the left, and I, not the gorgeous number on the right, had a wonderful time.
Of course I was nearly speechless as the table linens were one of my favorite colors ever. Actually, that's not true as I am never even nearly speechless, but I was certainly enchanted.
The entire evening was a confection and we were oh-so-lucky to be a part of it.
Post script. Here I am with our own home grown Tom Ford look-alike Phil Scaglia. I do seem to gravitate to dark and dreamy.
