DIFFA Glam: Tablescapes & Buckets by Design

September 25, 2013

20130925-093208.jpg The Seattle DIFFA Chapter started in 1992, and very soon after I joined its board. Over the years the chapter has hosted some of the city’s most creative events. That creativity continues, with DIFFA Glam, on October 10th at Masins Fine Furnishings & Interior Design in Bellevue. DIFFA stands for Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS. I am always more than happy and honored to create something for these wildly creative events.

20130925-094114.jpg The Buckets by Design silent auction will be filled with ice buckets created by Seattle creatives, and paired with wine from La Crema Of course orange was the first thing that came to mind, as well as letters, two Watson Kennedy favorites.

20130925-094523.jpg Inside the bucket I added more orange goodies. I always like to think of this as a bit of a fantasy. In this, I picture a couple sipping La Crema wine that has been chilled in the orange bucket, from the 2 orange rimmed tumblers, having a bit of a picnic. Candles lit, French towel at their feet while nibbling chocolate while reading from the witty book. That is the fantasy. Here is the reality. I hope my bucket package along with all the other fab things at the event go for a good sum of dough. DIFFA Seattle has always helped to fund some of the neediest and most worthwhile local HIV/AIDS organizations. Also included in my bucket package is a one night stay at the beyond fabulous Inn at the Market who are my lovely and beyond generous neighbors at the Fine Living shop at 86 Pine Street. This night’s stay will help you rest up to spend the two $100 Watson Kennedy gift certificates that will be included in the package. A little exercise after all the rest and shopping can be put towards the virtual golf you and 7 of your friends will get to play at Hotel 1000 which was donated by my other lovely neighbor who is by the Fine Home shop on First Avenue. The entire WK bucket package is valued at $1000.

To make this all even a little more interesting, I would love to give away 2 sets of VIP tickets to the event. Leave a comment on this post between now and the end of the Friday October 4th. Since I am a lover of quotes, the comment needs to include your favorite quote. I will draw the 2 lucky winners on Saturday randomly, but I will include your quote in the weeks to come on one of my weekly quote posts.

It will be such a cool event. If you would like to buy tickets for the event or just check out more information about all of it, visit DIFFA Glam to learn more. Now comment away! I can’t wait to read all your favorite quotes. Good Luck.
Happy Wednesday, Ted
