Gore Place Carriage House Gala
Last Friday I was so pleased to participate in the celebration of the newly renovated Carriage House at historic Gore Place in Waltham, MA. Gore Place is the historic home of former Massachusetts Governor Christopher Gore and his wife Rebecca, which has been maintained by the Gore Place Society since 1935.
I had been wanting to get involved and volunteer time in my community, so what could be better then planning a celebration of this historic property. I feel that it’s important to help these architectural gems survive. Being on the planning board for the Carriage House Celebration inspired me in more ways then I expected!
Instead of designing the residential spaces, I partnered in planning the tent and table decorations. Winston Flowers helped with these beautiful centerpieces of fresh fruit and candlelight. A rattan charger and dark wood chairs, paired with linen and Tiffany place settings complimented each other to create an approachable yet refined environment for the celcbration. To complete the design we draped the tent in small bistro lighting and added a picture of Mr. & Mrs. Gore to the table.
