"Farm to Table Harvest Celebration"

The Connecticut Public Broadcasting hosted "Farm to Table Harvest Celebration" at the Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station. Great chefs, Jeff Steelman, Mohegan Sun, Paul Barron, Rizzuto's Wood Fire Kitchen and Bar, Mark Shadle, I'ts only Natural Restaurant, Stefan Drago, The Society Room of Hartford and Riverhouse Catering,and Leo Bushey, The Hartford, Club all came together to create a delectable dinner using Connecticut grown foods, produce, and livestock. Their creative nohow titillated my taste buds.....and all the guests who attended.
We were challenged with table centerpieces from the "Farm to the Table" and created designs that brought forth guest curiosity and just plain fun. The apple design was tall and showy.......
This was the hit of the night...We hand crafted candle shades using green beans and I just love zinnias in mass.

This very natural garden bouquet came from my garden. It was just beautiful, the photo does not do it justice. The hanging amaranth is the only thing used that I purchased.

We did celebrate, Jim, Libby, Ivy and Kellie from the Riverhouse and Amy Williamson, Special Events and Development Coordinator for CPTV and all hands it took to create a great evening, great flowers, great food, great space and most of all to embrace our local resources with outstanding craft.

Dear, Bakes and Baldwin
Thank you so much for the beautiful table centerpieces you created for the CPTV "Farm to Table Harvest Celebration." The absolutely completed the look and feel of the room. I would love to work with you in the future.

Amy Williamson
