Hear ye! Hear ye! April Cornell News!

Good news! The Tablescaper won the professional category of April Cornell's tablescaping contest and I won the standard category. Congrats to us, lol! We have not received any official email yet but it is posted on her website at http://www.aprilcornell.com/ and her facebook at http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=490532027762&set=a.59794617762.70021.57658262762

Below is what is posted on her website:

Talented Tablescapers
"Our Decorating Contest was so much fun! It is so wonderful to see how you are using our linens to create beautiful tables and settings for your home. We asked and you delivered! We received your lovely tablescapes and be assured - it was a tough call to choose just one in each category! Congratulations to Alma A., who won in our Professional category and to Christine W. in our Standard category! Thank you to all who entered, you all did a beautiful job setting your tables with our linens!! "


I was so excited to see the news. And to think that I hesitated from joining, thinking I had no chance to win because there are so many talented tablescapers. Besides, I did not have a lot of April Cornell linens except for a few candles and a tablecloth. But then, I figured what have I got to lose when I already have a table set for a party,right? So, I gathered a lot of courage and sent a few pictures. I am so glad I did!


Congrats again, Alma (and me, lol)!

That's such a nice compliment. Thank you. Question: I never end up buying April Cornell because her cloths are always too short or too small in diameter. Do you use multiple cloths on your table to achieve adequate coverage, or do you know of a source for larger cloths?...or do you just use them as toppers over another cloth? Just wondering. Thanks for your kind help. Cherry Kay
