Posted on Monday, February 10, 2014 at 3:16 pm

This year’s “Tablescapes” has been scheduled for Friday, March 7, from 4 until 6 p.m.

A brunch will be held on Saturday, March 8, beginning at 10:30 a.m. to announce the winners of the beautifully decorated tables. Courtney Michaels, a recipient of the Motlow scholarship program, is the featured speaker.

Sponsored by Fayetteville Main Street, Motlow College and Fayetteville-Lincoln County Museum, this year’s event promises to be another enchanted evening with the proceeds to benefit each organization. Any business owner who would like to promote merchandise and/or services or individuals with imagination and creativity are invited to participate.

“Last year we had so many great ideas for table decorating, and I am sure those participating will come up with even more exciting, fun themes,” said Marie Caldwell, president of the FLC Museum Association. “We are so thankful that Main Street and Motlow invited us to partner again this year. We had a lot of participation from the public, and it is amazing the imagination and hard work that went into the table decorations.”

Last year’s participants were Breakfast at Tiffany’s, sponsored by Lincoln County Museum and Kim Vaughn; “Redneck Wedding”, sponsored by Fayetteville Elks Lodge #1792 Ladies Auxiliary; “Here Comes the Sun”, sponsored by Wanda and Katie Suterland, Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio; “Midnight at Mardi Gras, sponsored by Motlow Fayetteville SGA; “Glam and Glitter”, sponsored by Debby Terry-Keith and Vincent Vaughn; “BEEutiful Outdoor Brunch”, sponsored by Carolyn Caudle, Abey’s Farm;

“Get Well Soon”, sponsored by Ellen Scott, Tennessee Brace & Medical Equipment; “Bewitching Touches & Treats” sponsored by Tina Osgood and Jackie Harry, Ivy Wreath Florist & Gifts; “Hop into Spring”, sponsored by Beverly Towry & Tina Osgood; “Eating Up Local History”, sponsored by Fayetteville-Lincoln County Public Library; and “A Gentlemen’s Equestrian & Hunt Club”, sponsored by Perry Hall, SouthEastern Grants & Urban Planning”.

Due to space, only a limited number of tables will be available so anyone interested should immediately contact Main Street to reserve space.

“We will have Jerry Taylor and Friends on Friday night performing instrumental favorites, and we may talk them into doing some vocals too,” Caldwell added.

Anyone wishing to decorate a table should contact Carol Foster at Fayetteville Main Street, 433-7006. The deadline to participate is March 3, and applications can be picked up at the Main Street office located at 215 College Street or email mainst@fpunet.com.

Friday night, March 7, the public is invited to purchase a ticket, enjoy some refreshments and vote on the table they prefer, which will be given the People’s Choice Award. Judges from outside the area will judge the decorated tables on Friday after 2 p.m., and awards will be given for Best of Show, Most Creative and Best Theme. Awards will be presented at the brunch on Saturday, March 2.

Tickets are $5 for Friday night, and refreshments will be served. Tickets may be purchased from Fayetteville Main Street, Motlow, any museum board member, First National Bank from Heather McCormick and Bank of Lincoln County from LaGay Horton. The brunch tickets are $25 and must be purchased in advance.
