Lenox Hill Neighborhood House Dinner

Last week, Lenox Hill Neighborhood House hosted their annual Spring benefit at Cipriani 42nd Street, NYC. This year's theme was "Spring Fever", and as you can see, the designer tables certainly captured the beauty and frivolity of the season.

This year's Honorary Design Chairmen were Bunny Williams and John Rosselli, both of whom have devoted much time over the years to the organization. The event's design committee included Christopher Spitzmiller, David Duncan, and Michael McGraw. By the way, I have to mention that Christopher will be receiving the 2012 Elizabeth Rohatyn Award for Community Service for his volunteer work with Lenox Hill. I am very proud of him.

Below are photos of a few of the designer tables. (I did not have the opportunity to attend, but a kind person sent these photos to me.) Other designers whose tables are not seen here include Michael Devine and Thomas Burak, Steven Stolman for Scalamandre, Ashley Whittaker Designs, and many more.

  5. Beautiful post Jennifer, and always such a pretty party - but this year's was especially good! The Etos table really fab - I haven't seen anything quite like that huge globe of flowers, my goodness. FYI for New Yorkers who love this sort of thing, the New York Flower Show diner dance is tonight with tables decorated to the theme "Couture en Fleur." At 583 Park, from 3 to 5 pm. I also reference it in my post today at www.francesschultz.com.

  6. What a treat! This, the weather, and the fact that I go to the NYBG today for the Orchid Show really put me in the mood for Spring! Every table has a terrific theme and beautiful color balance! Etos, WOW! LOVE IT! Love it all! Thank you PEAK OF CHIC!!

  7. It is wonderful to see all the great talents' contributions to such a worthy cause.

  8. Stunning is the word that comes to mind. Thank you xxpeggybraswelldesign.com

  9. I think the table centerpiece has both pussy willows and forsythia in it. My favorite is Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah !

  10. Thanks so much for the post Jennifer! Hope to see you soon, let's go for lunch with Chris when you're in New York next! Hope all is well,
