2015 NAME National Indy--Table Centerpieces and Souvenirs

This year's table centerpieces were designed by Phil and Lynn Joehnke--a food/kitchen vignette atop a cooking pot with wooden spatula/spoon at the side. Unfortunately, I did not win a centerpiece--Darn. The table hostess at my table won it. There was no number drawing. You were handed out fortune cookies that had a message telling you "Thanks for attending" or "Congratulations! You won a table centerpiece."

In case you want to create your own vignette, here are some ideas to inspire you.

Our final souvenir--a cake with whipped cream and lemon curd by Carolyn McVicker. I didn't even know she made cakes. It's exquisite, and much nicer than it looks in picture.

Tracy Wilson was in charge of Souvenirs, and she did an outstanding job.
