2008, Los Angeles County Fair (awarded: participation ribbon)

The Ebersole Hughes Company are award-winning “tablescapers.”
Tablescaping is the art of setting a thematic table.

In our first year of competition, we chose the theme “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” but we did not understand how important it is to match your menu to your table, nor to be certain that all decorations are included in your story. We interpreted the theme to be “A Wake Up Proposal in Honor of Gay Marriage in California,” which we later learned was controversial in this family environment. Some attendees asked that our table be removed. The big queen who ran “Home Ec Alley” let it stand, telling everyone to “get used to it!”
We did not ribbon, but we learned a lot.
