Dining by Design Shop of Cheer
Dining by Design, DIFFA’s (Design Industry Foundation Fighting AIDS) signature fundraiser, has been dubbed the “Cannes of tabletop” by filmmaker John Waters. Each participant designs a custom tablescape for the event. For the 21st Annual Showcase, we challenged ourselves to stretch our imaginations with a self-assigned packaging project for a cause. We took our passion for retail and consumer packaged goods and gave it a black tie interpretation with “The Shop of Cheer,” custom-designed to inspire guests with products of hope. The shelves were filled with cans of “optimism” and “hugs” and bottles of “peace” and “dreams” for all to enjoy. A true feast for the soul.
