The Opera House will display an another amazing array of beautifully decorated tables.  Individuals share their creative inspiration in designing stunning tablescapes using a variety of dishware (heirloom, vintage, and contemporary), holiday decor, serving pieces, and linens.  Additionally, the Blake Room will showcase the former Michigan National Bank conference room table, set for a feast.  If you are interested in decorating a table, please contact MaryAnn @ 517-204-0388.
