Creative Colorado TableSetting 2017
Event takes place at the YMCA of the Rockies in the Willome Building 
A Table Setting contest is a fun and creative expression of a place setting for two, for a meal. This year The Museum Friends will have three categories: 1) formal 2) informal and 3) freestyle. You can go classic, casual, contemporary, vintage, or let your imagination run free. 

Photographs of last year’s competition and guidelines for participants are available to view for inspiration and ideas.

For those who not sure if they would like to participate and would like more information, please attend the Table Setting 101 presentation on Friday, September 15 at the Estes Park Museum.

The cost to enter a table setting is $20 for individuals and $30 for those who wish to team up with friends or members of a club. Challenge your social or work groups for a competition within the competition. For those who wish to browse the creations there will be a $5 admission fee. All proceeds benefit the Estes Park Museum.
