Calling all crafty, artsy, whimsical, book-loving, decorating types
to join our Centerpiece Team!

Our dinner tables are designed and decorated by individual volunteers to fit the theme of StoryLand. It is one of the most fun and eagerly anticipated aspects of the event each year. 

This year’s StoryLand theme is “Nourish”. We need 25 round dinner tables decorated with centerpieces that illustrate books that have to do with FOOD! Multiple tables of the same book are fine. Use the list below for inspiration or choose one on your own. Sign up today!
