Second Annual Table Setting Contest


Our Second Annual Table Setting Contest

Friends and customers often share stories with us about how they weave Rosanna collections into their lives. Inspired by what we’ve heard, we held our first Table Setting Contest last summer. The results? A bounty of creative tabletops that truly impressed us.

Last years 1st place winner was Tresa Nicols of Medford, OR

With such a tremendous response, we knew we needed to throw-out the challenge again! Show us what inspires you… how you like to entertain… and how you create an award-winning table setting. Be creative and mix-in those precious family heirlooms and personal treasures with our newest and most fashion-forward collections. Tell us how your family and friends enjoy your beautiful tablescapes. And show us what you have designed.

Last years 2nd place winner was Donna Green of Kingwood, TX.

Entering is simple and there’s no purchase necessary to win.

1. Design the most amazing table setting— only one entry per contestant please.

2. Photograph your design as best as possible, although you will not be judged on the photography. You are allowed up to three photos of your table setting.

3. No later than August 31st, 2008 send your photos along with a message about the inspiration for your design to:

contest@rosannainc.com or Attn: Contest 440 South Holgate Street Seattle, WA 98134

I will judge the contest personally and we will reward prizes including:

1st Place
A $300.00 gift certificate from Rosanna, Inc. and your table setting featured as the homepage on our website which is viewed by more than 11,000 people each month.


2nd Place
A $150.00 gift certificate from Rosanna, Inc. and your table setting featured on our blog.

There will be other undisclosed prizes and awards to be announced.

Each entry will be judged on creativity, use of inspiration and personal style. The winners will be announced on our blog by Friday, September 5th.

Hi Rosanna,

I enjoyed your article about the Second Annual Table Setting Contest.

Along the same lines, I thought you might enjoy an article I wrote about the history of table manners.

I found you too late to enter. Oh well! But, these are gorgeous! It is a talent and courtousy that I think is being lost in society. Thanks for championing the cause of grace and good eating.
