Heart of the Home
Breaking bread with family and friends is a cherished tradition that we are celebrate annually at our Blueprint Gala. Focusing on the “dining room,” we have selected a group of 10 renowned interior designers and event decorators, all of whom have donated their time and talent to create our VIP Dining Rooms. Each has brought their creative expertise to the table, showcasing a diverse look in these stunning environments – each telling their own unique story. We’re pleased to welcome back one of the gala’s founding designers – that has generously brought their over-the-top and award-winning vision to life each of our six years, as well as many returning designers and some new designers as well!
