Here comes the sun – and an outdoor entertaining demonstration to match! This Saturday, event-planning extraordinaire Debi Lilly is turning her impeccable eye to the great outdoors in a tablescaping exposition featuring Room & Board’s 2012 Outdoor Collection. From 1 to 3 p.m., Lilly will take over the all-American furniture masterminds’ showroom to give their maintenance-free outdoor wares a polished party look just in time for warm weather. And if you prefer a more solitary approach to alfresco enjoyment, the event features EcoSmart fireplaces and comfy furniture perfect for a low-key evening under the stars. So RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place in the sun .
Room & Board Showroom, 55 East Ohio Street (Between North Wabash Avenue and North Rush Street); 312-222-0970.
