The Art of Tablescaping Goes Live!

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” — William Arthur Ward

This Spring I hope to earn my stripes as both a superior and great teacher
when I teach my first ever class,
“The Art of Tablescaping”
through Longview Community College in Lee’s Summit, MO.

Working up the nerve to stand among eager students and teach what I know like the back of my hand and love like a baby has been a long time coming. Since retiring two years ago, I have taken on a relative timidity…a complete 180° from my professional life. But because I feel so passionate about the fine art of entertaining and creating enjoyable, relaxing, memorable dining atmospheres, I am stepping up to the plate and making that first pitch on March 6, 2012.

If you live in the Kansas City area and would like to take the course, I’m posting below the school’s catalog information. If you know anyone who may be interested, please pass the information along to them. Signing up is as easy as phoning the Community Education office at Longview College at (816) 604-2030. If you live outside of the metropolitan area, I’ll be quite happy with any and all support you have to give!
Above all, please pray that I don’t wet my britches in front of all those people! 🙂

  1. Oh Alycia, you’re already a great teacher! You inspire me with each post!! Whaaaa, I wish I lived closer I’d LOVE to attend this class and play in the dishes and bling!!! Don’t be nervous, you’ll do fabulous! It’s easy to speak in front of others when it’s your passion. xx


  2. I would love to take your class. What a great idea! From what I know of you, you will be a natural! You have such great enthusiasm for your tablescapes and other peoples too. Let’s make setting a pretty table and lingering over a meal with family and friends the “in” thing to do in 2012! Best of luck and let us know how it goes.

  3. You are awesome! I live in the state of Maryland and read your posts as often as I can. Just reading your posts has taught me so much about tablescaping, something I’ve done for years and love it! Thank you so much and I wish you all the best with your new endeavor. Maybe you could come to Maryland and teach!!


  4. Since I’m so far away from you for classes, I can keep on been inspired by your spectacular tablescapes, you are one teacher extraordinaire. Please keep us on the latest on how your classes are coming along. Have a happy Sunday.


  5. I was so hoping to take your class, but the 3rd week is my Spring Break so I will not be around the area. So sadly, I will have to wait until the next time you offer the class. I know the class will be fantastic.
