Have you heard about the Hampton Classic tabletop competition? It's a celebration of tabletop design for entertaining and Kelli Delaney of KDHamptons is once again the esteemed judge.

This annual event, now in its 34th year, was held at the historical Maidstone Club, ringing in the East End holiday season in style!

Our community mourns the Hamptons builder and all lost in the tragic plane crash.

HC&G was the media sponsor of the 2016 East Hampton Antiques Show Preview Party, hosted by Aerin Lauder and the East Hampton Historical Society.

Media sponsor HC&G joined the Madoo Conservancy at the sixth annual Much Ado About Madoo garden market and fair in Sagaponack.

HC&G hosted a "Deeds & Don'ts" panel discussion at a stunning new residence by Farrell Building Company just steps from Mecox Bay.

HC&G helped kick off the Southampton Historical Museum's annual house tour at a cocktail party at the home of Quinn Pofahl and Jaime Jiménez.

A book signing was hosted at Christopher Guy with legendary Bergdorf Goodman's personal shopper Betty Halbreich.

The Grand Prix and Grand Finale take place every year as the Hampton Classic Horse Show winds up its hunter and jumper events at a luncheon that unofficially signals the end of the summer season in the Hamptons.. This is also when the Editor in Chief of HC&G (Hamptons Cottages & Gardens), Kendell Cronstrom selects the winning tabletop creations designed by some of the most talented designers. The table settings are created for their guests in the ringside VIP tent. The tables range from equestrian to beach themes settings all decorated with flowers, bushes and bright colors inspired by the beauty of the Hamptons.

HC&G celebrated its fifth annual Innovation in Design Awards on August 6 at Guild Hall in East Hampton, honoring top design professionals in the categories of architecture, interior design, garden design, kitchen design, bath design, and product design.
