Focus on Home, Design Appetit

The 84 Hospitality Catering Team was able to join forces with the creative team from Rees Associates for Design Appétit, a design competition where Architecture + Interiors + Art + Food collide for a unique dining experience while raising much needed funds for Focus on Home. Together, we created ‘A Modern Desert Dream.’ The design team from Rees Associates transformed the space with beautiful cactus provided by Calvert’s Plant Interiors. The table was set beautifully and the culinary team from 84 Hospitality created an incredible four course menu.

Surrounded by other culinary teams in beautifully designed spaces, Farmers Market filled with amazing dining vignettes for guests to enjoy. More importantly it was also filled with 50 new mattresses that had been purchased for Oklahoma City kids whose families were transitioning out of homelessness. These powerful stories are real and touching.


 “Because of the generosity of those in attendance and the gift of so many amazing and talented designers and culinary teams from all over OKC, we were able to help create such a successful, memorable event for everyone who attended the dinner.  Focus on Home raised over $44,000 during Design Appetit,” said Joli Sanders, executive director of Focus on Home.
