Final program for exhibit will be Thursday

PRINCETON — The final program for the Princeton Public Library’s Journey Stories exhibit will take place at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

“Dressing the Table” is an overview of how the way we set and decorate our tables for the holidays has changed over the course of time. Flowers by Julia and Hoffman’s Patterns of the Past will provide examples of dinner settings and centerpieces from the late Victorian era (1890s), the Mid-Century Modern movement (1950s) and a contemporary look for today, and the discussion will include table etiquette, important manufacturers and designers, how materials were obtained and purchased, as well as ideas to adapt these styles in your own home.

All programs at the library are free and open to all. The library is located at 698 E. Peru St. in Princeton. For more information, visit www.theprincetonlibrary.org or call 815-875-1331.
