Rancho Santa Fe Community Center Spring Luncheon to feature designer Doug Dolezal

Renowned interior and landscape designer Doug Dolezal is slated to speak at the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center’s popular “Over the Top Tables” Spring Luncheon.

The event will be held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Thursday, April 2, at the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club, which has been newly renovated by owner Bruce Kleege.

Dolezal recently moved from his home in Rancho Santa Fe to Petaluma, and is in the midst of remodeling a new five-acre property affectionately dubbed “Songbird Grange.” He is also spearheading a number of comprehensive design projects throughout the region including Los Angeles, Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe.

“We’re thrilled to have Doug back in Rancho Santa Fe to share stories of his recent move,” said Linda Durket, executive director of the RSF Community Center. “He is much loved by the community, and I’m sure guests will enjoy hearing about his latest decorating challenges and accomplishments.”

The luncheon’s theme, “Over the Top Tables,” reflects the extent to which attendees go in creating unique tabletop designs. Awards are given to the best tables in four categories: Most Elegant, Most Unexpected, Most Amusing and Most Over-the-Top.

“Whether guests are in it to win it or just love the atmosphere of creativity, everyone has a great time,” Durket said. “It’s really about friends coming together to share their love of decorating and raise funds for the Community Center.”

The luncheon is expected to sell out quickly. Individual tickets are $95; the cost is $950 for a table of 10.
