Unforgettable moments: 8 Cape venues & businesses share wedding stories
The Perfect Table—a one-of-a-kind party planning and design company
Expert designers with a passion for event planning, Cindy Dooley and Dorene Hunt started their business by designing simple candy buffet tables. Today, The Perfect Table has flourished, and the business now includes full-scale wedding design and event planning.
The Cape Cod company will take any color scheme for a wedding and create custom designs to fit perfectly—whether fun, elegant, vintage or beachy. Because the Cape is a destination for many couples, The Perfect Table designs many events with ocean or nautical themes, utilizing starfish, seahorses and seashells. “We work with brides to come up with a theme,” Dooley says, “or to elaborate on an existing theme idea. For example, in the designing of a dessert table, we supply the tables, the linens and the decorations. We take the color scheme and go from there.”
Everything the company designs is custom, and the concepts vary considerably. “One bride loved all things French,” Dooley says, “so we did a French table, with French desserts and French words.” The Perfect Table will also take on projects from as small as a single table to an entire house, and to gatherings of 200-plus.
Hunt recalls a project where a customer was hosting a bridal shower for her soon-to-be daughter-in-law. The scope was grand. “We transformed her house,” Hunt says. “We decorated every table from living room to dining room with centerpieces and hors d’oeuvres, and each setting had a succulent plant under a glass dome. Hearts and garlands hung from every window, laced-covered balloons from the dining room chandelier.” The dessert buffet table was arranged in all blush pinks, the bride-to-be’s favorite colors. “You should have seen the look on her face when she saw what we’d done to her house,” Hunt says. “It was priceless.”
