The 30th Annual Design Inspirations Fundraiser

2023 marks the 30th year for Design Inspirations, a fundraiser supported jointly by volunteers from the Fort Worth Alumnae Associations of Kappa Kappa Gamma and Pi Beta Phi. Gill Children’s Services, Inc. and Breakthrough of Fort Worth have been chosen as this year’s charities.

The event itself features more than 60 elegantly designed tables, creatively designed by local designers and individuals. Seeing the tables and the amazing character of each one will inspire you to do more with your own beautiful things at home. Guests may view the tables at the Preview Party on Wednesday, March 1st or while enjoying a presentation from our keynote speaker and luncheon on Thursday, March 2nd.

Design Inspirations is pleased to announce Katie Ridder as our 2023 speaker

Interior designer Katie Ridder’s work has been published in Architectural Digest, The New York Times, Elle Décor, Town & Country, House & Garden, and House Beautiful. Architectural Digest, Elle Décor and House Beautiful have featured her projects on their covers. She has appeared on the “Top 100” list of designers for House Beautiful and Elle Décor. Her firm also produces a line of wallcoverings and textiles of her own designs.
