About Me

Hello, I’m Susan Cothern

I would love to make your special day shine!

I am the owner of Tabletop Elegance and proud to be a graduate of Baylor University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics. From a young age, I enjoyed planning events and giving parties and hosting showers. One of my greatest passions is helping brides and grooms celebrate the memorable day that marks the beginning of their new lives together.

It is so fun to walk into an empty room and watch the transformation. Months of planning quickly become a dream come true! When the final touches have been added, I love to step back and admire the finished product! No two events are ever the same. Each time I walk into a room to set up centerpieces I meet new people, see great venues and always think, “Wow, this is one of the prettiest events I have ever seen!” I love to see everyone’s hard work come together into one spectacular event!

My clients are talented florists, brides, and event planners. I love to travel to new venues. From Shreveport to Abilene, Tabletop Elegance has you covered.

I am married to Don, and he can assemble a candelabra blindfolded! I have two terrific sons and my first cat ever, Kitty Ann! When I am not setting up candelabras, I enjoy working on decorating my home, going to aquatic exercise, and playing Mah Jongg with the greatest group of women on the planet!
