But, we’re excited to announce that her amazing Deco Drive Co-Host and WSVN News Anchor Lynn Martinez will be stepping in as this year’s MC. We are so grateful for the support of WSVN and this dynamic Deco duo!

The Bees-Knees:
This category is for head wear that is not only glamorous, but best fits this year’s 1920s Haute Tea theme. Cloche hats, beaded/crocheted skullcaps and intricate flapper-style headbands will be considered for this category.
