who doesn't love a beautiful brunch with friends? especially when a dear friend hosts it for you in her home! a recent client did just that for a 50th birthday celebration. it was a beautiful fall day, even a few degrees cooler in Chappaqua than here in the city. i have to be honest the drive up there was half the fun...i love a ride outside the city when i get the chance.
the client only had one request, all white flowers...so the rest was up to me. with one long table for her guests i opted to use three simple white ceramic vases to line the table, each filled with a combination of hydrangea, dahlias, scabiosa (a different variety than the stellata), ranunculus and parrot tulips. i used four additional etched glass vases down the center of the table. an individual bud vase was set at each place setting for the guests to take home with them...i think that a special touch like that makes the difference. it adds to the design of the table and is a token of appreciation for all your guests.
