TWEAKS+inspiration : A Garden Delight

June 21, 2020

With summer arriving yesterday, it's surely time to think about outdoor entertaining.  I've fallen in love with the idea with having a garden party.  Right now, it has to be a virtual party although we just got word that we can soon socialize in a bubble of 10.  If I was having a party today, I'd love to use this pretty, garden-fresh tablecloth.  If you're like me, you'll be surprised when you take a closer look.


Artist Cathy Graham loves 18th Century floral textile designs. The story goes that she was inspired at a New York City farmers' market to create a table design including fresh bean, pea, radish, miniature eggplant and okra.  Summer its best. 


Watermelon radish, rosemary, pea in and out of the pod - whimsical and oh, so fresh.

Cathy has a new book  - Second Bloom: Cathy Graham's Art of the Table (Vendor Press).  I can't wait to see what else she's created.  In the meantime, Happy Summer!
