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 in her flower room in NYC where she creates her arrangements. Oh, to have a flower room!
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!
