It was a gorgeous morning with a slight cool breeze, a refreshing respite from 95+ degree weather here in Virginia. A truly perfect day to work outside.
My first of three tablescapes was to be a casual gathering of friends, a little rustic and a little chic, and really easy for anyone to emulate. I used an array of specific items from my shop to create the soothing ambiance for the table and then added pieces of nature from around the house such as grapevines, leaves, and hydrangeas. Everything needed to be a pretty backdrop to the main event, Sylvie's delectable dishes. Nature was all around in this setting, so it was fun to be able to bring some of that feeling to the table itself.
Here is just a little peek at what to expect. These are all my own photographs. Molly's final photos I'm sure will wow you! Sylvie Rowand's food column, along with several photographs from this shoot, will be in the upcoming AUG/SEPT issue of FLAVOR Magazine, so be on the look out!
