Rainy Birthdays

Sometimes our customers ask us to create special tablescapes for events in their homes. I am sharing with you a birthday celebration - that took place on a dark, dreary Chicago day. We wanted to brighten things up, so hot pink and orange were the flower colors. Using jeweled pins, we created a secret garden on the center of the table. We mixed antique china patterns with bright floral centers, and threw sequined tulle down the middle of the table. With the soft candlelight on the gloomy day, it was a magical table. The small arrangements were for the powder room and conservatory, where appetizers were served.

I truly appreciate all things beautiful...once an art director for two Chicago magazines, now turned trompe l'oeil/decorative painter, I am not easily impressed when I walk into a home decor store, but I find something like Romancing the Home to be masterfully unique. It's an amazing haven, where vignettes and "must have" treasures reign supreme. Susan, you and your creative team work magic by selecting, layering, embellishing, and "prettifying" truly delicious finds and your sense of style is divine. I am inspired each time I step into Romancing the Home, to get back... and romance mine. Thank you!
