Get The Table Talking: Truly Scrumptious with Cathy Graham

I was so fortunate to spend a late January afternoon on Upper East side, New York with my lovely friend Cathy Graham.

We created a whimsical table of florals alongside our Truly Scrumptious tea party pieces.

And what fun we had.

Cathy had been to the market and discovered all sorts of gorgeous flowers: muscari, fritillaria; lily of the valley; vivid pansies; winding clematis; bulging peonies; upright tulips; gentle poppies to name a few. The tones were perfectly complimentary to our Truly Scrumptious tea party range. Heavenly!

Cathy had created masses of tiny bud vase arrangements which took your breath away with their singular stature, but gentle massed effect. In addition she had created some lovely larger table arrangements.

Cathy had brought some of her 1950’s dolls and mini debutante girls to our imaginary tea party. One thing led to another and soon we were dressing these fine ladies in Truly Scrumptious napkins and didn’t they look just ready to take New York fashion by storm. Truly Fashionable ladies!!

The afternoon showed how laying a table can let the imagination and creative self have fun. With Cathy’s whimsical additions and stunning flowers, the guests are sure to talk and talk.
