Source of inspiration

The latest issue of the Pottery Barn catalog had this adorable bird house salt & pepper shaker.  I finally used the gift certificate I've had for eons and purchased it as the inspiration for an upcoming shower.  Can't wait to share the photos!

New Find: All-natural dinner plates

These great plates and bowls from Verterra are about as green as you can get!  They're actually fallen leaves that are gathered and processed into disposable dinnerware.  I'm using these for an upcoming event and am so excited about displaying something that is both good looking and environmentally friendly.  After use don't toss them in the trash, they can be composted and will degrade in approx 2 months according to the manufacturer.

TSE 2010 New Orleans pt 2

My favorite table at the showcasing event was the one from Sasha Souza.  And not only did I love the finished tablescape, but I helped create a little piece of it!  It was fun working with such a great team.  Leah Lowery is a floral wonder, seeing Sasha's vision and making it come to life. And her other office leads are cut from the same mold, Suzanne Dement from Tennessee and Kim Laga from Denver.

I thought I would just be helping get things set up, but they asked me to arrange some of the beautiful flowers.  Above are two of my contributions (the small yellow arrangements).  Thanks Sasha for the opportunity to participate!
