To create this spectacular "walk in the park" effect for the Royal Wedding, live trees from the Royal Gardens were trucked into the sanctuary at Westminster. Extremely beautiful and tasteful.

As the Royal Wedding approaches we look back on the past and those beautiful Royal brides who marched down the isle. Who was and will be the fairest? I believe Friday will tell.

Why not a scarf-like veil and a simple tailored dress (left). The dress on the right was inspired by the "Merry Wives of Windsor." These dresses I designed using my Sunbrella fabrics (yes, all the fabrics including the veil are Sunbrella.) With the weather threat, I thought the use of Sunbrella extremely appropriate for the Royal Wedding Dress.

Such great memories of Easter and the movie: Easter Parade. I will enjoy seeing my grand daughters, and daughters all decked out in their Easter outfits and enjoying the beauty of Easter after Church.

The Skirted Roundtable: Catching up with Joe Ruggiero
This is my recent interview recored on April 11.
Looking to Summer, I see Sunbrella Trax/Persimmon mixed with shades of green from the garden and touches of "hot pink" in the flowers I choose to plant.
I like the mix of these colors against my green garden for Summer 2011 Outdoor Decorating.

My grand daughter brought me a rose from the garden as a gift. Why is it that such a small gift means more to me than a "truckload" of flowers?
I delight in watching my grand children grow and the unconditional love they bring to me.
Enjoy your day.

We like the "laid back" look of Coastal Rooms for Spring. A mix of new Sunbrella patterns: Textures, Suzani, Stripes and Denim; make for a comfortable, serene, easy care room.

This legendary party hosted by Baron Alexis de Rede and his dear friend Marie-Helene de Rothschild in 1969. This spectacular event was held in the Hercules Galleries at the Hotel Lambert on the Ile St. Louis. The wonderful head pieces were designed by St. Laurent.
