I am feeling much better now after my surgery. I have looked forward with anticipation and excitement to the day of this grand celebration in honor of the 8 best designers who inspired us through their gifted eye for beauty. Thanks to all who dropped in yesterday with warm wishes, you just made my day! As proven by so many women out there, one great attribute we have is resilience. I must start moving before the limousine arrives. Catherine would love to see you, too. Come over later and meet us at the Shiny Pebble...it will be fun!
I heard Eddie Ross will design a tabletop for Catherine and I am hoping I will get a seat next to him. I am looking forward to get some tips on using flea market finds in a well designed tablescapes.
I would like to present a gift of appreciation to these great designers who had inspired me every Wednesday with their design presentations. First things first, I made a phone call to the best floral artist designer based in Carmel, California, Michael Merritt, to confirm the arrival of the flower arrangements he made for Catherine's guest designers. Michael also created this special flower bouquet (below) for Catherine.
I have to get started packing the hostess gift.
And a variety pack of designers matches
and two of my favorite cylindrical designer matches.
I am wearing this ensemble hand picked by Rachel. Ann happened to wear this for Rachel's photo shoot.
I heard the talented and fabulous Splenderosa will be sharing some of her favorite musicals for the party, visit her blog to know why. I am looking forward to a relaxing evening and mingle with all my friends,
and end the night with a feast of my favorite chocolate cake.
