It was so lovely to work on this shoot with Flower Magazine for their Sept/ Oct 2018 issue. ‘Talent at the Table’ captured outdoor autumn entertaining at an 1840s estate, nestled within Northwest Philadelphia’s Wissahickon Valley Park. I got to design with dahlias from Laura Symes Andrews, florals from Liberty Plants, and foliage foraged from around the property. Everything was sourced from the northern edges of the city, giving us a hyper-local glimpse of early October in our watershed.
Everything was captured beautifully by Alison Conklin photography, and all the shots can be viewed on her blog. I found out after the shoot that our collaboration would also be included in a book! Living Floral: Entertaining and Decorating with Flowers, by Margot Shaw, is now available from Amazon or your favorite local bookseller. It’s chock full of visual inspiration, personal stories, and tips for infusing daily life with the richness of flowers. Snag your copy today:
