Set to Celebrate

Once a year an event comes along that you don't want to miss.  It's the who's who of tablescapes in Hartford with an excellent cause behind it.  You know what I'm talking about- Set to Celebrate!

Set to Celebrate is a fundraiser for the Heritage Rose Garden at Elizabeth Park put on by the Connecticut Valley Garden Club.  In only its third year, it has gained tremendous attention in Connecticut and news of this event is quickly spreading.

S2C is held at the Town and County Club in Hartford, Connecticut and is a houseful of inspiration table tops and mantles adorned with outstanding fresh floral arrangements and are literally, Set to Celebrate!
Click HERE to watch the interview I did with Scot Haney on WFSB's Better Connecticut about S2C. 

I look forward to seeing you at Set to Celebrate this year- it's open to the public on Friday, November 15 and Saturday November 16 from 10am-4pm! Be sure to check our the Set to Celebrate website HERE to buy tickets and for directions to the Town and County Club.

All of the pictures in this post were taken from the 2012 Set to Celebrate.

Fabulous Flowers in Philly

This past weekend my husband and I enjoyed a much needed weekend away and spent it in Philadelphia.  We stayed at The Latham Hotel with is in the Rittenhouse Square section of town.  We were spinning with the choices of restaurants and shops and I killed my camera battery taking pictures of the incredible planters and window boxes that graced nearly every apartment building, store front and maybe even the spaces in between.  Here are a few of my favorites:  

The magic of three: Boxwood, Ornamental Pepper and Creeping Jenny

The Dandelion Restaurant- The food is as yummy as their planters!

Ferns and Sweet Potato Vine

If you are into history, museums, food or flowers, Philly is a terrific place to visit and we are already looking forward to returning!
More tomorrow on The Barnes Foundation and
Eastern State Penitentiary!
