Win Wednesday! Willliam Yeoward's "At Home"
I have been a big William Yeoward fan for quite some time now. I love all of the treasures in his tabletop and entertaining line but I especially love his books! He has a great style all of his own and I am so happy that my sister, Kari, recently registered for some of his crystal so that I can borrow it!
One thing I won't need to borrow is his new book William Yeoward At Home and you won't need to borrow one either if you win our give away! Check out the end our our blog for entry details and good luck!
Here are a few of William Yeoward's tips for entertaining:
-Alfresco dining is perfect for an October in Texas. Yeoward writes that "fresh air sharpens one's taste buds." Take a peek at my Fine Living video on Al Fresco Entertaining.
-Make pillows and cushions for your dining benches and chairs from remnants of damaged tablecloths.
-Use tall glasses or pitchers as vases for a casual alfresco style.
-"Dining rooms are like chameleons - their appearance can be changed to suit different circumstances." For Yeoward, setting the dining room table is all about establishing ambiance. The items you use and the style you set will determine the mood of the dinner.
- I wholeheartedly agree with Yeoward when he writes "don't be shy, bring out the best china and crystal, reach for the silver, light the candles." Your beautiful things are meant to be enjoyed!
