from the september issue of tastebud magazine. i was a geography major in college and have always loved globes and maps. the theme for this issue was 'think global, eat local.' so, i used globes as centerpieces and lined the table with a large world map. you can stack the globes on old atlas' or travel books. use corkboard squares as placemats and create a place card by cutting a flag shape from an old map and attach to a toothpick or pin to stick into the cork.
spin the globe and point - create a menu from wherever you land with locally sourced food.

wedding number one this weekend had bright fall flowers in shades of orange, red and pink-mahogany sunflowers, dahlias, roses and spray roses, chocolate cosmos, ranuculus, cockscomb and smokebush. the reception was at the webster house-lovely traditional venue-i love the cozy rooms and great food!

wedding number two was completely different from the first. the girls wore mint dresses from jcrew and flowers were in shades of white, apple green and light blue-hydrangeas, lilies, roses, ranuculus, cymbidium and dendrobium orchids. the reception was held at the kemper museum of contemporary art-another favorite-lots of clean lines and open spaces. you don't need a lot of decor here with all of the great modern art.
