Martha Stewart Living June 2012
Our julep cups are filled here with magnolia blossoms amid a dramatic mix of garden greenery and other understated blooms, for a Father's Day brunch. From this June 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Living: BRUNCH Here’s a simple, summery way to celebrate Dad: Set a handsome table using decanters, tumblers, and even an ice bucket or two, all filled with a dramatic mix of garden greenery and understated blooms. PLAY WITH HEIGHT Sculptural leaves in glass bottles set off by a few white flowers in julep cups are festive but not frou-frou. Alternate tall arrangements with low bouquets to add texture. USE WHAT YOU HAVE In addition to barware, empty liquor bottles with striking silhouettes can stand in for vases. MIX PATTERNS Striped napkins offset the floral abundance. We purchased a few yards of seersucker fabric, cut it into squares, and frayed the edges to keep it casual.
