Yesterday I took time off from my seasonal chores to go to a “Strawberry Tea” with my sister. It was held at Cormaria, a beautiful retreat house on the Bay, in nearby Sag Harbor. http://www.cormaria.org/
As you can see it was very cloudy, and quite humid.
The views are fantastic!
Before the tea, we were treated to a centerpiece demonstration by Michael Grim.
If you watch Ina, The Barefoot Contessa, you will recognize him. He is on her show frequently, he does her flowers.
He demonstrated several kinds of easy centerpieces.
Michael is very generous to Cormaria with his time and talent . Everyone got to take home a beautiful long stemmed rose.
He gave away everything he made.
He was very personable and we chatted about another Ina favorite, my neighbor, TR . If you watch the show, you will know him.
You can read about TR’s house here.
On the other hand, the Kardashians, omg,, have rented a home nearby.
They opened a store in town and needed a little place to lay their heads.
$235,000 in rent for the summer.
They have guards at the driveway. I have to pass it every time I go in or out.
I wouldn’t know them if I fell over them, I don’t watch the show, nor do I know why they are famous. I think they have a lot of weddings or something. >)
So besides planting and cleaning pollen, that’s what I have been doing.
Don’t forget the Summer Whimsy table challenge this Wed.
Remember this one, with the light up bathing beauty frogs?
Or the watermelon umbrella holder centerpiece?
Hope you will join in! It has to be a new table, no repeats, with a whimsical summer theme!
Thanks for stopping by!
