Kimberly Schlegel Whitman talks to Gene and Julie about designer William Yeoward and his new book, William Yeoward at Home!
From Kimberly Schlegel Whitman’s blog, 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.”
-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.
– Yeoward 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!
