Her book is a mini course in making and arranging artful settings in which family and friends can enjoy a meal, a snack, or just each other’s company.
Instant change with a runner
Judy’s tabletop philosophy? “The best part about a table runner is that it can instantly change the look of your kitchen or dining room and make you happy every time you enter that room. Even if your kitchen is nothing more than a tiny table and a stove, or a counter, a well-placed table runner can make your heart sing every time it comes into view.”
Toppers and accessories for every occasion and season
Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, adding holiday decorations or entertaining family and friends, Judy will help you create one of a kind tablescapes with fabrics and colorways of your choosing.
