Home—honoring the times we share there, treasuring the traditions and generations it represents, and rediscovering the joy our homes and gardens bring to our lives.
A rich tapestry of lush tabletops, glorious garden bouquets, sweet family heritage, and refreshed Southern décor are the essence of James Farmer’s enduring appeal! This book fuses all his creative passions in a celebration of the seasons. In stories and pictures, James takes the reader on a tour of his two homes and gardens, with tablesettings for celebratory occasions throughout the year. Décor for his Winter Dinner, Camellia Celebration, Feast Among the Foxgloves, Birthday Dinner, Al Fresco Fall Dinner, Dahlia Dinner, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Gatherings will inspire readers to mark each passing season with their love ones in observance of the small joys that truly make our lives big.
