The Registry in downtown Franklin is set to host author and founder of FLOWER Magazine Margot Shaw on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.
The book signing is to celebrate Shaw’s new book “Living Floral: Entertaining and Decorating with Flowers.”
“I am truly grateful to be able to share my passion with all who read this book… and delighted that the Registry in Franklin is hosting a book party for ‘Living Floral’ this Saturday,” Shaw said. “It has long been one of my go-to emporiums for chic and beautiful treasures.”
The book offers an inspirational and instructive look at florals for readers who share this passion for nature’s bounty. From interior designers Charlotte Moss, Suzanne Rheinstein, and Bunny Williams, and event designer Tara Guérard to floral and garden experts Sybil Sylvester and P. Allen Smith and culinary consultant Alex Hitz, these luminaries show how to incorporate flowers in everyday home decor and present numerous ways to entertain with flair.
Divided into four seasonal sections, plus practical how-tos and invaluable resources, “Living Floral” illustrates how traditionalists and modernists put together tablescapes dressed in everything from simple white plates on vintage textiles to heirloom silver, fine china, and elegant linens—but always with exquisite flowers that form the centerpiece of where we gather with our friends and loved ones.
“By opening the aperture on the prominent role botanicals play in gracious living, we hope to inspire and instruct (with tips and tricks in every chapter, as well as a DIY section in the back of the book),” Shaw said. “It’s important to me that we demonstrate the simplicity and necessity of incorporating nature into everyday life.”
