The art of table decoration enters the unexpected with Rose Fournier’s original designs. The third generation in a family of Swiss-French transformative decorators, Fournier has a knack for fun, creative entertaining without the fuss of endless shopping. The whimsical settings in Creative Tables forgo expensive tableware and accessories in favor of elements and ingredients already found in the typical home. Enjoy the charm of a centerpiece created with a book by Voltaire, discover the versatility of various types of pasta as an artful replacement for flowers, and step onto the set of an Audrey Hepburn movie adorned with classic pearls and red roses. Each scene is so radically different from the one before, it’s easy to forget they were all created in the same room with the very same set of all-white dishware--and of course, the menu always complements the decor. With photography highlighting the inventive details of each setting, the magic tricks of Creative Tables will motivate readers to try Fournier’s chic approach for their next soiree.
