My Book Tour Makes a Stop in Birmingham

Hello friends!

Last week I had the delight of taking a jaunt across the Southeast for a book signing tour. Not only did I get to sign a few copies of The Collected Tabletop while greeting old friends and meeting new ones, I also got to tour two lovely venues.

My first stop was Table Matters in Birmingham, Alabama. I have heard SO many wonderful things about this beautiful tabletop shop — and I’m happy to report that all of them are true! They have a great selection and I so enjoyed visiting with the staff.

They have recently undergone a renovation and I love the new displays they have for napkins and glassware – so fresh! They had just hosted William Yeoward for a book signing and store renovation celebration, so they had some lovely displays of his pieces as well.

They also have the most gorgeous display of linens. I love how they have arranged these selections — just makes you want to put together a tabletop doesn’t it?!?

I also adored this Juliska tablescape they had put together using the Country Estate collection. The sophisticated flint grey is brilliant with the splashes of purple. I also particularly loved the tulipiere in this pattern.

While I was in Birmingham, I also had the pleasure of sharing dinner with four good friends. I dined with the Debbie and Don Hiltz and Michael and Alie Causey at one of chef extraordinaire Frank Stitt’s restaurants– Chez Fon Fon. I must say it was divine!
If you are in Birmingham you must try one of his restaurants.

I also made a stop to Madison, Georgia just a few days after this trip. Don’t miss my recap of this charming town and Belles, Beaux and Gifts coming soon.

Hope to see you then,
