What a fantastic weekend here in upstate New York—warm and full of
sun! After last week's al fresco fête we threw for the Storque (not to mention a whirlwind of meetings in the city), dinner with friends on our porch seemed like the perfect way to wrap up the weekend.


The table blends vintage creamware, yellow Bakelite, and French Ivory, all from the flea market in a palette inspired by nature. Forsythia is everywhere these days—lush, vibrant, and, best of all, free! So I thought, why not use what I already have to make a fast, inexpensive flower arrangement that's beautiful and sophisticated?
