Savoring the South
Macon Federation of Garden Clubs
October 17, 2013
James Farmer of Kathleen, Georgia was the speaker for the Second Year for the Macon Federation of Garden Clubs Fund Raiser. There were 35 tables and various decorators and garden club members were recruited to decorate at least one table for eight guests.
This was the second year that I volunteered to decorate a table. I started with a "Berry Picking Tray" which I acquired in Blue Ridge, Georgia a few months ago. You will note that there are eight small baskets in the Tray. I decided to place a food staple in each of the eight baskets.
Black Eye Peas

Deep Red Carnation in a 35 MM Film Canister with water
to keep the flower fresh.
After we enjoyed our Lunch, James Farmer gave a very inspiring talk about how food and presentation have an impact on our daily lives. He shared recollections from his youth and how his love of food and nice decor was developed with the influence of his family and friends.
It was a wonderful event!!!!

Steel Napkin Rings. A Friend of mine lettered the place cards.
