August 15 • Designing a Tablescape Inspired by H.F. du Pont’s Naturalistic Garden (demo)
H.F. du Pont was renowned for his naturalistic garden, love of floral design, and lavish entertaining. Watch as Heidi Militana, Winterthur’s Floral Coordinator, designs a setting for a table using materials plucked from the natural landscape. Although a contemporary design in a modern setting, this tablescape will be inspired by Mr. du Pont’s love of the out-of-doors.
