A Wonderful Time With Eddie Ross and a Giveaway!

A few weeks ago Sister and I had the wonderful pleasure of

meeting designer Eddie Ross here in Arkansas

. The Fine Arts Club of Arkansas hosted a fun-filled luncheon at the Arkansas Governor’s mansion, in which Eddie was the presenter. But before we give you all the details of the event, here’s a little more about the man himself,

Eddie Ross

A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Eddie began his illustrious career in television. He started as the food editor for Martha Stewart Living, of which he would eventually become the Senior Style Editor, and was later the Associate Design Director for Food Network. After his career in television, Eddie ran his own catering business in which he further honed his decorating skills, which led him to his following stint as the Associate Decorating Editor at House Beautiful.

Eddie Ross is now the co-owner of a lifestyle company, along with Jaithan Kochar, in which they specialize in interior design and styling services, event production, and an online boutique for vintage tabletop and giftware. Eddie also has his very popular blog site titled ‘

In case you missed the luncheon hosted at the Arkansas Governor's mansion, here are some pictures that capture the fun event.

Eddie and Jaithan were both very warm and gracious.  They mingled for photographs and answered questions both before and after the presentation.

Eddie  demonstrated  some really  neat projects that were both simple and affordable.

This would be a great centerpiece on a buffet or beverage table.  Notice the punch cups hanging from the tree.

This arrangement of white roses and fresh eucalyptus in a silver bowl turned out beautiful and very easy to do.

This was a favorite idea.  A wreath fashioned from a bent coat hanger and inexpensive glass ornaments.  Wouldn't this be beautiful hanging on a mirror?

Beautiful tablescapes are always a part of our Sunday Supper Series.  We are always on the look out for new ideas.   Here are some wonderful tablescapes designed by Eddie Ross.

All beautiful, but I particularly like the simplicity of the  last image with the green and white.
