The dynamic design duo of Mississippians Catherine Strange and John David Williams have joined forces to produce two new books -- "One Vase 52 Different Ways" and "Beautiful Weddings" -- in the popular Fearless Entertaining series.
Strange will visit Columbus Wednesday, Oct. 24, for a book signing from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Pizazz at 2118 Highway 45 N. She will also demonstrate several floral designs found in the books.
Both 208-page coffee table books are lushly illustrated with color photographs.
Just as the little black dress has become a wardrobe staple, if a hostess could have only one vase, Strange and Williams recommend a clear glass cylinder as the most versatile choice.
"One Vase 52 Different Ways" covers designs for every season using items from the home, yard and even refrigerator. Most take fewer than 15 minutes to arrange.
"Beautiful Weddings" addresses the engagement, ceremony, reception and parties leading up to the special wedding day. The floral demonstrations and book signing are open to the public.
