Tablescape Tuesday: Carolyne Roehm

Carolyne Roehm is one of my favorite tastemakers.  She is so elegant and has impeccable style.  A career highlight for me was the day that I was able to help her fix her photo-slide show presentation before a speaking engagement.  Her keynote presentation wasn’t working on the country club’s PC computer system so I excitedly came to the rescue as I had stressed over the same issue just a few months before at a different speaking engagement!
If you haven’t had the chance to hear her speak, please find a way!  Hunt her down! Stalk her!  Chase her until you find her because she is so inspiring! From fashion design to floral design, she has truly become a style maven!  
I first met her many many years ago when I was a teenager and she was giving a floral design presentation on a family trip we were on.  I watched her arrange flowers and knew then that I wanted to go to flower school in Paris just as she had.
I have bundles of each of her books, and I love giving them out as gifts.  Order them today if you don’t already have them!

Clearly, she loves blue and white as much as I do!

    I always love reading that other people out there share my love of Carolyne Roehm! I am from St. Louis and attended the same college (Washington University), where I also studied fashion design/history. Sadly, I was several years too late – but the stories of her fabulous personality live on! Thanks for posting!
