For the Old Town Tustin Promenade Home Tour, I decorated three tables in the garden of a charming bungalow. The family who lives here is laidback, sporty, and sweet. They spend a lot of time outdoors. It was fun to bring over some French decor for a day.

The Villa Park Women’s League is a motivated, talented group of women. They crossed every T, dotted every i, and left no stone unturned organizing their Home Tour. As a result, the event went off without a hitch. It was a gorgeous group of homes with a huge turnout of attendees.

I decorated three tables at an historic home on a large lot with a mature citrus grove.
