"my mother-in-law, susie buell of bolinas, gets most of the credit here. She is really creative when it comes to table settings. I'm always learning new little lessons from her. The good one from this night was thatsome of the stems of the gerber daisies were too saggy to put in the arrangements, so we took off the petals and put them around the bases of the candles and then made little flower designs on the table with the petals. It added a little more color to our orange theme."
