Dear Readers:

Happy Labor Day to all of you in the U.S. and a very happy start of the week to all of you outside of the states.  I cannot believe summer has flown by so quickly, but being someone who loves cooler weather, I am looking forward to the upcoming change of season.  Many of you have written in asking for a design tip for last-minute, late-summer gatherings so I am showcasing an idea that I feel is timeless–mixing natural and unexpected elements such as flowers and fruit.

What do you think of the design above? What are your favorite ways to mix-and-match elements from Mother Nature?
