Both imagination and vitality abound in this magnificent and eclectic collection of table arrangements for the most diverse occasions. In this elegant bestseller-appearing for the first time in paperback-some seventy internationally recognized personalities and designers share their ideas with Tiffany & Co. for bringing magic and enhancement to a formal dinner party...an office lunch..a back porch supper..or breakfast in bed. In page after page the many treasures of Tiffany's and the panache and originality of such style-setters as Jacqueline de Ribes, Gloria Vanderbilt, Paloma Picasso, Elsa Peretti, Lee Radziwill, and Nancy Kissinger-set the stage for myriad dining entertainment. Mrs. Vincent Astor mixes contemporary china and crystal with family heirlooms for a dinner party in her New York apartment; Cary Grant combines silver with earthenware for a casual but romantic supper on his Beverly Hills terrace; Julia Child selects toneware and flatware for an informal lunch..right in her own kitchen; Andy Warhol pictures himself in jail at a dinner for one; and Diana Vreeland, the Empress of Fashion, imagines how the table might have been set if Voltaire had ever dined with Catherine the Great. No matter how elaborate or simple the meal, there is always a setting-settings for enjoyment, for celebration, for wit, for intrigue, for romance. Rarely have the consummate taste, sophistication, and elegance long associated with the firm of Tiffany & Co. been so eloquently captures as in this sumptuous picture book that sets many moods for dramatic, distinctive dining-whatever the occasion.
