"My mother being British, her world and thus my world growing up always revolved around gardens and flowers. Setting the table was important, and always having fresh flowers was big part of that, along with keeping your silver polished. The best tip is – while valuing them - don't feel precious about your possessions, simply use your good china, linens, silver and crystal, mix them up and enjoy them. What good is it to keep things hidden way in closets and drawers? And Mother's Day? Think pink, think pretty, think love."
