Mario Buatta: A Celebratory Luncheon

Recently, we had the great pleasure to honor decorating legend and author of Fifty Years of American Interior Decoration (Rizzoli), Mario Buatta during a celebratory luncheon. The fête commenced with a book signing followed by a private lunch prepared by local Chef Jeffery Davis.

Highlights from the celebratory luncheon honoring Mario Buatta….

Guests enjoyed a seasonally crafted menu and the Buatta-ful inspired tablescape, lavishly dressed in Colefax and Fowler glazed floral chintz.
