Local author published “breathtaking” tabletop designs

Kathryn Greeley of Waynesville has published The Collected Tabletop, a book showcasing ways to create “easy, fun, and breathtaking tabletop designs that will make any occasion memorable,” says its publisher.

For each of the 13 events described in The Collected Tabletop, Greeley details the history and significance of specific items from each collection, ranging from heirloom china and crystal to intricate art glass and colorful majolica combined with hand-thrown pottery.

Chock-full of inspired ideas for hosting high-end theme parties, The Collected Tabletop includes photographs of place settings and tabletop decorations; elegant, painted menus; favors and floral arrangements; and easy-to-prepare recipes, such as Independence Day Flag Tart, Skillet Drop Biscuits, and Goat Cheese Truffles.

Greeley is owner of Kathryn Greeley Designs and has worked in the design industry for 30 years.
