I not only enjoyed perusing this book and the beautiful pictures but I know it will be one I will pull off the bookshelf a great deal for good ideas.

Not only does it give pictures of some of Colonial Williamsburg's pretty gardens but it is loaded with ideas for using items from our gardens and nature to create beauty in our homes. This book is especially good for the person who loves to decorate their home with seasonal beauty brought in from the garden.

There is also a very nice section about garden decorations for weddings.

While the book contains many recipes, it is not really a recipe book. Having said that, there are enough interesting garden fresh recipes given that I know I'll enjoy trying a few.

Really love this book. It is so evocative of life in Williamsburg and gives lovely ideas and recipes too. I think Williamsburg is a delight to visit, even though it appears to be called the "revolutionary city" now which I personally think detracts from the wish to portray life as it was in that era.

I was so pleased to find these books from Amazon.com as they were much to heavy to carry home in April when I was there!!

I got this book just as a resource to make a few recipes and table decs for a colonial tea. After paging through the first section, I was hooked -- read the book straight through, and the next day did the same thing all over again. This is a gorgeous, creativity-boosting reference, with unusual ideas and lots of historically inspired recipes. It's already one of my favorite entertaining books!

The newest entertaining and decorating book from Colonial Williamsburg combines touches of elegance with moments of fun and fantasy.
The 212-page book, "From A Colonial Garden: Ideas, Decorations, Recipes" is divided into chapters that take you through the seasons and many special occasions such as weddings, bridal showers and rehearsal dinners. There are 287 color photos and 24 illustrations to guide you every step of the way.
Best of all, most of the projects are simple to create... For example, veggies such as colorful peppers are used to create a zesty-looking centerpiece on the nail-studded wooden cone that's typically covered with apples and sprigs of boxwood...

One of her easiest and sunniest table arrangements is perfect for a summer picnic or cookout. A partially hollowed-out watermelon serves as a container for a bouquet of zinnias, rudbeckia, coreopsis, apple mint and rosemary...

Rountree says the chapters on ideas from the spring garden are her favorite sections because they encourage you to use so many fresh flowers. "I'd like to see more people doing that," she says. "Fresh flowers are so many places these days--in the markets or you can grow your own."
A chapter on garnishes from the spring garden also features Rountree's garden pet--the Cheshire Cheese Hedgehog... English folklore says it's a sign of good luck when you find a hedgehog in your garden. The book features an easy cheese-based recipe for making the hedgehog. "I've had such fun with him, he'll be in every book," she says.
