Overview

In her first book, Dreams From Home, Tracy Porter tells her story of transforming an old stone farmhouse in the country into an enchanting environment while starting a new life and business with her husband, John.

Now, this young and talented designer taps into her daring whims and audacious spirit as she leads readers through an escapade of artful entertaining in Tracy Porter's Inspired Gatherings. As she does in all areas of her life, Tracy approaches her entertaining with an explorer's vision for getting out of the comfort zone. She enthusiastically breaks all the table setting rules while her "prep course" chapter helps the reader anticipate their needs for creating fantasy occasions. Tracy encourages readers to work with what they have while suggesting ways to gain a new perspective on a traditional idea.

In Inspired Gatherings, Tracy combines vibrant colors, draws from her limitless inspirations and blends the many styles, textures, and patterns that tickle her fancy to create fantasy occasions to share with friends and family. Tracy combines unlikely elements to concoct special details such as gifts, invitations, and environments all with a touch of whimsy.

Drawing from her own desire for instant gratification and entertaining, Tracy provides time-savers that don't sacrifice fun or fancy as well as a multitude of quick and inexpensive ideas for pulling impromptu or milestone events together. Porter's sophisticated appeal will stimulate savvy hosts as well as beginners with hundreds of magical yet simply executed ideas.
