I'm On Katie Today!
Today, Katie Couric’s entire show is devoted to weddings, one of our favorite subjects. Katie is in the process of planning her own wedding and I was happy to make an appearance and share tips, tricks, and great ideas with her and her live audience. Even though it’s the middle of winter, I showed how to decorate and set a fabulous table for a beach wedding theme. What’s wonderful about these creations is that they’re fun and easy and the supplies are readily available. I hope you can tune in to ABC-TV’s Katie.

1 Here I am with Katie Couric on the set of her show.
2 Many of the audience members were brides-to-be and Katie and I discussed how to go about planning for a wedding after becoming engaged.
3 Our escort cards were nestled in a bed of beautiful shells and were adorned with an adhesive pearl - cards and pearls from Martha Stewart Crafts.
5 A sand-colored metallic fabric was used as a table runner. Pearly shells served as cellars for salt and pepper.
6 Smooth pieces of driftwood added to the beach theme.
7 These are the ingredients for the centerpieces - tall glass cylinders, pillar candles, sand, gold glitter, and gorgeous shells.
8 An assortment of shells makes for beautiful centerpieces.
9 The end result is very special with that glittery sand. Even the butter pats were formed in shell molds.
10 Gold paper flowers were made using Martha Stewart Fringe Scissors
13 Here I am with our Weddings expert, Darcy Miller.
14 Jocelyn Worrall, Anthony Luscia, and Judy Morris worked together on these wonderful and creative beach wedding ideas.

19 We also used Martha Stewart Craft stencils to decorate tall glass cylinders with gold coral and shells.
