For a springtime luncheon on the lawn of Rollins' home, rounds were covered in vibrant chinoiserie tablecloths. "Centerpieces of goldfish in bowls, a nod to my inner Auntie Mame, were set atop bright orange lacquered plant stands," writes Rollins. Silver julep cups holding pink peonies surrounded the bowls. "Napkins with colorful, embroidered floral letter Rs, bamboo-handled flatware, amethyst-colored water glasses, and aqua-bordered tented name cards written in a beautiful calligraphic hand in yellow ink tied the look together."
