April Cornell Josephine Collection Spring/Summer 2008
In the Josephine collection, April Cornell has weaved the romantic spirit of being a girly-girl into charming table linens and home decor. The Josephine collection captures every little girls’ dream of the perfect tea party – a dream that stays with us and knows no age limits – a dream of joyful summer days: gentle breezes; gardens trimmed with vibrant green, and perfectly manicured hedges, abloom with pink and yellow flowers surrounding an inviting summer table dressed in beautifully designed linens, dinnerware, and majestically crowned with vintage ceramic vases brimming with colorful summer roses. A delightfully attired table holding the promise of a carefree, charming afternoon spent with a few of your dearest friends’ chatting over tea, cookies,crumpets and dainty tea sandwiches.
The Josephine collection, in signature April Cornell color palettes and floral interpretations, features exquisite florals in assorted pinks and yellows on a lime background. The Josephine collection includes dinnerware, trays, linens, pillows and aprons – everything you need for the perfect summer party.
