We had a great morning taping a segment for
CBS Talk Philly on Creative Labor Day Picnics.
The segment is about how to use items from around your home
to make a creative Labor Day Picnic Table
while still incorporating family traditions.

flowers from Maple Acre Farms

The flowers were all from Maple Acre Farms,
a local family farm located in Plymouth Meeting.

In addition to amazing local fruits and vegetables,
there are 6 acres of pick-your-own Zinnias available for everyone to enjoy.
Take your camera – great photo opportunities!


Nicole Paloux

Nicole Paloux from The Red Balloon Public Relations
was on site with great insight and support.



Tartlet pans containing a healthy snack of blueberries were placed at each guests seat.
The place cards made from “recycled, recycled” grocery bags were held up with clothes pins.
Dish towels from IKEA were used as napkins.
Spattered tin plates placed on ceramic chargers are a nice change from plastic or paper.
Break out the fun stuff!


the studio


Jamie is the best! It is so fantastic to work together.
She laughs at my jokes and makes the hard work fun.

Pat's Ciarrocchi dress

We all loved Pat’s Ciarrocchi dress!

I have so much respect for Pat and all she has accomplished. I loved talking with her on and off camera. The segment will air on Monday at 12 on CBS.
We hope that everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday weekend

Many Thanks to Donna Benner and the whole CBS Crew!
