About the Author
Gay Estes is the author and illustrator of The Church Ladies Guide to Divine Flower Arranging and the illustrator of the Garden Club of Houston’s Perennial Favorites: Portable Food. She, Karen Terrell and a team of dedicated women from the Garden Club of Houston have gathered the best festive fare, party tips and seasonal plant decorating suggestions from the club’s many talented hostesses. Organized in 1924, the Garden Club of Houston’s purpose is to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening; to restore, improve and protect the quality of the environment through programs and action in the fields of conservation, civic improvement, and education.
Proceeds from the sale of both Favorites books support the Garden Club of Houston’s many worthwhile projects for Houston parks, native plants, organic gardening, and beautification endeavors.
