A Garden tour at a French Country Estate in Newport Rhode Island

Matthew Mead took me to a book launch party last month. 
It was held  at the French Country estate of retired food editor of 
Bon Appetit magazine, Bettie Bearden Pardee. 
Bettie is the author of the blog Private Newport, 
and gives her readers the insider view of wonderful Newport Rhode Island.
Bettie is featured in the new book, Entertaining at Home, by Ronda Carmen. 
 Matthew was the principal photographer and I shared many fascinating chats with him 
as he traveled the country shooting the homes of designers 
as they showed him how they entertain at home.  
Ronda's book is just wonderful~ you will be inspired with all the entertaining ideas
and recipes and ways you can invite others to your home to party in so many ways!
Join us as we step behind the gated entrance of this truly magical French Country home
and poke around her gardens and outbuildings soaking it all in.
