Designer Gwen Love
Gwen Love found her flair for flower arranging when she learned the art through the Wadsworth Atheneum Women’s Committee where she was a co-chair of Fine Art and Flowers. She continued to refine this interest during her involvement with many events at the Hill-Stead Museum and then, more recently, at the Town & County Club where she chaired the Flower Committee for two years. Gwen is currently the chair of the T&C’s Interiors Committee.
Creating small scenarios for Set to Celebrate has been a source of immense pleasure and satisfaction over the years. A personal highlight for Gwen was the French Bistro setting they constructed to convey the sense of a Parisian café in a tiny space. Against the classic black and white backdrop under the awning, the vibrant colors of the floral centerpiece suggested a real sense of joie de vivre.
This year Gwen will be creating a small setting with, Jan Hickcox, a good friend and fellow member of the Garden Club of Hartford. We are sure it will be as elegant and thoughtful as previous settings.
