Branch signs 'Savannah Style' at MSU Florist today


November 29, 2011

MSU alumnus Brandon Branch, design director for Paula Deen Inc., will sign copies of his book "Paula Deen's Savannah Style" today [Nov. 29], from 10 a.m.-noon in the University Florist.

Co-written with Deen, the 224-page interior design book features home decorating tips with a Southern flair. To keep all aspects of the 2010 Simon & Schuster release realistic, they insisted that accompanying photographs be taken during specific seasons of the year.

The 2000 MSU graduate and Tylertown native grew up with a love for gardening and floral design instilled by his grandmother. Those passions led him to the Starkville land-grant institution to pursue a degree in horticulture. (For more, visit www.brandonbranch.com.)
