Today is officially spring; and, it is also the Persian new year, Nowruz, which is celebrated all over the world. Tonight I am setting my table with a nod to the new year incorporating talismans to conjure good luck, health and fortune! Happy New year!
I like to get a head start on setting my table for any event, whether it be a simple, weeknight dinner with family or a special luncheon with an honored guest. Visits back and forth to the table allow me to add special touches and textures without having to gather my thoughts and everything else all at once. Tonight, I am using my new Pansy Dinner Plates aside my vintage glassware. Small pops of color are starting to appear outside… I’ll speed up the blooming inside!
The chopsticks were a gift from a wedding I attended of my good friend. She lived in Hong Kong for some time and she added many Hong Kong-inspired touches to her New England wedding. I love that I think of her and that special day every time I use these. Thank you, Susan and Morris.
On March 21, the celestial event for which I have been waiting will occur — the vernal equinox. This moment in the heavens ushers in what we Earthlings call “springtime.” I am ready! Enough of gray skies, snow shovels, and mud masquerading as grass. Setting my table with elements that tease me of warm days to come make these last cold mornings bearable. Shimmery, Persian Carpet Dinner Plates, Birds and Bees Salad Plates, Gems Small Bowls, Plume Napkins, gleaming crystal and silverware, accented with natural elements dotted around the table, make for a perfect gathering spot. Treat your family and friends to a little spring sunshine!
Crystal Napkin Rings are the perfect finishing touch on this table.
Nothing says, “FEED ME” like a big fat snowstorm. As our sun set yesterday, a soft blanket of snow began to fall over the Washington, D.C. area. By dinnertime, we were locked in and went full throttle — a giant platter of spaghetti and meatballs. It was so flavorful, zesty, warming, and colorful. Our full bellies and the quiet of falling snow delivered all of us into a heavy slumber.
Waking to a serene landscape of white was the perfect punctuation to our noodle-filled night. Happy snow day!
And just like that, 2018 is about to close down. For good. Good! Here’s looking to a brighter year ahead. Wishing everybody peace, love and clarity in the new year!
In five short days, The Feast of The Seven Fishes dominates many dinner tables all over the world. It is evening of contrasts with all of the typical holiday visuals that command the season. Serve your Seven Fishes with festive, oceanic style.
During the holidays, I like to bring as much color and fun as possible to my table settings. I think of the month of December as 31 nights of limitless table design possibilities. The absence of color outside inspires me to dress my table in just that — color…lots of it!
Pansy Napkins and Small Plates span the seasons and add just the perfect bit of color to any table setting. Birds and Bees Salad/Dessert Plates and our ultra luxurious Persian Carpet Dinner Plates set the stage for colorful night!
