Take a seat!
A more intimate form of hospitality is inviting a small group to have a meal at your table. This could be a ladies’ lunch, a holiday meal or a couples’ dinner party. While the food is important, even necessary…it is not my favorite part. I think a beautifully set table is the cornerstone to a memorable gathering.
Over the years, I have enjoyed setting the table for many different occasions and feel like it is where I can create something special. Looking back, I can see I have a bit of a “style”. I like to layer, incorporate color and bring in nature when I can. Seasonal nods and decor are also part of my standard protocol. When you are hosting, enjoy setting the table as you are really setting the stage for the evening. Bon Appetit!
