For me, nothing is a greater gift than being invited to someone’s home for dinner. It is a treat not only because of the companionship and yummy food but because the table always tells me something about the host.
This one is no exception starting with the table linens, all hand stitched by a loved German grandmother, that communicate a fondness for tradition and family heirlooms.
The simplicity of the linens is complemented by the accompanying accessories, small vases of flowers
and candlesticks filled with seaglass that the hostess collected on walks along the shore. That tells me she pays attention to what is around her.
The wooden chargers are indicative of an appreciation for handcrafted items
and dishes of different colors show an artistic flair.
Put it all together and there is a table that not only has character but is warm and inviting.
Next time you go to dinner at a friend’s home, pay attention to the details and see what you learn that may be new. There might be a surprise in store.
i so appreciate your visit and especially the comments you leave behind
