The flood of catalogs has begun. Everything you could possibly need and more for all your holiday entertaining can be yours!! Now, all you need is a storage facility to house your off-season furniture and accessories… No disrespect to these mighty retailers- but the reality is you really don’t need a whole new set of everything to feel like you can celebrate the upcoming holidays. Here are some tips to help streamline the seasonal holiday decorating: 1. A set of napkins… Continue reading

And so it begins

Autumn

Tis the season. With the first snap of cool mornings, thoughts are beginning to turn to that Super Bowl of meals, Thanksgiving. Travel plans are being hammered out as well as “Who is doing what?” lists for this decidedly American holiday. Feeling a bit stressed? Could it be because of the shear number of things to make or procure for this one meal? Honestly, who prepares 8-10 dishes for one dinner on a regular basis?! And then comes those awkward… Continue reading

The Butcher, the Baker, and the Candlestick Maker…

The big three. It’s not hard to imagine that once upon a time, these fellows were quite necessary townsfolk. But for the moment, let’s consider the candlestick maker. Light has the ability to extend day into evening, and it wasn’t so long ago that the flame was the source of this light. As a matter of fact, the United States wasn’t fully converted to electricity till the 1930’s (I know, right?!). Before whale oil, gas, and kerosene, this flame came… Continue reading

The Anatomy of a Table

c:u

Riffing off my last post about travel and procurement, I present my table. I’ve written about this piece of furniture often- it’s a classic 1950’s teak table designed by Finn Juhl for Baker, it was MY family table growing up, etc. and really I never really think of tablecloths for it because it is so beautiful (though my mom had a great simple, solid-colored rose pink linen one she put on for Christmas!). Last week, while roaming the crowded streets… Continue reading

Practice, Practice, Practice

voila

Facebook is great for a quick catching up with your friends from all over. You get a quick pic of where their mind is, things they’re doing, and yes, even what they’re eating- I call these “food selfies”- it’s almost like a social media Rorschach Test. While rolling trough my scroll, a friend of mine posted she was at an informal lunch where the host  set the table right before eating. She was most impressed and took a “table-selfie” to… Continue reading

Set for Spring

IMG_0576

Spring has sprung! Match your table to the beautiful blooming outdoors with vintage Mottahedeh Tobacco Leaf porcelain dishes. This is Mottahedeh’s cream-of-the-crop, which is licensed and authorized by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. One of the most prized of the Chinese Export patterns, it was developed circa 1780, probably for the Portuguese and Brazilian markets – though examples have also been found in other European countries and in North America. The design shows the leaves of the… Continue reading
