I always like to set a beautiful and thoughtful tablescape. The whole eating experience is an all-encompassing feeling of sight, taste, and smell! You already know how obsessed I am with cooking but I also love to create an atmosphere of calm and beauty so you can enjoy your meal. This is a time where you can gather family and friends to engage with one another, catch up, share stories, laugh, and re-boot. I really do love it when we find ourselves still sitting after dinner and we just talk. Not all the time but when it happens I take it all in and thankful for the time we have to be together. For me, food is love and I want my family and friends to feel that!
Over the years I’ve collected many dishes, napkins, placemats, vases, utensils, platters, glasses, cups, and unusual table toppers! I am constantly on the lookout for new and fun things to add to my collection. I shop all kinds of stores, Check out Elizabeth Lamont, in Pacific Palisades, CA. Crate & Barrel, William Sonoma, Sur La Table, Bed Bath & Beyond, World Market.
The beautiful table setting below is from Bricks & Beams in Westlake Village, Ca. I have many beautiful dishes and accessories from her store! I am featuring them in my new ebook on pasta! Here is a taste, (pardon the pun) of whats comiing!
