Summer Table

A beautiful Table makes any meal more enjoyable.  Alfresco dining  happens almost any time of year here in Southern California, and is my most favorite way to entertain.  I always set a table, even on a weeknight, even if it's just two of us. I use what I have in different ways.  Pairing something rustic, with something a little fancy, but never stuffy, or too contrived. I don't believe in saving "the good things" for special occasions. It really only takes a few thing to make a table look special.  Some fresh flowers, a pretty cloth, runner, or scarf...some pretty dishes combined in unexpected ways, and pretty glassware. I like making things pretty, whether it's a table, my food, or my home...Live beautifully.
