Tabletop Tuesday: Latke Lust

Tabletop Tuesday celebrates Hanukkah with these gold and white latke plates. Gold flatware and gold trimmed glassware complete this joyful place setting.

Have you eaten latkes? They are delicious deep-fried potato pancakes. Some people top them with applesauce. Some pair their latkes with various jellys.

Learn more about Hanukkah via myjewishlearning.com. Try making them for yourself with the Food Network receipe.

Tabletop Tuesday: Blue Ground

Tabletop Tuesday sets your place at the table with a harmonious connection of earth and sky. Brown and sky blue are two colors that timeless balance each other. Perhaps the brown reminds us of the ground and the blue the sky. Somewhere in between we exist.

The foundation of linens is laid with navy blue material with a vintage scarf, filled with fun geometric shapes and the brown and blue color story, as the runner. I chose organic shapes of dishware for this setting. The bottom blue plate is a perfect circle but the middle brown plate and blue bowl are not exact circles which makes them visually and texturally interesting. I chose a navy, pinstripe napkin with a brass napkin ring. The setting is finished with brown vintage glassware and vintage rosewood and brass utensils from Thailand.

Bon appétit with flair and style!

Tabletop Tuesday – Black + White Pop Art

Tabletop Tuesday features this black and white place setting with a mix of geometric shapes, diagonal lines, modern flatware and black glassware. The pink flowers in a white vase pop off this black linen. The presentation is like a canvas of dynamic pop art.

Beauty is the perfect start to a delicious meal. Decorate boldly. Eat consciously.
