Décor: Celebrating Spring



Décor: Celebrating Spring

Planning the décor for the Spring Menu allowed me to showcase my spring-summer china for the first time this season. The baby blue salad palates with intricate gold palm frond motif from French luxury porcelain house Bernardaud worked perfectly with modest white dinner plates. (I like to mix and match my dinnerware, so feel free to be adventurous! I’m always in search of interesting additions, even if it’s just a set of new salad plates.) Because my plates have such an elaborate design, I kept the rest of the table calm, a simple table runner and napkins in light gray. For the place cards, I used white cards from Crane and added a personal touch by handwriting the names of our guests. Create an elegant ambiance by using soft candle light and light lounge music, like Café Del Mar Dreams or something more upbeat like Brazilian Beat (Life Night & Day Rio, Nu Bossa Style, Samba & Brazilian Beats).
