Recently, I had the pleasure of working with one of my favorite French brands – Christofle. They approached me to be a part of their new series, “My Christofle Table,” and – as a long-term fan – I was more than happy to oblige. Their flatware was on our wedding list many many (many, many) moons ago, and their vintage pieces are always something I look out for when I’m at antique fairs.
They asked me to pick some favourite items from their collection and create a tablescape as if I were entertaining friends. This was easy, because that is exactly what I did! We had friends over for a Sunday lunch, and it was the perfect opportunity to create a lay a summery table with flowers and the gorgeous goods from Christofle.
Laying tables definitely seems to be a big part of our life here. Taking the time to sit down to eat, whether we are two, six or sixteen is simply the way things happen. My husband and I both work from home, and we always pause midday to sit down together, even its just for a salad. When we invite guests, sometimes the tables are fancy and sometimes the beauty is in the simplicity. A time to share, to connect and to recharge our batteries.
How about you? Are sit-down meals a part of your everyday routine?
