Hello my dear readers,
How are you today? I hope everything is fine so far but if it’s not fine, get a deep breath, open your mind, put some positivity in it, smile and then you’re ready to move on! I know it sounds difficult, but believe me, is always depending on us, on how we see it.
I have one question for you today. Do you like to entertain?
I have heard a lot of people when buying a home, they say perfect to entertain! or no, to small to entertain…like the most important thing when buying a home is the space to entertain!
Honestly, I do like to entertain even if my apartment is small. I guess the atmosphere is most important not the space! You can have fun and eat in style even when you don’t have that perfect patio or huge kitchen or dining room for your guests.
What is important though is how you set the table! Did you know that at the table, dinnerware is the first item that meets the diners’ eyes?
Let’s see how to set the table for a casual, informal dinner.
I know this was used to be common knowledge some years back, but in today’s fast and busy world, knowing how to set a table is somehow overlooked. Or even if we know how to do it, we consider it is not necessary. I remember one time I had an Asian guest back home in Italy, and he was very impressed that the table was perfectly set for lunch even if was a casual lunch at home. I always set the table even when I’m eating alone. What? I don’t deserve it? I surely do! And so do you!
You don’t need a “special occasion” to treat you, your loved ones or your guests well. You don’t need a “special occasion” to place a tablecloth, a plate, a napkin, a fork, a knife and a glass on your table. Yes, this is a casual, informal dinner setting table! A tablecloth, a plate, a napkin, a glass, a fork, a knife, and a spoon if you’re a soup lover too! But that’s it! Is that too much? Nope! Is that simple!
Every day, every meal is a special occasion that we should enjoy! Treat yourself and your loved ones well! Be grateful! It is very simple!
You are not too good in the kitchen? Me either! But don’t worry! Food is very simple! Just listen to it! Keep it always simple! Simple ingredients, simple processes and the result is amazing! And with a simple finishing touch of a stunning tableware, your simple meal will become an experience to remember!
You don’t believe me? Try it! Is simple as that!
