The Gift of LilacsMay 1, 2018
We were given these lovely lilacs as a gift the other day. My mind went instantly to setting a supper table for two around them. The Barbara Eigen vase would be the perfect vessel for the blooms which set the ‘green’ theme. Then it was just pulling things and piecing them all together. Setting a table is very much like putting together a puzzle. The only difference is you get to decide whether the pieces fit or not.
I had someone ask me on Instagram after I posted one of these images if we ever just warmed up a TV dinner? Which totally made me smile, as I loved them when I was a kid. We both love to cook so we don’t, but we do order out often. Even then, I like to set a table. The world and life has become so busy, I find the ritual of it slows down time. Then we get to sit and enjoy the meal, time slows even further.
