Why is it that we usually wait for visitors or birthdays for it to be an occasion?
Surely every day weâ??re alive is occasion enough and cause to celebrate? I decided years ago that mealtimes and tea times should be occasions. I started setting the table using my favourite crockery, serviettes and my favourite table dÃ©cor items, creative cutlery!
Salad never looked this good
To me, there is nothing better than a salad served with lovely servers – it makes a simple salad look amazing!
Stunning cutlery has a way of saying mealtimes are important. Otherwise you may as well just use plastic cutlery.
What about tea times?
I always feel like I am spoiling myself rotten when I take out my fine china teacup, use my beautiful heart scoop ladle teaspoon and make tea just for me! It makes me feel like I am having high tea at Tiffanyâ??s.
For me, decadence is eating that oh so lovely dark moist chocolate cake with a gorgeous cake fork. The heart shaped ends make me feel like I am lost in a world of whimsy and pretty.
So the next time you feel like prettying up your life – set your table using your best crockery, cutlery and linen and celebrate life!
