Come sit with me for awhile and see what I’m bringing to the table …

No, I know you can’t make the snow go away, or pump up the bone chilling temperatures outside, but you sure can chase the brrrrrr out of the winter blues. But.— oh pleeeease— stop. I ask sooo little of you, allow me my buts. Why, you ask? Because it makes me happy. Excuse me? I heard that giggle, and cluck of the tongue. What? Do you think I can’t hear you? This is me giggling. OMG. I was just challenged by someone in the gallery to chase the brrrrr out of the winter blues. Hmm. I’ll tell you what people. I accept that challenge.

Who could possibly avoid the infusion exuding from this passionately bold table setting. Intense, strong, see-me, brilliant I’m-in-it-to-win-it colors. Colors that awaken senses in you that have laid dormant. Hmmmmm. Sure. Go ahead and think about it and get back to me.

Below, a close up of one of 10 different place settings pulling its mix from exotic places with vintage glass in edgy cobalt blue, a dinner plate layered with a vibrant linen napkin, then stacked with a hand-painted Japanese dish. You cannot miss the burnt orange edge and floral center, and topped off with a plate from Morocco. Cobalt blue glass votive holders dot this table waiting for the magic moment; a moment that will take your guests to the land of a mesmerizing performance. Sooo go ahead, strike that match, light those candles, and watch as your guests delight in the magic of “the dance of the flames.”
