Spring is such a wonderful time to entertain. My Book Club is coming next week and I’m sharing the table that I have prepared in anticipation of their arrival. When hosting an intimate event like Book Club, if at all possible, I like to have the food and beverage in the same room in which all of my guests will be. I find that if we’re in the midst of a big discussion that guests are not going to wander into another room to get a bite to eat or another beverage. If you can keep it in the same room as the discussion, your guests are more likely to participate in the discussion and also partake of the spread that you’ve prepare. The table holds the food and I’ve added various small tables to accommodate the beverages. Dessert will be served in the dining room. Check back next week for the dessert table.
As I’m hosting next week, the food isn’t present but I like to serve savory treats that can be enjoyed throughout the discussion. If you’re in my Book Club, then shhh …Mums the word.
The wine of your choosing, along with the glasses are right in the room in which we will be discussing the book we read. You don’t need to venture far to fill your glass.
I don’t think I’ve ever been amongst a group of women, in which someone isn’t watching their weight, so a salad is always welcome.
A large bowl can be used as a vessel to chill wine.
The vintage flatware clustered in the lady is echoed in the dishes.
Spring pea pods usher in a spring salad.
With NY temperatures not being exactly where we’d like them to be, we’re coaxing in a spring garden party.
Totally in love with the varying motifs on these plates.
I’m happy to be joining the Scoop Group for their Spring Tablescape tour.
