Beautiful Table Settings

One day as we sat surrounded by family & friends at our dinner table, my grandma said "You taste food as much with your eyes as your mouth!" When I quizzed her if she meant about the appearance of food & wine, she explained that she loved the simple way I had set the table & how a table-setting contributes to the overall ambience. Her words stayed with me. I had not paid much attention during that particular dinner but had laid out my best China & arranged some flowers. But I knew I could do more. I started researching a few ideas & was surprised at the inspiration available all around me to "wow" my guests. I started experimenting with quirky tableware, flowers, candles, colorful patterned napkins, glassware, seasonal blooms & voila..... the prettier my table looked , my guests started enjoying dining at my place.
