After the Holidays are over and all the decorations are put away, do you find yourself thinking how bare your table looks?! I do every year, and it's usually around February when I set the table to our February dinner parties. In the Winter, I always look for clean, natural pieces, without a lot of fuss.
Artichokes are great statement piece. Not only to do they look great, but we love cooking with them. Actually, buttered artichokes are a great appetizer for when we have friends over, as well as, spinach artichoke dip. Warm up the table a bit with candles both tall and small, and add a fresh bouquet of flowers. We usually run to Trader Joe's the day before our guests arrive. Add soup bowls for the first course instead of salad in the winter, and you'll be a hero on those chilly nights!
Since I had a lot of cotton hanging around, I incorporated it on the host plates and in the bowl on our china cabinet. When decorating any table, a secret it to always bring something from outdoors in.
