TABLE SETTING: Salt and Pepper

I am very sorry to say that I have had to postpone Nan Mabon's Wednesday column
The London Bulletin 
until tomorrow; The pile of work on my desk on my return from my 2 1/2 week trip to Morocco has made very difficult to stay  on course; 
I apologize to you and to Nan; but please tune in tomorrow. 
A demain.

Sel et Poivre
Les Fêtes de Pâques- Easter weekend- has made me think of dinner parties and dinner tables; always one of the fun parts of hosting a dinner party for me,   is weighing my decor options: a very classic table, all white starched tablecloth and napkins, silver shakers and tall candles: my humble version of grand? or perhaps a more fun, vintage look with a different vintage salt and pepper shaker for each guest with multicolor linen placemats, and 40's Vallauris pottery candlesticks? more fun...or what of a more earthy table exotique with metal birds to hold the salt and pepper, ostrich eggs, ivory accessories on a sand and taupe damask tablecloth and smoky brown water glasses? Yes, that, I really like.
The deadline will push me to decide. As usual.

 les grands classiques: for a more formal table

les naturels: ivories and dark browns

les amusants: '50's shakers for each guest

 l'insolite: for a homesick Parisian?

  1. The Eiffel tower one is so cute, but my favorites have got to be the white and black tall ones. Classical yet modern. Love that post. Thank you
