It’s a rare day/week/month when I offer up two table settings in a row, but as today is the birthday of one of my favorite detectives of all time, I could not let it go by un-celebrated.
This mysterious table for two came together easily. I grabbed my favorite Royal Doulton Toby Jug, a stack of books, a couple of chess pieces, some mini gas lamps, filled some Sherlockian goodie bags, and there it was.
I love paying homage to my favorite fictional (blasphemy to call him fictional, I know) characters, the more mysterious the table setting, the better.
As the sun set and the wicks in the little lanterns were lit, dining became positively magical! What’s in the goodie bags, you ask? Well, that is my own little mystery.
Do you have a favorite book, or series of books? Challenge yourself to create a table setting in honor of the author or main character. It’s a lot of fun to create and even more fun to dine.
