I had a simple buffet last Sunday for my son’s birthday. After all of the clutter of Christmas, lovely though it may be, I wanted something quite the contrary: simple, colorful, and with clean lines and a sense of freshness that promised spring.
|The centerpiece was one of the apothecary jars that I'd used for candy on my Boxing Day table. Here I simply filled it with lemons. The color was perfect with the flatware and Williams-Sonoma tablecloth.|
|I have napkins to match the tablecloth, but thought I'd go with something a little bolder with this solid pattern. This was my son's place setting, the little bag at the upper left contains his favorite chocolate chocolate chip cookies.|
|I made use of a new napkin fold called the Oriental shawl.|
|It was a very simple table setting overall. Each guest, though, did have individual salt and pepper shakers. I've had these for ages and use them as often as I can. It saves so much passing back and forth during the meal.|
|I love this little fellow!|
|And his brother! This set of unusual candlesticks was a wedding gift.|
