Use What You Have Table Setting…

No Comments 10 May 2010

I created this table setting with things I had laying around the house…

It’s my idea of a ¬†perfect breakfast/brunch for two. I think it would be absolutely GORGEOUS as a Shavuot table setting set for a family as well.

Many people own white dishes, and this table setting makes a case for them. Why? You can combine them with other sets, bright napkins look fabulous with them and they can never go out of style. ¬†(Mine were actually my mother’s! They are over 25 years old but they still sell them in department stores today! How is that for timeless!)

I added in these bowls that I recently bought from Anthropology($12), colorful napkins that I bought a few years ago and brightly colored glasses that were a wedding gift. Here are some similar ones.

I used a white linen hemstitch placemat, which is perfect for a breakfast or a lunch. You can buy some HERE ($54.00/Set of 6).

It also helps that I have an absolutely beautiful centerpiece that I took from my nephew’s bar mitzvah yesterday!

The point is… You can mix and match the pieces that you already own to create beautiful tablescapes that are both charming and interesting!

How do you change it up for the holidays? Do you mix and match your sets of dishes? Send us photos, we would love to publish them!

Happy Shavuot!

Organic Quinoa Salad with Fresh Mint

2 Comments 10 May 2010

I am not even sure where my mother got this recipe from (when I find out I will credit you- whoever you are). Anyways, I know that every day, magazines and blogs are posting another quinoa recipe and it is beginning to get tired. But, this recipe really has a unique flavor from the fresh mint, so I suggest you give it a go!

2 cups Organic Quinoa uncooked

2 Israeli cucumbers, chopped

1 small bunch fresh mint leaves, cleaned and chopped

2 Tablespoons Safflower Oil

Juice of 2 freshly squeezed lemons

Salt to taste

1/2 tsp cumin

Cook quinoa according to package directions and let cool.

Add chopped cucumbers and chopped mint.

To make dressing, mix oil, lemon juice, salt and cumin. Taste, and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Pour over quinoa salad and mix
