Many of you know that everyday I eat together with my family (as described in my post Our Family Table). No-one will be surprised, then, that I enjoy eating at a table when I visit family and friends. The meal may be an elaborate dinner or a simple breakfast; but it is not only a beautifully set table waiting for us that I enjoy the most. What I savour is the act of eating together; the sense of comradeship that exists between a group a people who enjoy one another’s company. I have spent many hours sitting around the table talking for hours on a variety of topics.
Some tables are simply set; and others a little bit more elaborately.
I often take the time to set a table with care; and appreciate it when my host does the same. It helps to set the atmosphere of the time we will spend together at the table; and helps to make the event a little special.
Do you enjoy setting tables? When do you take the time to set an elaborate table?
