Between fast food and busy schedules gone are the days when dinnertime is treated as a special occasion. The idea of an intentional mealtime just isn’t in the cards anymore. Such a tradition should always be valued as a special time whether it be just a dinner for two or a family reunion.
Sorting through Bon Marche’s table linens for this weekend event I start to put together thoughts on how to bring back this lasting European tradition into my families’ home. The answer is simple; a table can be so easily transformed with the addition of a few candles and the omission of paper napkins, something I know I’ve grown accustomed to over the years. A candle can allow a table to take on a gourmet feeling. The simple switch from paper to linen will not only bring out the sophistication in your table set up but also bring out that little bit of green in you that you’ve been dismissing all this time.
Bon Marche’s linens inspire that same passion for dining and entertaining. The colors, patterns, history and quality all echo the French love and enthusiasm for eating together and sharing a special moment in a beautiful surrounding – a dressed table with vibrant color and casual elegance – you just need to light the candles and open the wine.
Enjoy and Bon Appétit!
