Setting The Table – Sweet Han’: Caribbean Cooking with Sarina (Ep. 6)

Setting The Table – Sweet Han’: Caribbean Cooking with Sarina (Ep. 6)
I admit it, I am not much of a fan of the color blue. I can admire it from afar, but when it comes to my own purchase decisions and accessory choices it’s rarely a contender. That’s why I challenged myself to come up with a blue tablesetting that would get -me- excited for the 6th episode of Sweet Han’: Caribbean Cooking with Sarina. The only problem, it turns out that I didn’t...

For the fourth episode of “Sweet Han’: Caribbean Cooking with Sarina” I was inspired by a lovely place setting that I saw on Pinterest (follow me by clicking here if you are so inclined). The color pink has been on my mind lately so I thought it would be a good way to highlight it. I don’t normally enjoy silk flower arrangements but this one that I purchased on ebay last year...

For Episode 2 of “Sweet Han’: Caribbean Cooking with Sarina” I was inspired by an image I saw of a small room that was ornately decked out in the French Provençal style. Also known as French Country Decorating, I appreciate this décor’s use of cool whites, distressed woods, and muted primary shades of reds, yellows and blues. For my spin on it I incorporated cream dinnerware,...

Setting The Table: Cooking With Larry Fournillier (November 18, 2012)
For my second appearance on “Learning To Cook Caribbean With Larry Fournillier” I was inspired by a tablescape that I found on Pinterest. I used its color scheme of white, silver and natural woods to guide my own vision. Ivory plates and white dessert plates, were accented by white seaside votive holders, entrée platter and a particularly treasured jug. Silver highlights were provided...

Setting The Table: Cooking With Larry Fournillier (November 4, 2012)
For my Google+ cooking debut (see below) I decided to go with an all-white motif. Symbolizing new beginnings in many traditions I thought it would be a great way to kick my online video presence off with a bang! When creating a monochromatic motif, it’s important to combine a variety of materials and textures (as well as shades) to avoid a sterile or somber appearance. Flickering candlelight...

Tu B'Shevat Tablescape 2011
Wednesday evening is the start of Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish New Year for the Trees. This holiday, and its accompanying seder, encourages participants to reflect on how the earth’s bounty (especially the forms that fruit take) mirror our own spiritual evolution. For the event, or any time that you want to bring a ‘natural’ feel to the fore, I have focused on a neutral palette...
