Happy Holidays From Our Table to Yours…

We called my grandmother of French Canadian decent Nanna.  Holiday dinners were set in her 1950’s ranch livingroom tucked between the sofa and the Christmas tree.  Her fine dishware, displaying black scrolls and flowers, was modest by some standards. Nanna found it special and made me feel special in the way she told me, every year, how it was trimmed in silver. Some of my family members find the set outdated. I like sharing a meal that carries familial history. I delight in finding new ways to dress up the same, old china.  This year’s table is anchored by Tiffany blue linen napkins, in an upscale bistro style.
