Very nice setting... gives me ideas to mix china limoge pieces I have from my great-grandmother with my actual tableware. Slightly disparate but so unique and personal. Gives all the charm and warmth. Very well done! I wish I couls invite myself over when in your city :)

Lucky friends!
Love the thoughtfulness in your sharing a winters meal. They must have felt very special! I adore the bird plates, a delight and reminder of spring just around the corner. I enjoy reading your posts.

I love it whenever you set a table. Everything just looks so regal. I'm still amazed that you are such a young man..your taste is just too sophisticated. It's weird to look up to someone so much younger than me. Thank you for sharing this beautiful setting and delicious menu.

Hi! What a lovely table you've set. You have some very pretty dishes and I really like the mix. I adore salt and peppers and yours are so nice.
Now the food! Oh, it looks so good!
I hope you'll pop in to see my tablescape!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia;)

I love tables that combine mix-match items. You don't need a complete set of matching glasses when a variety is so much more interesting.

You set a beautiful table. I especially love how you paid attention to the place setting right through to the coffee and dessert. Love lemon pound cake!

Beautiful tablescape, love the small lamp on the table, it does remind me of a fancy nightclub of the forties or earlier, so cool...enjoyed your blog...Phyllis

STEFAN-

This is so well done...like a dinner diary, with pointers and ideas and details and even 'where to buy'...no magazine currently is doing anything as useful, inspiring and wonderfully personal, especially.
(I loved your comments on de Vera...well, you must get yourself invited...he is delightful. Watch next week for the store.)
I note that everyone had a comment about even the minutest details of your party...even the foil cutter.
I was a little nervous about the hot teapot on the mirrored glass as heat can crack glass. Cracking suddenly and breaking...is not pleasant. Don't want you to have any more 'accidents'...with witty pictures, indeed.
Salad: I've never seen it served as an appetizer, though your point about 'using the plates' is a perfectly valid one. Nor have I seen a salad served in a bowl (Hels) in mid table.
I find a salad at a dinner party a bit of a bore, in general--and the oil dressing is not good for ladies' lipstick! We want to look good the whole dinner.
How about a little amuse-bouche! Thomas Keller makes small and gloriously beautiful tastes and small bites (you would be an artist with this concept) as he feels that once you have taken a bite or two of anything, you are then basically eating the same thing over and over, nothing thrilling after that. I rather agree--and find eating lettuce leaves (trying to stab) over and over a bit tiresome.
Think: amuse-bouche...and your friends' mouths will be 'amused'.
cheers, DIANE

2010-02-03T23:23:18.254-05:00

A beautiful and proper dinner for a wintery night. Yummy! Your traditional table is perfectly appointed. I am such a fan of the little lamp. There is something so elegantly traditional and very rich about it! And wedgewood! Oh, so beautiful!!!!!
I have so enjoyed visiting you this evening.

This is FAB! The crystal is divine...and I swear I gained 10lbs just by looking at the gorgeous roast beef! Hugs, Lana

2010-02-03T22:09:59.919-05:00

What a beautiful table. I like the traditionalist of it -- the beautiful china (and not all in the same pattern) and crystal and silver.

2010-02-03T21:54:12.162-05:00

Stefan, I have pals who (or wives of pals) who serve Domino's pizza on disposable plates in front of the TV, and I have friendly acquaintences who serve over-elaborate food on valuable china, but I don't have any friends who serve simple, well-prepared food on beautiful dishes the way you do. I hope your friends realize how fortunate they are to have a thoughtful host like you.

2010-02-03T20:24:44.327-05:00

Down East - I have a silver chest for the flatware which does a good job (the silver was barely even dull), but the tea strainer won't fit in it! I had forgotten all about it ( my everyday teapot has a strainer built-in) and it was in the back of a drawer. Now it's right in my cabinet with my everyday tea things to use and not get tarnished!

Hels - salad as a first course is an american custom - I know it's not that way in Europe. I think Americans think it is a light way to start a meal and gear up for the main course (and it gives me a chance to use a different pattern of china!).

2010-02-03T19:36:37.482-05:00

The glasses, china and linen look wonderful, especially the champagne flutes!

But salad before the main course -is that usual? I have lived in European or British countries all my life and always see the salads served with the main course. The large salad bowls, placed in the centre of the table, are often themselves beautiful crystal or china.
