DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS!

It’s the details. They are the things that people remember. Sometimes we just want to throw a quick dinner together for friends and make it as simple as possible. Other times, we want to try a bit harder, plan, and pay attention to details. These are my favorite dinners. Call me crazy, but I love to sit with a cup of coffee and make lists of what I can make and do to make a dinner extra special for friends. I am a planner and a list maker, so this makes me feel happy and in control…I am not good in a panic situation! (my friends will vouch for me)

ANYWAY…One of my favorite little details makes our dinner table just a little prettier. I bought a few plain, glass bottles with stoppers.  I fill them with little pieces of fruit…maybe some lemon or lime slices, maybe a few sprigs of mint or basil, maybe even a few little berries. I then fill each bottle about 1/3 full of water and freeze these. At dinner, I remove them from the freezer, fill them with water and place on the table. (on a saucer if it is humid). They look pretty, taste fresh, and encourage guests to stay hydrated! (between glasses of wine!)

CHEERS!

GOOD TO KNOW!

  1. I remember I first saw water served in bottles like this at a small Italian vegan restaurant in Portland and I fell in love. I went that next day to buy myself one, and found a blue one! 🙂
