Inspiration in White: Entertaining

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be at a wedding in the countryside in Georgeville, Quebec. I was not there as a guest but as the assistant to the wedding photographer who just happened to be my daughter Chloé. I have been to a fair number of weddings but I have to say this was one of the most fun, out of the box weddings I have ever been to. Everything was charming, clever, and in such good taste. As I was driving home it got me thinking about entertaining and how to have fun and surprise my guests whenever they come to visit.... how to make even a simple supper out of the box and special in some way. There are really so many ways to change things up starting with the table setting. Not the same white tablecloth (my standard) but a really fun table...and what about the food? How about making something new and different...What are some of your clever entertaining ideas? Here are a few ideas to get you started.

A pretty simple table with individual flowers

A clever way to add the menu to your table.

Yummy individual Ceaser salads.

A gorgeous set-up for cheese and fruit.

Love this wooden planter with herbs as the centerpiece!

How about flavoured water? So easy and very elegant.

Set up an olive bar for guests to have with their cocktails....or a special cocktail bar even better..

Pretty mix of topiaries and flowers on the table...
