Dress Your Table with Bread and Nuts
Rebecca Moses: Heart, soul and style stands for something very, very important to me. Heart being the things that we love, you know, if we can really tell the world what we love, we come to the point of expressing who we are, that soul issue is that passion, that burning fire inside us that really makes us want to do the things and make things happen and keeps us going, you know, it's something very spiritual, but if you listen to your heart and you use all your soul, you can get to really saying your style, communicating your style to the world around you, which is really communicating who we are.
Sometimes when you have a lot of people at the table, you can't get every single person a bread dish at the side of the left side. So what happened I decided you know what I am going to use the bread as my decorative element. So what we'll do is we are going to just use this bread and these beautiful, see these bread sticks, it's nice to mix the bread sticks all different sizes and you kind of build like a little bit of log here and what's another little trick here is take some rosemary, you known the four herbs of the Italian kitchen are rosemary, basil, sage and parsley, but the rosemary is amazing.
You just want to start eating, you can smell it's like I am hungry, you know, and what I do is I kind of mix it in with the bread and even just the rubbing next to the bread is so great and you know in Italy we just love to sit around a table and pick, you know, it's not just you know that all ethnic cultures enjoy eating, but you know, in Italy we just love to have a race and to sit around the table and just by putting things in people just sit there and they break off and you are being really productive with your space, okay?
Now we will fill in. Now another great thing to do is nuts. Nuts are another fabulous element. I use them also with the shells on them and what I just do is I kind of just sprinkle them around and the table starts becoming very rustic, very organic and I do this with my children. I have a seven year old and a ten year old and they love to be a part of it. You know we've got to get them off those some games, you know, those some games really frighten me.
So I say how am I going to share the experience with my kids and also where they start taking pride of having friends over to the house and making their own table set up. Wallah! You have basically eight or nine flowers there, you haven't spend a lot of money and you know what if I didn't have the roses, you know what I would have done, I would have put my earth pods on the table. The important thing always to keep in mind is you always want to be able to see every guest at the table. You never want to block vision, okay?
So you have got candle light which is really great you want your guest to glow. Okay. Candle lights make everybody look beautiful and when everybody looks beautiful everybody feels beautiful okay.
