Fabulous French Fridays ~ The Art Of The French Dining Table

I have dining tables on my mind. I keep folders of things I love and thought perhaps you might enjoy a peek into one of my little collections. Generally, when you visit Metis, Andrea and I often write detailed and hopefully informative posts on things authentically French. But in thinking about the French dining table (whether it is authentic or just a grand interpretation) I think that there is no right or wrong way to prepare for a meal. One can however immediately sense when it has been done beautifully. So this week we will let the images speak for themselves.

All wonderful. The first one is just the way I like to dine, several plates of delicious nibbles, some cheeses with olive oil, fruits etc. Heaven. That sink in the 2nd to last image is divine.

Though I am not a minimalist by any stretch of the imagination, simplicity does have quite the impact, doesn't it?
