Setting The Table
Of all the preparations and activities during yuletide, I think my favourite is decorating and setting the table. It's all a joy: selecting the tablecloth, dishes and napkins. Writing names on placeholders. Tying ribbon around cutlery and in little bows. Snipping greenery and berries outside and bringing them in to adorn the table. Lighting candles... then stepping back to admire the gathering together of all the things I love.
Do you have any favourite table setting memories and traditions? Is it the sight of a particular china pattern that arouses nostalgia in you? Maybe it's an heirloom decoration, the smell of pine, or the feeling of a cold draught when the front door opens to let in another guest with cold cheeks. Or the taste of cranberry punch, gingerbread or a special family dish...
At Figg Street Co., we have a few things to make your tabletop delightful this holiday. Note that many of these items are in-shop only. While we carry some products online, there's a lot more to see in the store, with new items arriving continuously. So if you're able, pop by to see us in person.
We wish you and yours much joy ahead - including any preparations you're making this month for the holidays. If any of those preparations are in the kitchen, don't be surprised if you find others lingering!
Have a lovely week,
