Good food still deserves better!

Around Christmas, I wrote a post about Kentucky Crafted artists who make great things for the holiday table. However, as humans, we eat in groups all year round.  And since the summer weather is becoming more tolerable, many Kentuckians are dining al fresco again.  In celebration of people getting together “just because,” here are a few more decorative arts for the the outdoor table. Enjoy quickly before Labor Day!

Berry Bowl

You can rinse and drain your berries, then put them straight on the table with this beautiful and useful strainer.

Bottle Stoppers 

If you have been invited to eat at someone else’s home, the least you can do is bring a bottle of wine or olive oil. The most you can do is pair it with one of these glass bottle stoppers.

Pepper mill 

This pepper mill is crafted like a beautiful piece of furniture.

Dinnerware

I can’t condone using that pepper mill to grind spices for food resting on a paper plate. I can definitely imagine that peppermill providing flavor to something on these dishes.

Salad Bowl 

It’s an unspoken rule that eating outdoors requires a salad. Whether it is lettuce, pasta, bean or fruit-based, your salad will look delicious in one of the Hoefer’s expertly glazed bowls.

Mugs

When the sun starts to set and the meal has been served, coffee is always a nice way to end the evening.

Greeting Cards 

Don’t forget to say thank you to your host or hostess. It’s the best way to ensure that you will be invited back.
