Patterned Plates

We all know that we eat with our eyes first. The same dish, nicely displayed and presented will generally make you want to eat it more than if it comes spooned into yesterday's take-out containers.

Don't get me wrong, some foods are best served stripped of any fancy tableware (think authentic fish and chips served in newspaper or street food served on paper plates) but for most dishes, a little extra effort never hurts. Here are some of my current favourites - I especially love the Kate Spade and Anthropologie ones!

Which one would you add to your dinner table?

Outdoor Accessories

I'm spending a few days at my parents' home in Paris for a short vacation, so I apologize for the lack of posts! I will soon be back with many photos to share and stories to tell. I've discovered new restaurants (it seems that everytime I come home there is a full list of new places to try) and taken the time to walk around a few neighbourhoods I don't usually spend too much time in. Although the weather hasn't been very nice since I've arrived here, I've been making up for it by preparing for the warmer months. These pretty outoor accessories are my favourites for 2012.

Which of these would make a nice addition to your patio, balcony or terrace? I'm loving the bright touches of reds and yellows, it makes me want to sit outside with a homemade fruit juice and a few tasty nibbles. Here is the list of where each of these are from if you want to track them down:
