In her story on al fresco meals Alison Brownrigg wrote today, "Local ceramic designer Rosanna Bowles of Rosanna, Inc. creates pieces that add that "certain something" to a tabletop, and advises that "The best set table reflects nature's beauty. Set a table that allows nature to take center stage."
Her new line called Farmer's Market (from $20), covered with illustrations of carrots, garlic, peas and olives, is so fresh and alive with nature's beauty that it actually might give the real food a run for its money.
"Use vintage cotton or linen tablecloths that will give a fresh-off-the-clothesline feel," Bowles continues. In order to set the mood, she suggests "placing many clear small votives with tea lights down the center of the table or a clear hurricane candle holder to keep the candle lit. Dine at dusk, a magical time when nature is at its best.""
We so appreciate you including Rosanna Ali. Thank you!
