You may not realize it, but you are real artists every evening when you sit at the table! We are talking about tableware, for which you all have a real craze and where you no longer hesitate to let your creativity speak. Whether for family dinners or when you receive your friends, you have got into the habit of setting the table to highlight the dishes you have prepared and, in France, this is a bit of a sacred tradition. The art of the table is above all a French art of living that says a lot about our pleasure to receive. A beautiful, well-laid table is a real mark of respect and a way to unite your guests around the meal. So if I were to give you advice, it would be to be uninhibited when you set the table and not be afraid of making mistakes. Of course, there are certain codes to which we are attached but your table must above all reflect your personality and the way you want to receive your guests. You can for example opt for mismatched dishes and if you do not dare with the plates, do it with the glasses or the napkins. The mix is ​​always a winner in the decor. And setting the table is a real game where everything is possible with a little creativity. Are you lacking inspiration? I suggest you take a quick tour of the Grand Prix des Arts de la Table whose final will be held on November 13 in Paris. On the program: 4 amateur finalists and 4 professionals will compete in the art of table dressing to designate the big winner of 2012. On the website www.grandprixdesartsdelatable.fr, you will be able to find the results but also many tables created by the candidates to give you ideas for entertaining your friends and above all having a good time around the table.
