What could be a better place to begin than my little bamboo table. Won't some sushi look beautiful sitting on these simple white plates.
They'll act as a blank palette for the colorful fish.
Matching dipping bowls will hold soy sauce and wasabi. For the non-sushi lovers (that would be me)...
...I'll be slurping noodles from these big gingko-covered soup bowls. What Japanese meal would be complete without some tea,
which I will serve from this darling tea set, a gracious gift from my recent Thanksgiving guests. I've set my tea cups upon this handmade glass tray...
...which would also make a fabulous sushi plate.
A beautiful yellow orchid is the final touch. Bowl House was run by a charming gentleman, who I do believe enjoyed watching my kids grow up from sushi loving toddlers to teenagers who are actually quite fun to go out to dinner with. Sadly, we did not even know his name...we just called him "the boss". Sayonara, dear Bowl House, and thank you for years and years of wonderful meals and memories we will never forget. And a special thank you to this week's stand-in photographer, Sofie. Don't worry Laura...the job is still yours! Need some holiday ideas? Please join me this week at the following parties:
