Flowers for Freshness

{BLT Market}

I remember hearing years ago that it is nice to have flowers on restaurant tables because  it is a subtle touch that says “freshness.”  That idea could translate into putting fresh flowers or plants on every table (like the rosemary plan in the photo above) or, as many of my favorite restaurants do in NYC, place one large bouquet of in-season flowers near the entrance to set the mood.  I think this could be a great touch at your own home by placing a large/oversized bouquet of seasonal flowers in your entry way or near the dinner table.

 Here are some of my favorites!

In this last photo from ABC Kitchen, they even set out some of the seasonal vegetables that are featured on the menu.
