360-Degree Table Setting

No Comments 02 August 2013

Recently, our friends at Observatory Hill Studio acquired some pretty neat new software that allows them to photograph objects and table settings from a 360-degree perspective. It’s great for showcasing certain objects that have a unique or inconsistent shape, but it’s also fantastic for sharing a complete dinner table setting. You can spin the image to see a particular item or angle, and zoom in to see finer detail.

This is the first table setting we tried with the new software, and it came out pretty well! We invite you to take a peek and see what you think – hopefully this is just the first of many new interactive settings.

Feedback welcome! Hope you get out there and eat something delicious this weekend.

Last week we shared with you scenes from the cocktail hour and dinner preparation at our most recent dinner. Today, I’m back with the incredible menu that Chef Benji prepared for us to enjoy! We set the table in white with his menu in mind, and it really came together beautifully. To see what all was on this table, we’ll send you over to the Didriks blog, but for now – onto the menu!

How To Set a Table

No Comments 03 April 2013

We pulled this handy table-setting chart out of the Didriks blog archives recently, and thought we’d share it with you. Whether you’re getting ready to host your first big dinner party, or you’re a seasoned pro, this chart proves handy for all of your table setting needs! Just print a copy and stash it where you keep your dinnerware. Never again will you forget which fork goes where, or how to arrange your glassware.

If you’re in the market for new dinnerware, glassware, or really any tabletop decor – head on over the the Didriks website. Missing a cooking utensil? Take a peek at what Local Root has to offer.

Happy entertaining!

Dinner 24: Hearty Holiday Feast, Dinners

Hearty Holiday Feast

No Comments 19 December 2012

My how the holiday season has flown by this year! Here we are, 6 days until Christmas, and it feels like I pulled my winter jacket out for the first time just days ago. Our recent Holiday Dinner Series almost seems like a distant memory now, even though it only occured a few weeks ago. It was certainly a memorable one, packed with comfort food classics, a beautiful locally-purchased pork roast, and plenty of bubbly and wine. It often happens that I’ll start to plan a menu, and a theme emerges – this time, the theme was cranberry. So fitting for the season!
