My husband and I both work from home. There are so many people who wrongly assume that because we both are home all day, we have loads of extra time to spend with each other. I'm here to publicly declare that this is definitely not the case. We don't each lunch together, instead we both sort of drift downstairs toward the kitchen whenever each of us realizes we are hungry. In fact, when we are each engrossed in our separate offices, there are some days where we can go almost the entire day with only a few minutes of chit-chat in the hallway. We call those our watercooler moments! I share this with you, to provide some context as to just how excited I was when asked to review Moll Anderson's new book, Seductive Tables for Two: Tablescapes, Picnics, and Recipes That Inspire Romance.
Moll is a well-known lifestyle and romance expert: you may have seen her on various TV network morning shows and several big-name daytime talk shows. Here's a short clip (approximately 3 minutes in length) that I think best describes Moll and what she's known for: inspiring us to live passionately and - working with what we already have as a foundation - to make our homes passionate and seductive spaces.
OK, now that you're caught up on who Moll is, I want to dish about her book! I shopped for this book online at Amazon.com, and I also purchased a few little "extras" at Pier 1 Imports to complete my own romantic tablescape. You can see what I shopped for in my Google+ album, including details on the items I purchased.
|I love the way the candle flame reflects off of the vase behind it!|
|Moll Anderson suggests using flowers and candles in your tablescape, especially for romance!|
|I used some diffuser sticks, without the scented oil, to bring out the twigs in the large vase.|
|I liked the earthy element that this candlescape evoked. Instead of mixing the rocks all|
together, I separated them by color. I like the way it turned out!
|The small votive candle holder, which I had already, matched perfectly with the new large vase!|
|While we normally don't use pillows on the seat backs, I took a tip from Moll to make things comfy and cozy!|
|Moll has a small section in the book about champagne, including a tip|
that the smaller the bubbles, the creamier and smoother the champagne will taste.
|I love the spicy colors in these cloth napkins!|
Set aside some time for you and your partner. Create a romantic tablescape, a seductive table for two in your own home, and enjoy a getaway without having to get away!
If you want to learn more about Moll, you can follow her on Twitter, on Facebook, and you can check out her website too. Moll has a weekly radio show on XM Talk 168 every Saturday at 5 PM EST, and she'll be on Access Hollywood soon to chat about her book and all things romance.
