With warmer weather, brings unexpected dinner guests. I know that when the seasons change and the sun is shining, I enjoy hanging out with friends at home, laughing and eating, of course. And being fashionable shouldn’t only involve clothing; it should flow over into your entertaining. Who wants to serve and entertain with boring utensils? No one. The George Jensen Oak Wood salad servers do not fit into the category of boring.

Be the hostess with the mostest, not only with delicious recipes, but with stylish serving utensils as well. Read More
