Celeste Heiter's Adventures in Asian Food & Film

Designing a Table Setting

Middle Eastern culture is both mysterious and exotic, and the mention of Persia conjures up images of rich tapestries and carpets, colorful tile mosaics, arabesque motifs, and polished brass. For this month's 'Children of Heaven' Dinner & a Movie, I'm hoping to capture that same feeling with my table setting. I already have several pieces that I think will suit the occasion, but I'm definitely going to go snooping about in our local thrift and antique shops for a few more items to achieve the full effect.
