We had the pleasure of attending a baby shower brunch on Sunday. Good things: it was wonderful to spend time with the proud mama and her sweet new son, the weather was glorious, the brunch was delicious (frittata! lemon cake!) and the surroundings - idyllic. One tiny detail was so smart and pretty, we just had to step out of guest mode and put on our editor's hat - we snapped a few photos of our hostess Gioia's ingenuity...she used saris as table linens.
Colorful, light, summery and reminiscent of French linens from Provence, these bright saris were a perfect look for the backyard gathering. They also are practical, working equally well on the round and rectangular tables and finally, they are washable, a very good thing when it comes to table cloths. (Thanks, Gioia!)
