    DescriptionThe subject of table presentation has been revived in recent decades by the likes of Martha Stewart, but the amateur chef and cookery markets are well overdue an interesting, alternative take on the topic. "The Set Table: The Art of Small Gatherings" is a beautiful book of imaginative ideas for small gatherings, from supper for two on a candlelit urban roof terrace to a picnic lunch for friends on the living-room carpet. And don't worry: there's no need to invest in expensive dishes and flatware; instead, you will be inspired to use what is already at hand: to repurpose old tiles for butter dishes, say, or use a rolled-down brown paper bag for a bread basket. From linens to glasses, flowers to serving platters, you will learn how to make a handsome table with scant resources. With clever tips on how to unearth treasures in junk shops, easy guides for simple things to make at home, ingenious ideas for simple flower arrangements and recipes for delicious homemade condiments--every table you lay will be special. The favored look is simple, artistic and uncomplicated, celebrating the wonderful experience of eating well with the people you love. Beautiful photography and illustrations lend "The Set Table" an engagingly bohemian feel and the text by Hannah Shuckburgh--Feature Editor for Conde Nast's "Easy Living" magazine and popular blogger at Hanpicked--brings the subject matter to life, reflecting the effortless, informal styling of her tables.
