Food is Memories

The Holiday Season is upon us and that means wonderful Holiday Feasting is about to commence…

Food is Memories.  For me, it’s all about sharing the love of good times, good food, and making beautiful memories.

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to get my friendly competition “ON” at the Desert News Home Show, they invited 6 local Food Blogger’s to each design a tablescape.

My cute friend Jen from Bakerette and I were on ABC Good Things Utah to promote the event- Jen is first up with a fun Halloween Theme and then it’s me- Food is Memories.

A fun way to reconnect with our family and friends is to share memories- of childhood, favorite vacations, and life.  On each name plate I added a conversation prompt to inspire the table conversation with childhood photo’s and reminiscing the good times from when my kiddos were small.

My parents live several hours from me and so this day was extra special because they were able to come and be apart of this event. (yes, still rockin’ my yoga attire)

I worked with Cuisine Unlimited who were SO wonderful to open their warehouse to me and so helpful in assisting me to create my tablescape idea from their collection.

Food is Memories.  I am so grateful for the years spent around my parents and grandparents tables and the wonderful memories shared!

Much Love and Peace~ Ruthie
