Midwinter Celebrations

Posted in Tabling

By Camilla Swart

MIDWINTER - A time of the solstice – the longest night and shortest day.  A time when the rhythm of time and days is subtly slowed and altered.  A time of sharing and feasting. A celebration of the solstice as the days lengthen from then onwards.  A time for connecting with our loved ones and families in celebration of life and living. A time of quiet reflection and the promise of future growth.

Al Fresco Cool

Posted in Tabling

By Camilla Swart

Sweltering – the only word to describe the Western Cape at this time of year, and much of the country as well.  In Paarl, at Linen Drawer, all the fans are working full time and there is constant traffic to the fridge to fetch cold water for hot and thirsty staff. 

Hot days are followed by warm nights and that’s when the fun starts. It is the time of al fresco dining.  Late sunsets are followed by balmy evenings; no wind, a slight cooling of the air and the only place to be is outside – dining and enjoying the wonderful summer evenings.  These are the times for counting of blessings and immersing ourselves in the absolute fullness of summer.

Of course these evenings are an excuse to bring out the beautiful Linen Drawer tabling - see some photos below:
