i don’t know about you, but when i come home from the farmer’s market, or my favorite local provisions shop, i tend to want to keep it all out on display. it’s just food, i know, but there’s something so pretty about fresh seasonal summer fruits and i might even feel something close to pride, or gratifying about having just shopped for healthy food. dumb, or self-congratulatory perhaps, but i think it also helps me eat better and reminds me about what i’ve got in stock, rather than have it tucked away in the produce drawer in the fridge and forgotten. something that might be often overlooked is how just a simple bowl of summer fresh fruit, peaches or apricots, for instance, look so pretty out on display in your kitchen or dining table. it’s something i always see in European homes but not quite as often here in the states and it’s really just so appealing to me, and clearly so easy to do. so, i’ve been keeping a lot of fresh fruits on a ceramic platter and a lovely black marble bowl full of lemons (they smell so good) out on my countertop after my trip to the weekly farmers market — and it makes me feel a little bit like i’m living on the amalfi coast, or perhaps Provence — it’s a lovely illusion, anyway, and a practice i’ve really begun to embrace. they always add them in photoshoots, so why not save a little on fresh flowers and instead display colorful produce that you can actually eat instead? not to mention, the vessels and hanging baskets themselves can be so gorgeous and they can make for incredible tablescapes for entertaining, too!
