Celebrate New Beginnings

Thinking of others and of ourselves



 

 

With the ringing in of 2020, our attention is drawn into talk of a new year, fresh starts, new you. 

 

Many of us set goals for taking better care of ourselves, but the focus can quickly become myopic. Don’t get me wrong: Resolving to take better care of yourself is important and necessary and a new year is an appropriate time to look inward and make those commitments to a better you.

 

However, looking outside ourselves also is a worthy endeavor. And while “entertaining” might not be your first thought when thinking of others or self-care, I consider it the perfect platform. At its heart, entertaining should be all about those you are hosting. Those we gather to seat around our table for a meal, or in our living room to share a drink, or whatever kind of event you are hosting – it’s your guests that you are caring for. 

 

 

For this month and in the spirit of self-care and new beginnings, we formed a beautiful partnership with Chelsey Ann at Salt and Water, 629 W. Sheridan Ave., for a “New Year/New Us” gathering. Wares by Craig Proper Home Goods were laid, and a fresh garland of rosemary, seeded eucalyptus, pears, English ivy and chocolate lace provided a low arrangement that not only smelled delicious, but added a bit of whimsy to the table. Pair all of that with a golden turmeric latte and a healthy menu, and now you are not just hosting your guests, you’re taking good care of them. Lastly, think about giving self-care items as parting gifts to send your guests armed and inspired to be good to themselves as they embark on a new year.
