The Look: Hyacinth


For you




For your table

The red wax seals sold me on this look.  I love the idea of physically sealing a rolled napkin like a gift.  It’s old-world romantic and a non-cheesy way to incorporate red.

I’m also a big fan of red and pink together.

Imagine the table after the meal: petals fallen, glasses empty and red wax reminders scattered like valentines on the wood.
