The best way ever to entertain, I believe, is to get together over a meal, eat, drink & discuss. The meaning of life, human differences, world history or simple everyday pleasures. Talking points are important but more importantly are the group of people that you surround yourself with. Those who makes the difference – who makes you feel comfortable, feel good & warms you … in body & soul … including the dining area!
Cozy, comfortable, nice, pleasing – things that matters, sometimes more than the food you are served. Environments depends on what you prefer or are used to. It’s rarely about impression, in the true sense. It contributes to the atmosphere, of course. I would lie if i said that space or environment wasn’t important. But the point is that it’s more important with the people participating. The personalities that makes the event. From the topics of discussion, to the life they have lived, their attitude to things. A certain smile, a silence that is pleasant or a constant cackling taking place but that is contagious.
Amidst all this, the common dining area is also part of the whole. That which creates wellbeing, together with the aromas & flavors, lit candles plus mood lighting, AND the music. So, to sum it all up – space, enables the place & the individuals makes the event. I hope this makes sense in english 🙂
