Food Styling with French wine, baked ham and cheese.......


Hi Everyone,  What a couple of weeks I have had....(I will explain below)

I really hope you don't mind, but I am re-posting a favourite table setting today for
Susan's party at TT today.

This is a post that I did a couple of years ago, a food styling and tablesetting job for
one of my clients.  It was a two day shoot on a lovely property in Canyonleigh
and whilst the chef prepared the food I created the settings.  From memory I think we did six different settings from breakfast to Dinners.  I love this one because of the lovely reflection on the glass with the water behind.  It was at the end of the day when the light was just beautiful.  I also have a passion for beautiful decanters and bottles, I have hundreds of decanters and bottles in my collection.  I also love the bottles of French wine,
I have some very old bottles of wine that have only ever been used as props....... 
but after the last couple of weeks I think I might just open one tomight. 

The last four weeks,
My Mother has been in hospital
My Father is forgetting things!!
One of my brothers was taken to hospital the day
my Mother came home, he is still there and I am
about to go in a see him now.
I have been almost living at the hospital
I haven't been able to open my studio for over a week, so I haven't
done any work. hmmmmmmm

I have often wondered what will happen when my parents are too old to look after themselves,
Well.....that time has arrived!

Sending love to you all,
xxxxx Coty
