It's still chilly outside, but the first, elusive sighting of rhubarb in our market has us thinking ahead to warm weather dinner parties.
To get ready, we pulled together the perfect place setting--and a few extra pieces for added inspiration--for a spring get-together. It's colorful, a little offbeat and exactly what we'd dream of setting out for our guests to celebrate the sunnier days ahead.
