While many of us aren’t traveling or will celebrating with only those in our “pods,” Thanksgiving 2020 (like everything else) will be decidedly different. On the bright side, this means: no travel delays or crowded airports, no squabbles over the remote, and less stress overall. On a less cheerful note, it could make for missing one’s family and feeling a little blue, more of a reality.
Not to get all Monica and Rachel on you, but exactly when did, “Friendsgiving,” enter the lexicon? As someone with family four states away, gathering pals and convening over turkey or pizza, masked, socially distanced or via Zoom, seems like a reasonable tradeoff. In the interest of forging new traditions, how about making over the Thanksgiving table with color and cheer, reminding that home is wherever we are this holiday.
Chic ½ and ½, by Thomas Fuchs Creative, is awash in optimism and brilliant design. Crafted from durable melamine, this delightful tableware collection is comprised of richly saturated color abstractions in equal parts and offered in the following: light blue/navy; ivory/navy; fuchsia/red; orange/navy; and green/navy. Colors are mixed and poured into the melamine, not sprayed, assuring lasting vibrancy. Products can endure everyday use, and are dishwasher and BPA safe, and are great replacements for disposables.
I’m loving the salad set and trays, bowls and plates and am feeling table kinship with Ellsworth Kelly. Perfect for at-home or outdoor entertaining, snacking or elevating home cooked or takeout meals to new levels. Priced well and sold in sets, ½ and ½ is a great gift for foodies, families, newly marrieds or singles, the kitchen-challenged, the perpetually clumsy or those in need of a home design intervention. An unexpected and practical winner for all on your gifting list.
