Summary

Summary

"An antidote to the veneer of perfectionism so often presented by books of its kind, Wabi-Sabi Welcome offers readers license to slow down and host guests with humility, intention, and contentment." --Nathan Williams, founder of Kinfolk

Wabi-Sabi Welcome is sharing a pot of tea with friends. It is preparing delicious food to nourish, not to show off. It's keeping a basket of cozy slippers at the door for guests. It is well-worn linens, bouquets of foraged branches, mismatched silverware, and heirloom bowls infused with the spirit of meals served with love.

In this lush entertaining manual, author Julie Pointer Adams invites readers into artful, easygoing homes around the world--in Denmark, California, France, Italy, and Japan--and teaches us how to turn the generous act of getting together into the deeper art of being together.

In this book, readers will find: unexpected, thoughtful ideas and recipes from around the world; tips for creating an intimate, welcoming environment; guidelines for choosing enduring, natural decor for the home; and inspiring photographs from homes where wabi-sabi is woven into daily living.


Author Notes

JULIE POINTER ADAMS has been casually entertaining friends for the better part of her life, but she began doing so professionally when she developed and directed Kinfolk magazine's original dinner and workshop series alongside editor Nathan Williams for several years. Julie has planned, hosted, and overseen hundreds of both small and not-so-small gatherings all over the world. She currently lives in Santa Barbara, California, with her husband, Ryan.
