Are you looking forward to holiday entertaining and cozy winter nights by the fire? ME TOO!

You could be serving in style with this gorgeous Provencial Platter from the lovely girls at LoveFeast Table!

Thanksgiveaway #1 {LoveFeast Shop}

Check out the description on this baby from the LoveFeast shop:

Australian sculptors run the cooper’s craft in reverse and breathe a second, artful life into French oak wine casks. By disassembling the clever puzzle of steambowed oak ribs and cambered end pieces, these artisans have created a range of Provencial Platters. They are fitted with rugged wrought iron hardware hand-forged in Brooklyn. The surfaces are finished with copious layers of high-grade beeswax to a lustre perfectly in step with entertaining for every occasion.

This platter is absolutely gorgeous! I was excited to see how absolutely lovely the craftsmanship is. It is such a quality piece, from the wood to the iron handles,  you will want to set out on display, even hang it on a wall or keep it out on your coffee table or ottoman all the time.

It would be fantastic for serving pizza on the table, too!  I would love to give or receive this as a family gift. It would become a special heirloom for any family.
