The Turquoise Table: Finding Community and Connection in Your Own Front Yard by Kristin Schell

The Turquoise Table: Finding Community and Connection in Your Own Front Yard

My first initial impressions were that I loved the way the book feels in my hands. This isn't your normal book. It reads more like a small, yet beautiful coffee table book that you can shove in your purse. The pages are gorgeous and so inviting, just like the painted picnic table that the author created. I love how this book is one that creates spaces for community, relationships and to meet new people. The idea behind this is that you can invite people over and you don't have to worry about a clean home because your picnic table is outside. This book is so easy to read and is filled with stunning photos. You'll enjoy stories from others as they experience the Turquoise table and the delicious recipes. This book even has a book marker in it, which makes it even more fabulous. I love how Kristin paid so much attention to the details, which makes this a lovely read for the summer and even better to actually do. We should all be apart of the larger community of the the turquoise table. I give this book 5/5 stars and the opinions expressed here are my own. A favorable review was not required.

Oh, this is a such a lovely idea. I wish we could do this where I live, but it I can't in my condo. I am so intrigued by the pages and color you speak of with this book. I will look for it in the library.

Anna, I think you'd enjoy this book even if you can't participate at your condo. Maybe you can find a friend and do the turquoise table with. I highly recommend going to the library and at least giving this book a read. Have a great day!
