Let’s be honest, folks. Life is too short to have insignificant dishes. This is a realization I only recently came to, mind you. It took having dinner at a friend’s house where the dishes were simple and unique and gorgeous and (I am convinced) made the food taste better. I realized that loving your dinnerware is something changes your perspective. When you focus on the details, life is brighter.

Reiko Kaneko is a designer who is bringing fine bone china into the modern world with her innovative and artistic eye. Reiko Kaneko Limited houses some of the most gorgeously unique dinnerware I have ever come across. There is no exaggeration when I tell you I am absolutely in love with every single piece Kaneko creates. From the Breakfast Express Trio to the Drip Tease Sugar Bowl, this is functional art that takes your table from blah to bloom.

Reiko Kaneko Limited is giving away one Drip Tease Jug in Gold to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Tuesday, April 16th. Comments now closed…good luck!

    that’s a fun question. there are several bible characters that would be fun noah, moses and joseph. but also, gilda radner, mark twain and president obama

    Juliet Farmer says:

    Cary Grant, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn–i would have nothing to add to the conversation, but i would bask in the beautiful-ness of the brunch.

    Rachel S says:

    President Obama, Jon Stewart and Audrey Hepburn; an interesting mix of smart, witty classy people.

    Lauren P. says:

    I would combine my three loves (social work, poetry, and family) and invite Jane Addams, Anne Sexton, and my grandmother. Brunch with innovative, brilliant, and caring women would be perfect. There is so much to learn from these ladies.

    Michelle Elizabeth says:

    If I could invite 3 people over for brunch, I would invite Benjamin Franklin, Mother Theresa and Will Smith. I think I could learn a lot from them as well as have a very enjoyable brunch.

    Regan says:

    I think I would invite my two grandfathers (both deceased, one that I never got to know because he passed before I was born) and my grandmother (also deceased). I miss them, and their stories, so much, and I would like to finally meet my dad’s dad and see what he and my grandmother were like together.

    Jen says:

    Nora Ephron, Julia Child and my best friend.

    Nora Ephron –  to amuse us with her quick wit and brilliant storytelling.
    Julia Child – because someone needs to cook this brunch.
    & my Best Friend (whom I haven’t seen in years because she moved out of state) because I need a valid witness to this amazing brunch.

    Sparrow says:

    I’ve been thinking about this all morning: and here is the final roster:
    Virginia Woolf, Elizabeth I (the virgin queen), and St. Teresa (16th-century female mystic and nun). I want to talk to these ladies about what it means to be a woman, both in powerful and quiet ways. I’d thought about inviting Genghis Khan, but he might inadvertently drop the milk jug, and then he’d really know what it means to feel the wrath.

    HNR says:

    I would invite my mother, my grandmother, and my great-grandmother. I never met my grandmother and or her mother and I would love to know about my family history, see if the strong-willed, sassy commonalities my mother and I share were shared by these women, and give my mom the gift of seeing her mother again. If only!

  10. 10
    Nikki says:

    Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, and Sophia Loren.  I would love to hear these fabulous women gossip and laugh about life, moviemaking and MEN over Mimosas, Bloody Marys! Fun brunch!

  11. 11
    Sharon Siqueiros says:

    David Alfaro Siqueiros, Salvador Dali & my husband. It’s all about the art…..my husbands’ great great uncle is Siqueiros and he hasn’t seen him since he was a small child….Dali is my all time favand I’d like to know just what makes him tick

    Liz K says:

    Harper Lee, Julia Childs, Amelia Earhart the first three that come to mind. Interesting and talented women.

    I once learned that maybe its best to NOT meet famous people you admire.  So, I’d love to invite someone I already know I liked – my grandpa who just passed away.  I’d love to feed him a big meal then hear him say, “that’ll do ’til I can get home and get something to eat!” once more.  I’d invite my dad and brother because I’m sure they’d like to see him too!

    Tiffany says:

    Can they be fictional? If so, I’d love to be part of the mad tea party. I’d have a cup of tea with the Mad Hatter, the March Hair and Alice.

    Sydney says:

    Seeing as though I adore brunch, especially if there are eggs Benedict and mimosas involved, I would rather spend less time on the awkward small talk, trying to figure out what you have in common, and spend more time on those hilarious embarrassing moments we try to forget, laughing so hard we cry, and just loving one another so deeply it hurts. That is hard to do with 3 complete strangers (as much as I would love to meet Mother Teresa) so those attendees would be my mother and two best friends that live across the country. We would be the ones staying until the chairs were turned onto the table, the waiters simply waiting to clean our plates so they could leave. But we wouldn’t care because we would be happy.

  16. 16
    Lindsay V. says:

    Jennifer Lawrence (because I’m convinced we would be best friends if only we would meet), Blake Shelton (because I’m moderately in love with him), and Ghandi (just to round out the conversation).

  17. 17
    Brandon Todd says:

    I would want to have brunch with C.S. Lewis, Bill Murray, and Mother Teresa. I know it sounds like a strange mix, but those were the first to come to mind and I think they would make for the most memorable brunch ever.

  18. 18
    Jessica says:

    I would invite Anne (of green gables) who would be a wonderful brunch companion, Pippin (the hobbit) they do breakfast right in the Shire, and Meg Murry (a wrinkle in time) because she is always up for adventure, and what is brunch without adventure?

    Jennifer says:

    I would definitely invite my dad – he died in January and I miss him so much. And since my dad will be there, I would also invite my mother and my sister(s). I know I am only supposed to invite 3 people, but I would have to sneak one of my sisters in, too.

  20. 20
    Cathy Franck says:

    I would invite Princess Diana, Oprah and Harriet Tubman.

  21. 21
    Ngan says:

    Such a tough task to narrow down! I think my 3 brunch buddies would be Theodore Giesel (Dr. Seuss), Tina Fey, and Einstein. Interesting conversations would be had!

  22. 22
    Renee A. says:

    I would invite Mother Teresa so she could inspire me and encourage me to do what I really want to do….help the less fortunate.Next would be Steve Jobs so I could learn to be as creative as I’d like to be and not let fear control me and lastly I would choose Martin Luther King so we could try to work together to resolve the never ending battle of racism.

    My Dads parents both died within 2 months of eachother last year. I keep having recurring dreams about Grandad, specifically hugging him. I wake up with a damp pillow from crying…. What I’d give to hug him one last time. I’d invite Grandad, on behalf of Grandma too.

    My Nana, my Mums mum… I was so close to her and still am. She died 2003. She would definitely be there, on behalf of Grandad too. 

    And my daughter, Addi. My Nana never got a chance to meet her, but Grandad and Grandma did. What a beautiful table it’d be… I’m going to sleep now, smiling, thinking what it’d be like…

    Jackeline says:

    There are just way too many people I would love to invite. If I had to keep it small I would love to chat with Jeff Goldblum and Woody Allen.

    My mother, my daughter and husband

    Wehaf says:

    Marie Curie, Hypatia of Alexandria, and Rosalind Franklin.

    ann shake says:

    i’d love to invite
    1)Thomas Edison to tell him how hard it is to keep trying and to find out what kept him going, did he ever think about giving up etc
    2)Charles Darwin to hear about his travels to Gallapogas island, in my opinion one of the most intriguing places in the world
    3)Bear Grylls: the guy looks completely unrattled sometimes having to snack on snakes hehe and would love to see what sort of survival equipment he can come up with using brunch table utensils.

    Kate B says:

    I would invite my best friend who lives several states away and whom I do not get to see nearly enough to make my heart happy. I would also invite Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Are we going to solve great world problems in this meal? No. Are we going to learn great truths? Probably not. But Tina and Amy have a friendship that I admire very much and I simply think it would be fun to hang around them with my best friend and soak up all of their warmth and humor and level-headedness about a very difficult business for women.

    Susan F says:

    Barbara Walters (because of all the amazing people she has interviewed)
    Tom Cruise (because I always had a crush on him)
    and
    My Mom because I miss her so much

    Brittany K says:

    My pop – he was the greatest, Chipper Jones and Luke Bryan. 

  31. 31

    Jane Austen (so I could pick her brains about writing), Joan Didion (to tell her how much her words mean to me) and perhaps Michael Bolton or Ronan Keating (because I’m a teenager at heart 🙂
