Caught up in a world of overscheduled calendars and a frenzied on-the-go lifestyle, Kristin Schell, founder of Turquoise Table, was desperate for more intentional ways to connect with the people in her life. One afternoon, she put a bright turquoise picnic table in my front yard, hoping to create a simple place to gather without the pressures of entertaining. It worked!
A new concept of hospitality unfolded in her neighborhood. The Turquoise Table has become a meeting place—kind of like the old village well—for neighbors, friends, and even strangers, to hang out and do life together. The table has spurred a front yard revival in our neighborhood and had become a welcome place to gather and love. Before long the Turquoise Table led to a movement of Front Yard People—people just like you and me who want to create community right where we live.
All across America, neighbors are getting to know one another at turquoise picnic tables in the most simple place of all — their front yards. From California to Maine, the Turquoise Table has become a symbol of hospitality and a welcome place to slow down and connect with friends and neighbors.
