It's Thursday which means that it's time for tables and dishes! Thursdays are always so much fun as we get to see everyone's great tablesettings. Thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting this great event!
We invited another couple for dinner last week. It's spring and we love to eat out on the patio before the heat and humidity of summer force us back inside. But since it is also spring, chilly temperatures often supplant the warmth of May.
Such was the weather last Thursday . . . . and so our outside dinner party came inside!
But I did use one of my outdoor tablecloths -- as a topper to a floor length gold one that I often use in the breakfast room.
My two blue and white Spode pitchers hold garden flowers and herbs. But then we usually have flowers on the breakfast room table -- even if it is just for the two of us.
Dishes are my blue and white Spode and napkins in the Victorian silver napkin rings are gold to match the wee bit of color in the tablecloth and the gold tablecloth underneath.
Even though we ate inside instead of outside, it was a great dinner party. Steaks perfectly grilled by husband Jim and Hasselback potatoes and farmer's market asparagus accompanied the steak.
Dessert was made from the fresh cherries that were at the market -- individual cherry tarts.
