We had friends over for dinner last Tuesday
Our favorite number for dinner is 6
There are a number of reasons
It allows for great conversation by the whole table,
Dishes for only six make clean up easy
We don't have to put leaves in or take leaves out of the table
And Tuesday last, we had six guests
The table all set for company
Husband Jim has made his wine selections
The dining room table from the living room
A more casual tablecloth because it is a more casual meal
Spode Blue Room dinner plates, hotel silver cutlery, Spode Blue Italian or Blue Room Salad plates
and blue napkins in silver napkin rings
The big balloon wine glasses -- perfect for reds
The forced hyacinths are the centerpiece.
I've really gotten a lot of mileage out of these!
(Two lunches and a dinner!)
(Plus days and days of enjoyment on the breakfast table!)
The sideboard with the dessert wine and ice wine glasses that we bought on a trip to the Canadian wine trail.
And the entree?
(Our daughter's favorite lasagna)
It's Thursday and I'm joining Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
