Inviting Warmth

“It’s the company that makes the meal, not the cooking.”

Isn’t it fun to go to friends’ homes for dinner and delight in their creativity?  Most of mine know that I will come with camera and snap away at their special touches, and thankfully they don’t mind if I share them with you.

This crisp fall night, the tablescape was warm and inviting.  Colors perfectly reflected the season, and guests couldn’t believe our hosts just happened to have the gold and orange color combination on hand!  Don’t you love the irregular shape?

I particularly liked the subtle sparkle of the napkins which were flounced in the stemmed wine glasses.

The creamy tablecloth was topped with a lovely brown runner with a wonderful detail at either end.

And the centerpiece was just the right combination of flowers softly illuminated by candlelight.

Together, all the elements combined for a beautiful table, contributed to a delightful atmosphere and reflected the hosts’ warmth and gracious personalities.

i love your comments, so jump right in and share yours
