Traveling in an RV and setting an attractive table for six are not necessarily compatible. The table in the van is only for two people so the rest of us had to eat wherever there was a sit down space. One night, however, we were lucky enough to have a spot in an RV park that had a picnic table right outside the door.
Before dinner treats were a must to be enjoyed with one of the wonderful wines chosen by the son-in-law driver. While everything isn’t a perfect match, the tablecloth from Williams Sonoma adds a little color to the table as do the flowers that had traveled with us from Houston. Nothing like those little touches of home!
Just so we wouldn’t have to eat off paper plates every night, I had brought these colorful melamine dishes picked up at Costco. Not only are they cheerful but all the pieces mix and match and don’t seem to mind being paired with plastic utensils and paper napkins.
And, thanks to our El Paso Walmart stop we even had real glasses rather than plastic cups.
What fun to make something out of very little, and the best part was having the little girls get into the act.
Do tell me about some of your experiences making do.
