Through Thanksgiving, I’m going to get as much mileage as possible out of the decorative gourds that have appeared with other table settings over the last few weeks.
This time they are paired with my favorite green bottles which haven’t seen much recent action. I like using them because they don’t require much flower arranging talent and can be grouped in a variety of combinations. As you might guess, flowers this time of year in Maine are not from my garden but from the grocery!
Now that the copper toned chargers have been rediscovered, they are used with harlequin patterned dishes, good in any season, and with colors of fall solids.
Even the wine glasses have hints of color that reflect those in the dishes.
Folding the napkin to make a pocket for the utensils is a simple touch. Fold a quartered napkin in half and turn back the corners to create that little extra touch.
With everything in place and the lights turned down low, it’s back to the kitchen to put the finishing touches on dinner. I’d love to have you come.
