No matter whether it’s the hubby and me or friends for a simple week night dinner, I make some effort to set an attractive table. Somehow I relate a pleasant table to the food tasting better and to lingering after the meal for late day conversation.
This simple table features a runner inspired by a leftover piece of my handwoven fabric. Combining it with some remnants was a good way of not letting anything go to waste!
Earlier in the day I had arranged cheery yellow alstromeria in vases that easily moved from another spot to the center of the table to surround the candles that were there.
Dishes? No problem. Plates and bowls of different but complementary colors add a touch of fun.
The plates are from a thrift shop and the bowls from the dollar store, good finds both.
I wish the plates were real Fiesta rather than a copy cat version, but that might be too much to wish for considering their price!
The table is ready. Beef stew is simmering in the slow cooker. Wine is chilling. The doorbell just rang. It’s time to enjoy an easy evening with friends.
i so appreciate your friendly visit and the comments you leave behind
