Everyday Tables

Few tables are happening at our house these days, so visiting friends in Arizona I took advantage of opportunity to set a table for dinner. I couldn’t resist starting with the cloth gotten that afternoon at the Indian Market.

It was fun going through the napkin drawer and finding ones that would work.

Such a mix of pattern and color was reason for a touch of offbeat created with the flatware that was placed off center. Who says you can’t bend the rules a tad?

There was need for little else on the table other than a few votives to cast a soft glow as the sun set.

Looking at the simple table, it occurred to me that the dining area’s decor was a perfect backdrop.

With wine poured and the table ready for the tasty and healthy meal prepared by the man of the house, we were prepared for a most pleasant evening.

As we began the meal, I was struck with gratitude for friends with whom to share time in a place with its own special kind of beauty.

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
