Everyday Tables

Like many of you, I’ve spent lots of time in the kitchen during these stay at home months, so an invitation to dinner is a welcome treat. Only recently have we begun to gather with friends with the group being no larger than six.

An evening here was a delight as everything about it was warm and cozy just like the folks who hosted. We arrived at their home just in time to see a somewhat smoky sun settle for the night.

Until it was too chill, we visited on the patio. The space was wonderful and it was easy to imagine delightful gatherings there. You’d have to know how rugged the terrain to appreciate the perfection of the stonework.

Inside, the table was set for six, and it was just the kind of table I like….warm and inviting. The carved fish was an eye catcher, but it didn’t get to stay once we sat down.

Table decor was simple and captured the essence of the new fall season.

I particularly liked how the colors in the arrangement were repeated in the dishes. Hmmm, I wonder if that was intentional or a happy accident. In either case, it worked!

It is wonderful to be venturing out a bit as nothing beats spending time with friends and sitting around a table long after the meal is finished sharing stories. That almost makes it possible to forget all the craziness existing in the world these days.
