After a couple of months of doing nothing much except laying in bed with my foot elevated, it felt good to get back to normal activity like cooking and setting the table.
Mind you the effort was minimal, but it doesn’t take much to make a happy table especially when there’s already something there from which to work. The handblown vases that have been on the table for weeks gave me a starting place.
I started with pink placemats, but the turquoise ones insisted on being chosen. Since I like color I had no problem letting them have their way.
Choosing the napkins was a piece of cake as these multicolored ones from Anthropologie play off both the vases and the placemats. No fancy folds required because the fun napkin rings continue the colorway.
It was tempting to add more color with the dinner plates, but I opted for white ones
and added salad plates with playful patterns and complementary colors. They were pleased to be included as they have been hiding in the cabinet for far too long!
Finished with the ever faithful Fostoria thumbprint stems, a gift from my now hubby several years before we were married, the table is done. It is a first step that makes me feel that all is right with the world! The hubby is even happier as he has had enough of kitchen duty and is glad to welcome me back to the business of preparing meals.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
