Dinner Parties

I love setting tables - I mean I really really love doing it - I usually start the night before and try different settings until I get it just right...............

and usually it involves a lot of white - and silvers with touches of black and lots of candles
( I've had a few mishaps with candles believe me - one night a mini bonfire started on the
table which someone put out with a bottle of wine, lol )
and I painstakingly arrange my napkins for the most part like this

For the ladies

and Gentlemen

normally it would be a white shirt and black tie - ( my white napkins must have been
dirty lol )

wine glasses usually hold a quotation - or a poem - each one different for each guest.............
I get by with a little help from my friends
I[m gonna try with a little help from my friends
I eat pie with a little help from my friends
I get high with a little help from my friends
I'm gonna fly with a little help from my friends
and name tags sometimes include a little trivia on the back of the card

if anyone is interested in the men's shirt tutorial - you can find it here ( super easy - just a little
time consuming!!! )

makes me want to have a party.

  1. I love the way you did your napkins and your table looks so elegant!

  2. Oh, that's just too darn cute! I can do a lot of things but I'm brain dead when it comes to entertaining for some reason. I admire people who, like you, put an effort into it. It makes your guests feel special!

  3. Beautiful table setting! Love all the details you put in to create such a warm and welcoming atmosphere for your guests. So when is your next party? :-)


Due to a large amount of spam ( that I'm tired of going back to posts and deleting ) I'll be using comment moderation from now on !!!
Can I beat these spammers at their own game? Probably not - but I'm going
to try my damnedest !!!
