A mix of cottage flowers
simple white dishes
Good food. Good wine. Good friends.
A perfect recipe for a fun filled evening.
I enjoy setting a pretty table any day of the week
but even more so when planning an evening get together with friends.
It's always fun to visit over dinner with a couple girlfriends
catching up and laughing
though, it doesn't happen nearly as often as I would like it to.
A couple of us are getting together for some much needed girl time soon
and I have started planning the table setting, menu and evening already.
One of my favorite table settings involves simple whites & vintage
with a mix flowers from the store and greenery from our yard.
This has just a touch of Christmas as well since it will be a Christmas get together.
Vintage linen napkins with sprigs of cedar greenery
tiny purple flowers & dried roses
Tied together with bakers twine
and topped with a vintage ornament for a festive touch.
I love mercury glass candlesticks
they add just the right amount of shimmer.
On the menu~
whole wheat pasta
topped with sauteed garlic, onion and mushrooms
and tossed with fresh parmesan & italian parsley
It's delicious and a go to dish to serve guests
it's always a hit.
I always love pale pink spray roses
and this bouquet has a $3.00 bunch of tulips mixed in
So pretty with the dried purples and fresh green as well.
I am finally feeling a bit more like myself after that crazy bug
that kept me fairly quiet all week
I am excited to get working on a couple projects tomorrow~
one of which involves a drop cloth
The other involves some changes in the guest cottage
and yes, it just might include some Christmas decorating.
Apologies on the funky coloring in these pictures. I am learning more about how to shoot in the evenings
with lights on (yes, I know that sounds crazy!) but that yellow cast just keeps on coming through
Hope your weekend was great!
