If not every night, it’s most often that I hear the question,
“can I help?”
My hubby does not cook. The BBQ grill is the closest he will come to cooking.
I don’t complain (much) as he is so very helpful in other ways around the house.
The kitchen is just not his thing.
Sometimes I have to direct him to where certain things are in the kitchen.
So making it easy for setting the table is a good thing.
Now this is truly not a new idea.
Many have done exactly this … often on breakfast tables,
maybe not so much on dining room tables.
I do not have a breakfast room.
I turned my large breakfast room into a sunroom.
So we use the dining room that is adjacent to the kitchen every day.
This will stay on the table until I have an epiphany
of a great Winter centerpiece. But for now, my hubby loves this!
I have made a promise to myself to use more of my dishes and glassware
that I usually save for special occasions. So stemware will be used every day
and when a guest is served a drink, they will get stemware.
One of my New Year’s resolutions was to “try” and cut down the sweets.
I LOVE dessert! So I am using these vintage sherbet/fruit cups to minimalize
my sweet portions. A perfect serving size for fresh fruit or frozen yogurt.
Did you notice the sweet blue and white plates underneath the sherbet/fruit cups?
I bought them in a cute gift shop in Martha’s Vineyard last Fall.
Would you believe that they are Melamine? I only bought 2 of these,
not knowing exactly what I will do with them. I wish I had bought more.
They are by QSquared (Cambridge Rose)
So here you have it, everything needed to set the table for the two of us.
Candle …. check! Dishes …. check! Stemware …. check!
Silverware …. check! Napkins and Placemats …. check, check!
Dessert cups with pretty blue and white plates …. check, check!
Flowers . . . . A BIG CHECK!!!!
I wish you a most beautiful and fun weekend.
So happy that we will not be snowbound!! We will be enjoying the warmer temps!
