I used 2 different cameras for these table scape shots and you’ll be able to see the difference.
I bought the tablecloth at Target and set the table around it.
Josh and Laura were going to come over to help eat my latest test recipe for our new Mennonite Girls Can Cook book coming out next May.
A lot goes in to creating a cookbook. I’m glad I have 9 “sisters” to go through this process with.
It would be daunting to do a project like this on your own.
It was fun to put together things I’ve collected here and there to finish off the table setting.
Stemware, dishes, flatware and linens from antique malls, thrift stores, discount stores and on huge markdowns from major department stores rounded out the table.
We enjoyed a wonderful meal at this table with Josh and Laura. Everyone gave my recipe a thumbs up and I’ll be sharing the recipe in our new cookbook.
The day was cold, clear and sunny and it was fun to see how the sun added it’s brightness to the setting.
I’m looking forward to enjoying many more meals with family and friends in November and December. I find enjoying fellowship around food to be so satisfying. It feeds me physically and spiritually.
Yesterday I went shopping for a new pair of jeans and some boots. I forgot about Monday being a holiday and didn’t anticipate the crowds at the stores. Thankfully I had success. I find it difficult to find jeans that fit right and was happy to find some that will work and at a good discount. What did you do on our Monday Remembrance Day /Veteran’s Day holiday?
