We are talking about simple tablescaping, family dinners, conversations at the
table, and all such things at our next mentor meeting. Just for fun, I took some of
my (too) many dishes and made a variety of place settings the night
we mentors had our planning meeting. For inspiration, I suppose.
These dishes are all cheap or gotten at resale shops.
Except for these that were my mother's.
You may gather from these settings that I have soup on
my mind, and especially love blue and white dishes and transferware.
We hope to instill in our girls thoughts of tradition,
simple beauty, and honoring their guests by setting a pretty table.
At least we'll throw it out there!
Before I put it all away I took a picture.
Some of these plates I only have a couple of, and
I got them because, well, I could change out dishes often.
I try to set a pretty table for our meal each night; I know
the Gardener appreciates it, though it seems a rarity anymore.
Each plate is like a piece of art!
